HBO To Make Prop 8 Documentary – Set For Debut in 2014

HBO Prop 8 MovieThe Hollywood Reporter is reporting that premium cable able  HBO will begin filming an upcoming documentary about the Prop 8 lawsuit backed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights on behalf of couples Kris Perry and Sandy Stier and Jeffrey Zarillo and Paul Katami. The documentary will tell the story of the people behind the case and their respective journeys to secure marriage equality in California — and for all Americans.

HBO is turning its documentary lens on same-sex marriage. The premium cable network said Tuesday that it has begun production on a telefilm focusing on the landmark Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage. Over the past five years, directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White have had exclusive access to the legal team led by conservative Ted Olson and liberal David Boies as well as the lives of the four plaintiffs in the case. The untitled feature will be completed by year’s end for a 2014 debut.

The story of the battle to overturn Prop 8 is the story of a modern-day American revolution,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said. “HBO is proud to present what is intended to be the film of record on this landmark case.”

Good show HBO!
