First Lance Armstrong cheated death by surviving cancer; then he cheated the world’s greatest cycling race seven times in a row. Now he is unmasked – in KING OF CHEATS (feature documentary, 1 x 90’ HD).

Combining the talents of BAFTA award winning director Alex Holmes (Dunkirk, House of Saddam) with the unique insight of ABC reporter Quentin McDermott, KING OF CHEATS will bring a cinematic treatment to one of the greatest stories of the modern era. An epic story told with breathtaking sweep and scale.

McDermott’s ground breaking investigative reporting of Lance Armstrong’s doping has led coverage of the story in twenty countries around the world. His close personal connection with key insiders will deliver further headline grabbing scoops that will serve as the editorial foundation of this film which will, for the first time, tell the full story of the conspiracy to hide the truth behind the legend.

Director, Alex Holmes will be attending MIPTV 2013 and is available for meetings with buyers and interviews with media.
