ComingSoon is excited to debut a clip from the second episode of the HBO Original documentary series The Invisible Pilot. The series is executive produced by Adam McKay (Succession) and is directed by Emmy-winning filmmakers Phil Lott and Ari Mark. It follows the story of a successful pilot who unexpectedly jumps off a bridge in 1977 and the revelations that came out afterward. The three-part series airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO and streams on HBO Max.
“When Gary Betzner, a father of three, unexpectedly commits suicide the mystery surrounding his death deepens and unfurls a caper-filled tale involving a clandestine world of drug smuggling, gun running, and involvement in a covert war conducted at the highest level of the U.S. government,” says the synopsis. “With a wealth of colorful archival material and shaped by vibrant storytelling by Gary’s wife, ex-wife, children, friends and associates, public defenders, law officers, and journalists, The Invisible Pilot is a cautionary tale of unchecked power and covert operations, centered around a small-town man with outsized dreams.”
