Music Festival Mass-Shooting Doc Set for Paramount+


Paramount+ is to exclusively premiere 11 Minutes, a four-part documentary that takes viewers inside the stories of those who were at the 2017 Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, where a mass shooting took place.

11 Minutes features the first in-depth interview with country music superstar Jason Aldean, who was on stage when the first burst of automatic gunfire went off. The documentary also includes first-person narratives of officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police force, trauma teams at Sunrise Hospital and concertgoers.

11 Minutes uses never-before-seen police bodycam footage and 200 hours of cell phone video to allow viewers to accompany heavily armed officers as they approach the shooter’s hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay.

The doc will debut on September 27 on Paramount+, marking the week of the event’s fifth anniversary (October 1).

11 Minutes is directed by Emmy- and Peabody-winning director Jeff Zimbalist (Momentum Generation, The Two Escobars, ReMastered, The Line). It is produced by Triage Entertainment, All Rise Films, Third Force Productions and See It Now Studios and distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
