Tracy Droz Tragos and Andrew Droz Palermo's Rich Hill was the nonfiction jury favorite at this year's Sundance, but the documentary that's arguably received the most Park City attention is Stephanie Soechtig's Fed Up, a look at the relationship between the food industry and obesity. 

The film narrated by Katie Couric and produced by Couric, Laurie David and Regina K. Scully has been purchased by Radius-TWC. The Hollywood Reporter describes the film as following "a group of obese children for more than two years as they try to lose weight, while it also takes aim at the food industry and the U.S. government."

Sounds like we found this year's An Inconvenient Truth.
