Franklin (2024)

Ended / 7:00pm Apple TV+ 57 min.
Explores the thrilling story of one of the greatest gambles of Benjamin Franklin�s career. At age 70, without any diplomatic training, Franklin convinced France � an absolute monarchy � to underwrite America�s experiment in democracy. By virtue of his fame, charisma and ingenuity, Franklin outmaneuvered British spies, French informers and hostile colleagues, all while engineering the Franco-American alliance of 1778 and the final peace treaty with England of 1783. The eight-year French mission stands as Franklin�s most vital service to his country, without which America would not have won the Revolution.
