With the election of 2016 shaping up to be the most expensive in U.S. history, candidates from both major parties are relying on the generosity of big donors to get their message out. But who are these high rollers, and why are they giving so much of their money away? In MEET THE DONORS: DOES MONEY TALK?, intrepid filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi (HBO's Emmy(R)-winning "Journeys with George") takes viewers behind the scenes at top-dollar fundraisers and chats with dozens of ultra-rich mega-donors from both political parties to find out why they are pouring millions into the election.
