Kevorkian Doc Debuts on HBO tonight. Re-airs This Week.

Stick a needle in him he’s done.  Dr. Jack Kevorkian the man known as Dr. Death, gets the HBO Documentary treatment in Kevorkian.  Dr. Jack Kevorkian, whose participation in at least 130 assisted suicides earned him the nickname “Dr. Death,” courted controversy in the 1990s by arguing for death with dignity, and ended up being sentenced to a ten- to 25-year prison term for the 1998 death of Thomas Youk.   Despite serving eight and a half years in prison, Kevorkian today insists, “I don’t have regrets.  In fact, I’m thankful.”

Directed by Matthew Galkin (HBO’s “I Am an Animal:  The Story of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA”), KEVORKIAN paints an intimate and surprising portrait of this complex man when it debuts MONDAY, JUNE 28 (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.  Other HBO playdates:  June 28 (5:25 a.m.) and July 1 (1:00 p.m., 12:20 a.m.), 4 (4:00 p.m.), 7 (11:00 p.m.), 10 (12:15 p.m.) and 13 (4:45 p.m.)
