Discovery Channel is reportedly working on a documentary, which will show a very intimate side of one of the most controversial leaders of Latin American history. The new doc, titled “Castro: The World’s Most Watched Man,” will reveal some of Fidel Castro’s most personal and political life details through interviews and footage of intelligence workers who have been following the revolutionary leader for years. Discovery Networks Latin America/U.S. Hispanic and American Heroes Channel have lined up a global programming initiative, which also includes the first series shot entirely in Cuba: “Cuban Chrome.”

Kevin Bennett, EVP and general manager of American Heroes Channel said the moment to do the documentary was now thanks to circumstances lining up with the US-Cuba relations on their way to mend. “The timely news of Cuba and the U.S. restoring relations, along with Castro’s deteriorating health conditions, opens up a momentous opportunity for us to document this iconic and unfolding story,” Bennet explained. “AHC is dedicated to telling the stories of not just heroes but all of history’s most legendary characters.”

The documentary on Castro, will also prove he has been one of the most spied on men of all time and is set to premiere this fall on AHC and on Discovery Networks International’s factual channels in more than 220 countries.
