HBO announces documentary film project on Proposition 8 fight

On Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Gay Couples Wed As California Lifts Stay on Same-Sex Marriages After Supreme Court RulingThe New York Times reported on July 9 that HBO has set its sight on a documentary film which chronicles the court battle to overturn California’s Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage.

As same-sex marriage has resumed in the state as a result of the Supreme Court‘s historic ruling to overturn the ballot imitative that banned gay marriage in the state, the network feels it would be exhilarating to show the exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the legal team who argued in the case.

According to HBO, director Ryan White and first-time director Ben Cotner have had access to the legal team of David Boies and Theodore B. Olson for years and the captured footage will also tell the story of the couples behind the case. Both couples were legally married in the state of California on the Friday following the decision when the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided to life the ban immediately.

HBO has been a leader in LGBT programming. The network recently released a series titled “The Out List” and in the past has produced programming featuring gay characters. This project will add to the list of HBO’s prominent programming. Michael Lombardo, HBO’s programming president, spoke of the importance of the documentary in a statement. He called the movie “the story of a modern-day American revolution.”

The documentary is still untitled, but HBO plans to have the project completed and ready to debut sometime next year.

One of the first pictures he saw of himself was of him at maybe the age of three or four year’s old sitting with a book in his hand. But for Tarringo, growing up in the depths of the inner city both in Boston, MA and Springfield, MA made him believe that expression through the literary voice was un-cool and unattainable. As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
