ViacomCBS-owned broadcaster Channel 5 has commissioned London-based indie Zeppelin Films to produce the 90-minute documentary Murdered By A Mob: The Killing of Bijan Ebrahimi.
The film tells the story of the last 48 hours of murdered Iranian asylum seeker Bijan Ebrahimi’s life in South Bristol.
Alongside witness testimony, the film weaves footage from police CCTV systems and Ebrahimi’s phone, in addition to audio from the more than 20 calls made by Ebrahimi to police asking for help.
Steve Grandison serves as director. Commissioning editor Daniel Louw ordered the film for Channel 5. Zeppelin Films founder Elliot Reed is EP.
Zeppelin Films has produced such titles as Hate Crime: Uncensored for Channel 5; The Murder of Lee Irving for Sky Crime; and 5 Star series Old School for Lazy Kids, Me & My Sugar Daddy and Rich Kids Go Homeless.
