Netflix Acquires 3D Printing Documentary ‘Print the Legend’

26 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has acquired exclusive rights to “Print The Legend,” a documentary about the nascent American 3D printing industry that premiered at SXSW this month.

The film explores the people and companies racing to deliver consumer 3D printing — a potentially disruptive and controversial technology that enables reproduction of everything from guns to human organs.

Print the Legend” will premiere on Netflix in 2014 in all territories where Netflix is available. The docu won the 2014 SXSW Film Festival’s special jury recognition award for editing and storytelling in the documentary feature category.

Other documentaries the streamer has acquired include “The Square,” an Oscar-nominated film about political unrest in Egypt; “The Short Game,” about kid golfers; Mitt Romney docu “Mitt”; and “The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life,” about pianist and Holocaust survivor Alice Herz-Sommer, which won the Oscar this year for documentary short.

TV Review: ‘Lindsay’

9 March 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Own has sought to surround “Lindsay” – its docu-series devoted to Lindsay Lohan – with a patina of seriousness and quality, from touting the involvement of director Amy Rice (“By The People: The Election of Barack Obama”) to preceding it with a showcase in which the channel’s namesake interviews Russell Brand about addiction. But seriously, who’s fooling whom? In the best Hollywood tradition, the Oprah Winfrey-Discovery network and the tabloid-plagued actress are using each other, the irony being that if Lohan stays on the straight and narrow, she’ll yield a show as boring as Sunday’s not-screened-in-advance premiere.

Frankly, one appreciates Lohan’s efforts to stay clean and sober. But it shouldn’t come as a newsflash to anyone – starting with Oprah – that the dramatic needs of reality TV and straightening out her life are mutually exclusive.

The show picks up last August, right after Lohan has finished her sixth stint in rehab. »

Hot TV Trailer: Own’s First Look At ‘Lindsay’ Docu-Series

5 March 2014 7:33 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Lindsay is premiering this Sunday at 10 Pm, and Own has unveiled the 2-minute promo  that TV critics attending Winter TV Press Tour 2014 got to see in January. Last July, Oprah Winfrey’s Own network scored a big one when it signed train-wreck Lindsay Lohan to an eight-episode docu-series following her as she tried to stay sober and re-launch her career after a court-ordered rehab stint; it was part of a deal that also included Lohan’s post-rehab interview special on Oprah’s Next Chapter. The docu-series, directed by filmmaker Amy Rice (By The People: The Election of Barack Obama ), taped in August. “There’s nothing left in having a drink for me. There’s no party I haven’t gone to, nobody I haven’t hung out with, no situation I haven’t been exposed to,” 27-year-old Lohan tells the camera as she swans here and there. “I don’t »

Watch: The Trailer for Own's Lindsay Lohan Docuseries Shows a Very Bumpy Road to Recovery

5 March 2014 6:39 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Documentarian Amy Rice ("By the People: The Election of Barack Obama") was the lucky (?) filmmaker chosen to attempt to shoot Lindsay Lohan's recovery for the docuseries "Lindsay," premiering this Sunday, March 9th at 10pm on Oprah Winfrey's Own. Winfrey interviewed the troubled starlet after her latest stint in rehab in August of last year, which lead to the two agreeing to make the eight-part series documenting Lohan's experiences as she moves back to New York and tries to maintain her sobriety. The trailer for the series, below, suggests that Lohan isn't anywhere near ready to have this process put on the screen -- halfway through, Rice appears to note that they were supposed to film that day, but were being kept out of the actress' apartment by her sober coach. "This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen," Winfrey says while heading to meet with Lohan »
