Fruitvale Station

After an extremely successful opening weekend on a limited release (partly due to its timeliness), BET network will air a half-hour special on the making of the critically acclaimed drama Fruitvale Station tonight starting at 7:30pm est, ahead of its nationwide release July 26.


See full press release below:

New York, NY – July 15, 2013 – The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced today the special “FRUITVALE STATION: The Story of Oscar Grant,” a behind the scenes look at the making of the film, will premiere exclusively on BET Networks on Monday, July 15, 2013 from 7:30 – 8:00 P.M. ET/PT. The special will also re-air on CENTRIC on Friday, July 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The full-length film opened to limited release on July 12, 2013 to rave reviews and tremendous box office success, and tells the real-life story of Oscar Grant played by rising star Michael B. Jordan.

Monday’s making-of special will trace the remarkable journey of this film from production to Sundance to Cannes and now in theaters across the country. TWC is proud to collaborate with BET who has championed this film from its very beginning starting with the Sundance Film Festival. BET recognized early on the importance of director Ryan Coogler’s feature debut film and the significance of Oscar Grant’s story. They have shown tremendous support for the film including – the BET Experience screening in late June, featuring the film and its star Michael B. Jordan at the BET Awards earlier this month, partnering with TWC on the film’s New York premiere on July 8th, and online features on BET.com.
