STARZ ACQUIRES INVESTIGATIVE DOCUMENTARY "WHITE BOY" ABOUT TEEN FBI INFORMANT RICHARD WERSHE, JR.

Santa Monica, Calif. - September 12, 2018 - Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), today announced it has acquired the documentary White Boy, based on the story of 17-year-old Richard Wershe, Jr. who allegedly ran a vicious, sophisticated underground cocaine operation throughout inner-city Detroit. Arrested as a teen and sentenced to life without parole, Wershe remains imprisoned 30 years later and is the subject of the Sony feature film White Boy Rick starring Matthew McConaughey.

Directed by Shawn Rech, the documentary White Boy follows filmmakers as they investigate the subject of 1980's crime folklore - interviewing journalists, police, FBI agents and hit men - to set the record straight on the urban legend known as "White Boy Rick." White Boy will premiere on STARZ in spring 2019.

Matt Burke at Submarine Entertainment negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.

White Boy Rick made its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 7 and opens in U.S. theaters on Sept. 14. Starz will also premiere the feature film White Boy Rick in summer 2019 on STARZ.
