DocuBay Adds New Docs on Harvey Weinstein, John Lennon


DocuBay has acquired a number of new documentary titles from the U.S.-based 1091, including stories on cultural icons John Lennon and Elvis Presley as well as controversial Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Films acquired from 1091 include The Harvey Weinstein Scandal and The Last 24 Hours: John Lennon and The Last 24 Hours: Elvis Presley, as well as Diana: The Royal Truth and Janapar: Love on a Bike. The films have been licensed for DocuBay’s newest ‘bay’ called CrimeBay, focusing on the true-crime genre.

In addition to the titles mentioned above from 1091 launching on CrimeBay, fans of the crime-documentary genre will have access to other real-life dramas: from insights into the inner workings of the narcotics trade by the players themselves in Rusty Young’s Wildlands to the transcontinental operation that led to the capture of a notorious money launderer in The Billion Dollar Bust.

Adita Jain, head of acquisition and content at DocuBay, stated: “We’re so pleased to partner with 1091, whose exceptional library is right in line with DocuBay’s diverse lineup of films. With fresh and engaging stories in every genre, including true crime in our latest offering, CrimeBay, the catalog we’ve curated is truly a global home for the best documentary features.”
