Showtime will release the premiere episode of its new docu-series OUTCRY for free online sampling, on streaming platforms and on demand beginning at midnight on Sunday, July 5.
The five-part investigative documentary series, directed and produced by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Pat Kondelis, examines the gripping story of high school football star Greg Kelley’s controversial conviction for child molestation and the quest for truth and justice that followed in the wake of his sentencing. The first installment will be available on YouTube, as well as across multiple television and streaming providers’ devices, websites, applications and authenticated online services and their free On Demand channels.
Outcry will officially premiere on Showtime on Sunday, July 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. New episodes will debut every Sunday through August 2, while the entire series will release for on-demand streaming or download on the SHOWTIME and SHOWTIME ANYTIMEapps and partner on-demand platforms July 5.
Greg Kelley had incredible momentum going into his senior year of high school in Leander, Texas, but that came to a sudden halt in the summer of 2013 when he was arrested and later convicted of super aggravated sexual assault of a four-year-old boy. After he was sentenced to 25 years in state prison without the possibility of parole, a groundswell of support emerged, calling into question the investigation, the prosecution’s tactics and, ultimately, the validity of the conviction. OUTCRY captures a divided community over a seven-year journey, following the principal participants of the appeal process as they work in pursuit of justice.
OUTCRY is produced and directed in association with Kondelis and his Emmy Award-winning film and television production team at Bat Bridge Entertainment.
