HBO Documentary Films Seizes ‘Newburgh Sting’ Before Its Tribeca Premiere

HBO Documentary Films has picked up doc “The Newburgh Sting” ahead of the movie’s world premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

Film by Kate Davis and David Heilbroner — the duo behind docs “Southern Comfort,” “The Stonewall Uprising” and “The Cheshire Murders” — investigates the case of the “Newburgh Four,” a quartet of street criminals from impoverished backgrounds who were drawn into a bombing plot by a Pakistani FBI informant. The 2009 arrest has since been alternately lauded as a triumph in the war on terror or criticized as entrapment.

Deal was pacted with HBO by Dan Cogan on behalf of film funder Impact Partners and the filmmakers. HBO will air the doc in July following its April 20 screening at Tribeca.
