This week's episode of the CNN Original Series The Eighties "The Fight Against AIDS" airs tomorrow, June 2, at 9pm ET/PT and focuses on the pandemic that created a movement and defined a decade.

In the 1980s a mysterious and lethal illness developed into a pandemic with enormous political and cultural consequences. What started as a medical detective story grew into a societal nightmare as first dozens and eventually thousands of people all over the world contracted the lethal virus that came to be known as AIDS. It's a story of ignorance and heartbreak, but also one of compassion, courage and dedication.

From EMMY Award-winning producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman in association with HBO and EMMY Award-winning producer Mark Herzog, The Eighties explores the individuals and events that shaped a decade of exceptionalism and excess. Through its use of rarely seen archival footage and interviews with journalists, historians, musicians and television artists as eyewitnesses to history, The Eighties will look at the age of Reagan, the AIDS crisis, the end of the Cold War, Wall Street corruption, the tech boom, and the expansion of television and the evolving music scene.
