The distribution arm of Los Angeles-based Electus has sold the film to Foxtel in Australia, as well as an undisclosed broadcaster in Benelux. More deals will be announced soon.
The doc looks at the case of Anthony Porter, a death row inmate convicted of murder who was pardoned after a group of Northwestern University students uncovered new evidence. The case resulted in Illinois abolishing the death penalty, but the film questions whether or not Porter was guilty all along.
Sundance Selects and IFC acquired the U.S. distribution rights for the film. A premium cable net has the U.S. TV rights and will air the doc in March. After that, it will be available on Netflix in the U.S.
A Murder in the Park world premiered at DOC NYC in 2014.
