Plot Synopsis

Directed and produced by Matthew O'Neill and Perri Peltz, AXIOS is a four-part documentary series of news-oriented specials, premiering two days before the 2018 midterm elections. In each half-hour episode, AXIOS highlights the week ahead in politics, business and technology -- and the topics shaping the future. Each edition features coverage of a timely big issue, followed by documentary shorts, interviews with major newsmakers, and insights. The news and information outlet Axios was co-founded in 2016 by Mike Allen, Jim VandeHei and Roy Schwartz.

AXIOS premiered on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 6:30pm ET/PT on HBO. The series opener features an exclusive sit-down interview with President Donald J. Trump and Axios journalists Jim VandeHei and Jonathan Swan, covering his views on: birthright citizenship; his relationship with the media; climate change; regulating tech giants like Google, Amazon and Facebook; health care; and the conflict in Yemen.
HBO premiered the season finale of AXIOS on Sunday, November 25, 2018 at 6:30pm ET/PT, featuring an interview with three iconic figures: revolutionary tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham, and Microsoft founder and climate change advocate Bill Gates. A visit to NorthWood Church in Keller, Texas and the interview with Graham reveal the range of perspectives in the evangelical community. Musk shares a vison of a near future in which machines are smarter than the humans who made them. Gates discusses the perils the planet faces, and his hope that humanity will actively meet the challenge.
