Canal+ in France and HBO Europe in CEE are among the international platforms to have picked up a feature documentary about the storming of the US capitol.

Four Hours at the Capitol, first produced for HBO and BBC by London-based prodco Amos Pictures, examines the four hours in which the Capitol building, together with its senators and representatives, came under direct attack as the politicians assembled to formally certify the US presidential election on January 6.

The 1×90’ doc, which is distributed by Abacus Media Rights (AMR), is from producer Dan Reed and directed by Jamie Roberts (The Rise of the Murdoch Dynasty).

Deals have also been secured with ViacomCBS in Australia, Discovery New Zealand for Three, HBO Max in Latin America and Iberia, VPRO in The Netherlands, VRT in Belgium, DR in Denmark, SVT in Sweden, NRK in Norway, YLE in Finland, SWR in Germany and Channel 8 in Israel.

Jonathan Ford, managing director at AMR, said: “This is a unique and astonishing story told through key participants and insiders, who together create a 360-degree view of one of the most incredible incidents Washington has ever witnessed. The documentary, which has no voiceover, relies on the dramatic retelling of the shocking events which resonated throughout the world, delivering a sobering view of democracy today.”
