Ronan Farrow and the directors of the Oscar-nominated Jesus Camp are teaming for an HBO documentary investigating threats against journalists worldwide.
The untitled documentary is the first to go into production under a multi-film deal the Catch and Kill author signed with the premium cable outlet in 2018. The three-year pact calls for him to produce and front a series of investigative documentary specials for HBO.
Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady of Loki Films will direct the film and executive produce with Farrow.
"Around the world, journalists are under fire," said Farrow. "They're being spied on using new surveillance technology, imprisoned, even murdered. And we're seeing evolving tactics deployed against reporters in the United States, too, against the backdrop of a new era of misinformation campaigns and rhetoric that seeks to undermine the very idea of objective reporting. I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to work with Rachel, Heidi and HBO to tell these stories."
