Starzplay, the premium streaming service from Lionsgate-owned cable net Starz, has set the premiere date for U.S. military justice docuseries Leavenworth for next month.

The docuseries focuses on the controversial case of Clint Lorance, who is serving a 19-year sentence for murder at the U.S. penitentiary Leavenworth. The former lieutenant ordered fire on three local men riding a motorcycle, killing two of them, in 2012. The event outraged his platoon and led to his conviction.

Now, as Lorance seeks to overturn his conviction, he provides a first-hand account of his attempts to navigate the U.S. Army’s legal system, set against a backdrop of debates around the merits of his conviction and of the overall administration of justice in today’s wars.

Leavenworth is executive produced by Paul Pawlowski, David Check and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh.

It premieres on Starzplay Oct. 20 across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Latin America.

The series will have its world premiere at the 2019 Tribeca TV Festival on Sept. 15 before the streaming launch.
