Channel 4 Orders Ivanka Trump Doc


Channel 4 in the U.K. has commissioned a documentary focused on Ivanka Trump, the oldest daughter of U.S. President Donald Trump, from ITN Productions.

The hour-long production, tentatively titled Ivanka Trump: America’s Real First Lady, looks on as Matt Frei travels to the U.S. to investigate the 35-year-old’s relationship with her father and influence on his presidency. It is directed by Lesley Gardiner and will premiere on Channel 4 in the U.K. next month.

Tom Porter, who commissioned the doc, remarked: “President Trump’s daughter has emerged as a major force in his administration and increasingly, it would seem, in world politics. Matt Frei’s razor-sharp insight allows this entertaining film to analyze what makes Ivanka tick and ultimately ask, could this be the first female president in training?”

Adam Vandermark, executive producer for ITN Productions, added: “It’s clear President Trump invests a lot of trust in Ivanka, along [with] her husband Jared Kushner. They’ve emerged as Washington’s ultimate power couple. But how did this very close father-daughter relationship develop, and what does it mean for the dynamics of the Trump Presidency? Matt Frei delivers a fascinating insight into Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, and finds out if she has her eye on the ultimate prize—the Oval Office eventually for herself.”
