STOP AT NOTHING: THE LANCE ARMSTRONG STORY sold to BBC UK

The ABC Commercial feature documentary, STOP AT NOTHING: THE LANCE ARMSTRONG STORY, has been sold to BBC UK and will be broadcast on 6 July in the BBC Four Storyville documentary strand.

‘This is a formidable piece of investigative journalism that gets to the darkest places in contemporary world sport and money. Armstrong ruled this world without scruple and by inspiring fear. I loved the film’, said Nick Fraser, Commissioning Editor, Storyville.

‘With the Tour de France starting in the UK this year, we hope that UK cycling fans enjoy this fascinating exploration of the man whose fame and success was centred around this iconic sporting event – which is now associated with his dramatic fall from grace’, said Sharon Ramsay-Luck, Head of Sales and Business Development, ABC Commercial.

The film recently screened in the official selection of the 2014 Sheffield Doc/Fest and London’s East End Film Festival. It had a theatrical screening in London on 22 June and another one is scheduled for 3 July, with Picturehouse Cinemas in the UK.

Co-produced with Passion Pictures, the producers of Academy Award winning films, One Day in September and Searching for Sugar Man, the documentary is an intimate but explosive portrait of Lance Armstrong, a man who enriched himself by cheating his fans, his sport and the truth. The film reveals new details about the scandal – with insights from the former friends whose lives and careers he destroyed.

STOP AT NOTHING: THE LANCE ARMSTRONG STORY is an ABC Commercial/Passion Pictures production from BAFTA Award winning director Alex Holmes (Dunkirk, House of Saddam); Producers are Quentin McDermott (The World According to Lance) and Jessica Ludgrove (Fire in Babylon); Executive Producers include John Battsek (One Day in September, Searching for Sugar Man) and Phil Craig (The Flight that Fought Back, Targeting Bin Laden).

ABC Commercial holds worldwide distribution rights to the program.
