Sundance buys rights to ‘Fry’

Network nabs premiere of documentary

The Sundance Channel has bought the U.S. premiere of “Stephen Fry: HIV & Me,” a feature-length British docu that deals with the AIDS epidemic through interviews with people suffering from the disease.

“HIV & Me,” produced by Ross Wilson for the BBC and reported by Fry, the British multihyphenate, will be the centerpiece of a four-hour primetime block of programming put together by Sundance to observe World AIDS Day on Dec. 1.

The docu discusses the alarming rise in the number of new HIV-infected people in Britain and in sub-Saharan Africa, and puts these personal stories into the wider context of global medical advances that have allowed people with AIDS to live long lives. It aired Oct. 2 on the BBC.

The other highlight of Sundance’s Dec. 1 programming block is a repeat of the 2004 docu “The Origins of AIDS,” directed by Peter Chappell and Catherine Peix.
