Starz released today the official trailer for its new five-part STARZ Original docu-series Leavenworth. The series premieres on Sunday, October 20th at 9:30 PM ET/PT, following Power Confidential on STARZ in the U.S. and Canada, as well as on the STARZPLAY international streaming service across Europe and Latin America.
Leavenworth will make its world premiere as an Official Selection of the 2019 Tribeca TV Festival on September 15th.
From executive producers Paul Pawlowski, David Check and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, comes a controversial true-crime story playing out in the military justice system. Leavenworth is centered on Clint Lorance, who is serving a 19-year sentence for murder at The United States Penitentiary, Leavenworth. While deployed in Afghanistan in July 2012, the former lieutenant ordered fire on three local men riding a motorcycle, killing two of them and outraging his platoon.
In a first-hand account of a soldier navigating the US Army’s legal system, Lorance seeks to overturn his conviction, provoking emotional debate between supporters and detractors that rises to the national stage. As determinations on Lorance’s fate unfold, questions probe not only the merits of his conviction, but analyze the system at large and ultimately test the balance of guilt and innocence in the inscrutable circumstances of today’s wars.
