Newsmax TV investigates one of the most baffling mysteries in the annals of American crime as it explores the wild life and bizarre disappearance of the nation's biggest drug dealer.

"The Frank Matthews Story" airs Sunday at March 5 at 4 p.m. ET, only on Newsmax TV, your weekend destination for engaging films and hard-hitting documentaries.

Frank Matthews might have been hailed as a great American success story, a self-made businessman, if it weren't for a fact that law enforcement considered him the country's most powerful drug dealer — bigger than the Mafia.

His organization, headquartered in Brooklyn, stretched across more than 20 states, and he pulled no punches when it came to staying on top, battling with La Cosa Nostra and the militant Black Muslims to keep control of his lucrative turf.

When Matthews was finally busted and facing trial in 1973, he jumped bail and disappeared with $15 million cash — never to be seen again despite one of the largest manhunts in U.S. history. And some 42 years later, the fate of Frank Matthews remains a complete mystery.

"The Frank Matthews Story," directed by true-crime filmmaker Alan 'Al Profit' Bradley, explores the life and times of the crafty and ruthless drug kingpin through rare archival footage, interviews with sources who've never before spoken on camera and never-before-seen photos of Matthews.

"The Frank Matthews Story" adds to the diverse programming featured on Newsmax TV, America's fast-growing news and information channel, carried in more than 40 million U.S. satellite and cable homes.

With compelling original shows such as "Newsmax Prime," "The Howie Carr Show," "The Joe Pags Show," "America Talks Live," and "The Steve Malzberg Show," Newsmax TV has become the nation's must-watch news, lifestyle and information channel.
