Showtime exposes docs

'Sho Exposure' premieres a doc each month

Showtime has produced a trio of socially oriented docs — “Same Sex America,” “After Innocence” and “Rikers High” — that will air under its “Sho Exposure” lineup in 2005.

Launched in October 2003 as part of the cabler’s initiative to showcase more nonfiction films, “Sho Exposure” premieres a doc each month.

Henry Corra’s “Same Sex America” follows several gay and lesbian couples and their struggle for civil rights in the wake of President Bush’s proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriages. Doc is produced by Alex Johnson and exec produced by Robert Katz and Jerry Kupfer.

Two other docs explore the ramifications of long-term imprisonment.

“After Innocence,” scripted and produced by Jessica Sanders and Marc Simon in association with the American Film Foundation, focuses on five men convicted of crimes they did not commit, and the difficulty of rejoining society after being exonerated.

“Rikers High” examines the hard lives of 2,000 students behind bars at Island Academy, located at New York’s Rikers Island correctional facility. Docu is produced by Jean-Michael Dissard and helmed by Victor Buhler and Bonnie Strauss.

In addition to producing original fare, “Sho Exposure” has also acquired theatrical releases “Mayor of the Sunset Strip,” “Standing in the Shadows of Motown” and, most recently, “Super Size Me.”
