BIO debuts the broadcast premiere of "Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer," written and directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, on July 6 at 9PM ET/8PM CT/10PM PT.
This critically acclaimed documentary takes an in-depth look at the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. As New York's Attorney General, Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America's largest financial institutions and some of the most powerful executives in the country. After his election as Governor, many believed he was on his way to becoming the President. Then The New York Times revealed that Spitzer had been caught seeing prostitutes and the "Sheriff of Wall Street" fell quickly from grace. With unique access, the film explores the hidden contours of hubris, sex and power.
