True crime documentary Leavenworth, exec-produced by Steven Soderbergh, will be released in the UK this October by STARZPLAY.
The STARZ Original five-part docu-series, which has its world premiere at Tribeca TV Festival this Sunday, tells the story of Clint Lorance, who is serving a 19-year sentence for murder at The United States Penitentiary, Leavenworth. While deployed in Afghanistan in July 2012, the former lieutenant ordered fire on three local men riding a motorcycle, killing two of them and outraging his platoon.
In a first-hand account of a soldier navigating the US Army’s legal system, Lorance seeks to overturn his conviction, provoking emotional debate between supporters and detractors that rises to the national stage. As determinations on Lorance’s fate unfold, questions probe not only the merits of his conviction, but analyse the system at large and ultimately test the balance of guilt and innocence in the inscrutable circumstances of today’s wars.
The documentary will premiere exclusively on STARZPLAY in the UK and across Europe on Sunday 20th October, the same day that it debuts in the US and Canada on STARZ. STARZPLAY costs £4.99 a month and is available through Virgin Media, Apple TV and Amazon Prime Video Channels. The subscription service includes series such as Mr. Mercedes and The Act, as well as STARZ Originals on the same day they launch in the US, including The Spanish Princess and Vida.
