The Documentary Channel has acquired Incident in New Baghdad, an Oscar-nominated film chronicling the 2007 shooting of two Reuters journalists in Baghdad, according to company president James Ackerman. Ackerman's team, whose channel is carried by satellite providers DirecTV and DISH Network, will broadcast "Incident in New Baghdad" in late May.
"I am so pleased to be partnering with the Documentary Channel in bringing this story to the wide American audience it deserves," said Mr. Spione. "The on-the-ground reality of our wars is too often kept hidden from us — so I applaud the Documentary Channel's courage in bringing Ethan McCord's story to center stage."
During the month of September locally-based Documentary Channel will be featuring documentaries showcasing the lives of various Americans as they go about their different professions.
the series follows four vibrant and unforgettable characters as they walk through the daily routines of their VERY different professions -- a rural sheriff solving a murder, an avant-garde musician performing in smoky cafes, a brilliant yet foul-mouthed professor of religion and a southern preacher ecstatic in his faith. With its raw and memorable character studies, "The Work Series" shares unique insight into the spectacular and the mundane, the amusing and the redemptive, to provide a remarkable documentary film experience that is entertaining, eye-opening, and empowering.
The documentaries, all of which were directed by renowned filmmaker Daniel Kraus, are set to air on Sunday's throughout the month at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
"DOC continues to work with talented filmmakers and outstanding companies to produce compelling, newsworthy content that we can telecast to the masses," adds James Ackerman, president and CEO of Documentary Channel. "Our customized programming partnerships are a solid and trusted formula that ultimately creates the opportunity to better educate and inform consumers."SEE ALSO: Fading to black on NPT in search of green Note: Solidus Co., an investor in NashvillePost.com parent SouthComm, also has invested in Documentary Channel.
