About ‘The Murdochs: Empire of Influence’

Based on Jonathan Mahler and Jim Rutenberg’s riveting New York Times Magazine article “How Rupert Murdoch’s Empire of Influence Remade the World,” this CNN Original Series explores the legacy of media mogul Rupert Murdoch and the dynasty he built.

Featuring exclusive reporting from The New York Times, interviews with people who worked inside the Murdoch companies, and decades of rich archival footage, this seven-part series goes behind the scenes of the improbable rise of a media tycoon, his outsized influence around the globe, and the intense succession battle between his children over who will inherit his throne.

“The Murdochs: Empire of Influence” follows the high pressure agreements, political infighting, and generational treachery – and how the ambitions of one family patriarch gave rise to one of the largest media empires in history. The series will regularly air on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on CNN. The show was originally intended to air on CNN+ before the service was scuttled earlier this year.
