Sundance Channel to Produce The War Room +15, a Look at the 2008 Presidential Campaign from the Makers of the Academy Award(R)-Nominated Documentary The War Room

Chris Hegedus, D A Pennebaker, R.J. Cutler, Wendy Ettinger, Frazer Pennebaker to Explore Changes To Political Landscape Since Their Landmark Film About The 1992 Clinton Campaign

New Documentary Scheduled To Premiere In October 2008

NEW YORK, April 2, 2008 -- Sundance Channel will present The War Room +15, a new documentary directed by Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker, who depicted the inner workings of Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign in their Academy Award(R)-nominated documentary The War Room. The War Room +15 will feature some of The War Room's main characters as well as a crop of new politicos and take an in-depth look at how the political process and media culture have changed since the 1992 presidential election. Sundance Channel will premiere The War Room +15 in October 2008.

The War Room +15 is produced by R.J. Cutler, Wendy Ettinger and Frazer Pennebaker and is overseen for Sundance Channel by Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development Lynne Kirby and Director, Original Programming and Development Samuel J. Paul.

Released in 1993, The War Room captured the reinvention of modern campaigning at the hands of Bill Clinton's election team, a nimble group led by the "Rajin' Cajun" James Carville and the articulate George Stephanopoulos. In The War Room +15 the filmmakers will head into the trenches of the 2008 election year and connect with some of The War Room's main characters who remain active in the political arena, be it behind-the-scenes or in the media. They will also introduce a new cast of characters as well: men and women who came after Carville and Stephanopoulos, and who are in charge of honing the strategies and fielding the curve balls that are part of any presidential bid.

Production on The War Room +15 has begun and will continue into the summer. Among The War Room veterans on tap for the new film are James Carville, the political consultant and commentator; Paul Begala, the political consultant and commentator who served in the Clinton administration as counselor to the president; and Stan Greenberg, a leading Democratic pollster and political strategist who has advised the campaigns of Bill Clinton, Al Gore and John Kerry.

Under the creative direction of Robert Redford, Sundance Channel is the television destination for independent-minded viewers seeking something different. Bold, uncompromising and irreverent, Sundance Channel offers audiences a diverse and engaging selection of films, documentaries, and original programs, all unedited and commercial free.
