MercuryMedia Takes On 9/11 Doc


LONDON, June 13: MercuryMedia is continuing its acquisitions drive, picking up the rights to the 48-minute special 9/11: Press For Truth from New York-based DTT Documentaries.

The film tells the story of four 9/11 widows known as “The Jersey Girls” who fought for the official investigation into the attacks. The women have been in the news again recently following controversial remarks about them by right-wing commentator Anne Coulter.

“This is a great 9/11 documentary,” said Jason McGeown, the marketing and acquisitions Manager at Mercury. “There are lots of questions to be answered by the American government and this film raises them in a responsible and level-headed manner. Not only is this a valuable addition to the catalogue, it also increases the 9/11 programming that we can offer broadcasters. With Loose Change 2 now the most downloaded film in history, accumulating 6 million online views, and CTVC’s Victim 0001, which focuses on Father Mychal Judge, the NY Fire Department Chaplain who died in the attacks, we can give the networks some real choice for the fifth anniversary of the 2001 tragedy.”
