Time and indie studio Blumhouse Television have brokered a deal to produce two documentaries about the history of gun violence in America’s schools and the flourishing student-led movement to change the nation’s gun laws.

Currently in production is The Walkout, a film that looks at the student activism that emerged following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting on Feb. 14. Told from the students’ point of view, the film includes the work of student filmmakers and professional doc crews who follow student activists from around the U.S. as the burgeoning movement takes shape.

The Walkout will follow this movement leading up to the national school walkout on April 20 that demanded new gun laws.

The second documentary, Enough, examines the last two decades of mass shootings in America, the complicated history of gun control legislation, the ongoing trauma of survivors and their families, and the work being done to prevent further tragedy.

Enough is slated to bow in April 2019 to mark the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre that occurred on April 20, 1999, in Columbine, Colorado.

Executive producers for Blumhouse Television are Marci Wiseman, Jeremy Gold and Mary Lisio. For Time, exec producers are Bruce Gersh, Ian Orefice, Lance Nichols and Edward Felsenthal.
