Starz Picks Up Four New Docs


Starz has acquired four new documentaries, including Daughters of the Sexual Revolution: The Untold Story of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

Daughters of the Sexual Revolution offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the original Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders became a controversial pop culture phenomenon at the height of the sexual revolution in 1960s and 1970s America. The documentary premieres on Monday, January 14, at 9 p.m., and will be available for download and streaming via the Starz app.

Another documentary that will be coming to the premium channel is the Oscar short-listed Of Fathers and Sons from Talal Derki, which centers on two young brothers whose father dreams of establishing an Islamic Caliphate. Inside My Heart and Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex Fashion & Disco also join the previously announced Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood and White Boy on the slate of docs arriving on Starz in the coming months.

C. Brett Marottoli, head of program acquisitions for Starz, said: “Starz has acquired an exceptional slate of documentary films spanning a wide range of topics—from empowered feminists in the ’70s to life inside a jihadist military household and a groundbreaking artist who would change the future of fashion. These films will no doubt engage our audience as we continue our commitment to acquire diverse and powerful content for the network.”
