Showtime to air Stone interviews with Vladimir Putin


    Director Oliver Stone poses for photographers as he arrives for the screening of his movie “Snowden”, at the Rome Film Festival, in Rome in October. Showtime said it will air a series of interviews between Stone and Russian President Vladimir Putin over four days in June 2017.

NEW YORK >> Showtime is presenting four hours of director Oliver Stone interviewing Russian president Vladimir Putin on four consecutive nights in June.

The network announced today that “The Putin Interviews” will air first on June 12 at 9 p.m. Eastern, with three additional hour-long installments on the following nights. Showtime said Stone interviewed Putin more than a dozen times over the past two years, most recently in February.

Showtime is comparing the project to conversations held by British TV host David Frost and former U.S. President Richard Nixon in 1977.

Stone had also interviewed Putin for his documentary “Ukraine on Fire,” which was said to take a sympathetic view of Russia’s involvement in the conflict there.
