HBO has acquired the U.S. TV rights for Sing Your Song, a biographical doc on singer/actor/activist Harry Belafonte, which screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

From filmmaker Susanne Rostock (The Long Way Home),  Sing Your Song puts the spotlight on Belafonte’s activism – he worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and participated in the struggle against South Africa’s apartheid – as well as his successful singing and acting career.

The documentary will premiere in the fall on HBO.

Sing Your Song is directed by Susanne Rostock and produced by Michael Cohl, Gina Belafonte, Jim Brown, William Eigen and Julius R. Nasso.
