Starz to expose Secret History

Lionsgate’s US cablenet Starz has picked up an array of documentaries including Matt Tyrnauer’s controversial film Scotty & the Secret History of Hollywood.

The doc tells the story of Scotty Bowers, a former Marine who went in Hollywood after the Second World War and became a confidant and lover to many of Hollywood’s greatest male – and female – stars.

Also on the slate is Fail State, executive produced by news veteran Dan Rather, which investigates the dark side of American higher education, and Half the Picture, about gender bias in Hollywood, as told by leading female film directors.

The shows, which will air this fall and in early 2019, will join Always at the Carlyle, which reveals the untold stories of Manhattan’s 87-year-old legendary hotel, and This is Congo, an unflinching look into Africa’s longest continuing conflict.

The documentaries will be available for download or streaming via the Starz app later this fall and in 2019.

“In a continued effort to bring an immersive experience to our viewers, these groundbreaking documentaries cover a wide range of the human experience and will certainly entertain and enlighten our audience this fall,” said C Brett Marottoli, head of programme acquisitions for Starz.
