Two-Hour Special airs Sunday, October 14 at 9 PM ET on NGC
United States Secret Service: On the Front Line, reveals how one of the most secretive government agencies works to protect the President at home and abroad. The two-hour special echoes one of National Geographic’s core missions, to take viewers places few others have been. The special reveals unexpected stories of trepidation and triumph along with a broader understanding of the significant and serious matters the agency must contend with everyday.
“The Secret Service impacts the life of the president greatly,” Anthony Ornato, Special Agent in Charge of the Presidential Protective Division tells National Geographic. “Coming into the presidency, everything is new. We probably restrict President Trump more than he wants to be restricted. And it's difficult for the President to live in a bubble.” Over the course of one year, National Geographic was given extensive access to four Secret Service special missions. This access provides viewers with an exceptionally immersive picture of the demanding work Secret Service agents and officers face as they protect the President on multiple evolving fronts.
