David Boies and Ted Olson
HBO Documentary Films announced today that the network is currently in production on a film about the historic 2013 supreme court case -- over five years in the making -- that overturned Proposition 8, anticipating a 2014 debut.

Yet to be titled, the forthcoming project chronicles the work of bipartisan legal team David Boies and Ted Olsen, who successfully defeated the ban on same-sex marriage earlier this year. Directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White had exclusive access to the case and the four plaintiffs at its center, and will compile their footage to tell the story of marriage equality in California and the US. 

Cotner is currently senior vice president of acquisitions at Open Road Films. Ryan White’s films include the upcoming "Good Ol' Freda," which will be released in September. The deal was negotiated with HBO by Josh Braun of Submarine Entertainment and Victoria Cook of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz. The film is part of HBO's newly expanded documentary programming, which includes the recent "The Out List," a profile of prominent gay and lesbian figures in the media.
