Watch The Trailer For Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo

On a day to honor and celebrate Mexican heritage, the new trailer for the powerful documentary Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo has been released. The feature pays homage to Danny Trejo’s heritage—his Mexican roots and his Los Angeles upbringing—as he gives fans a first-hand look into the extraordinary life journey that molded him into Hollywood’s most unlikely hero. The film will be available on digital in the U.S July 7, 2020, giving viewers a raw and inspirational account of Trejo’s unbelievable transformation from hardened criminal to celebrated movie icon and beloved friend of all who cross his path.

From a life of hard drugs and armed robberies to Hollywood red carpets and mentoring addicts, this is the telling of one of the most radical and uplifting transformation stories of human character ever put to film. Directed by award-winning filmmaker, Brett Harvey (Ice Guardians), Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo is the shocking story of one man’s capacity to overcome his demons and discover redemption through the most unlikely of journeys.

With a host of celebrity interviews, never-before-seen footage and personal testimony from Trejo and his closest family and friends, audiences will witness the birth of a Hollywood icon who became a symbol of hope to the people he grew up with and fans around the world. After 46 years of sobriety, he never forgets his roots and is genuinely happy to pay it forward every single day. Trejo has made it his personal mission and debt to society to give back to Chicano communities in Los Angeles through his volunteer work donating food via his iconic Los Angeles based restaurants, buying toys for local children, motivational speaking in prisons, working with animal shelters and being a source of consistent support for those in the neighborhood he was raised in.

The show was pulled off Sirius last Wednesday and has not aired this week.

Stern’s wife’s Instagram, with nearly 600,000 followers, is dedicated to her animal rescue work, and focuses on posts about special needs cats and kittens and animals who need homes. Stern occasionally appears in voice only.

Wait for the end…. #volumeup #bigannouncement

A post shared by Beth Stern (@bethostern) on

Stern revealed the news while petting the couple’s resident cat, Mooshu Peaches Stern, who he has been working closely with to socialize. Stern ended the post with “By the way we should be back on the air on Monday, we’re planning for it. More on that later.”

“See ya Monday,” Beth added, with Stern repeating, “See ya Monday.”

The self-proclaimed King of All Media had been increasingly concerned about the spread of the coronavirus, saying he didn’t even want to be in the building where Sirius is located in Midtown Manhattan, and worrying on the air about “constantly” washing his hands.
