The largest premiere viewership for an HBO Film in 4 years
The debut of HBO’s The Wizard Of Lies logged 1.5 million viewers for its 8 PM linear premiere. With additional replays on the premium cable network and viewing on HBO GO/NOW, the film’s premiere weekend total grew to 2.4 million viewers.
“The film returns repeatedly to Ms. Henriques, calmly grilling her subject, pushing him not just to recount the facts of his crime — something he’s unusually willing to do — but also to accept that he hurt his clients and family.”
“This was betrayal on a Shakespearean scale,” said Henriques, who plays herself in the film. “When someone comes forward who has so flagrantly violated the trust of those who loved him, I think we all feel shaken by that.”
