Cross-platform entertainment network Fuse Media will premiere the film Ready Or Not from David Modigliani (Running with Beto, Crawford) this October as part of its Peabody- and Emmy-winning ‘Fuse Docs’ franchise.
Co-directed by Paloma Martinez, the documentary follows 17-year-old activist Marcel McClinton in his race against a powerful incumbent for a seat on the Houston City Council.
McClinton proves an unlikely candidate as he wrestles with the adult challenges of the political arena and the intense pressures of running a citywide campaign, all while attending high school.
Ready Or Not is the third Texas politics-focused documentary from Modigliani. Running with Beto, which originally debuted on HBO, follows Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s campaign to unseat Ted Cruz in the U.S. Senate. Crawford is a documentary about the impact of President George Bush’s relocation to the small town of Crawford, Texas, after announcing his candidacy for president.
Modigliani has also produced several other documentary films.
Ready Or Not is produced by Modigliani’s Live Action Projects. Modigliani and Martinez serve as producers with Rachel Ecklund.
The film airs Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
