CBC TELEVISION ENCORE PRESENTATION OF DOCUMENTARY ON THE EARLY SEXUALIZATION OF GIRLS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fredericton, October 2, 2012 - CBC Television is set to rebroadcast SEXT UP KIDS later this month on its flagship documentary program Doc Zone. The encore presentation of this frightening but timely documentary on the hyper-sexualization of girls will take place on Thursday, October 11th, 2012 at 9:00pm. Written and directed by Maureen Palmer and produced by Rick LeGuerrier and Timothy M. Hogan of New Brunswick-based Dream Street Pictures, the one hour documentary looks at how the internet and popular culture are pressuring kids to be “sexy” before they even know what sexy is. The doc brought in some of last season’s best ratings when it first aired on Doc Zone. It has also garnered lots of interest around the world.
Dream Street has inked deals with a number of partners to distribute SEXT UP KIDS globally. Beyond Distribution, headquartered in Sydney, Australia, will lead the charge on international broadcast sales starting this month in Cannes at MIPCOM. Media Education Foundation will handle the US and world educational markets, while CBC Learning will take care of educational sales in Canada. Dream Street has begun pre-production on its latest documentary, also for Doc Zone, which takes a thought-provoking worldview of the future of zoos.
