About the series
Here’s how Deadline describes the series: Told through unprecedented access to the people who were there, alongside the reporting of Wall Street Journal reporters Nick Kostov and Sean McLain, the untitled docuseries will tell the full story of how one of the most admired businessmen on the planet became its most famous international fugitive.
Once one of the most powerful figures in the global automotive industry, Ghosn’s world came crashing down in 2018 when he was arrested and held in jail in Japan for allegations of financial misconduct. A year later, Ghosn made global headlines again when he pulled off an extraordinary escape from Japan to Lebanon, smuggled onto a private jet in a box by a former US Green Beret.
