Billed as "the story of a modern-day American revolution," California's history-making Prop 8 snafu, and its triumphant outcome, will be made into an HBO documentary.

NYT has more:

The still-untitled documentary will be completed by the end of the year and make its debut on HBO sometime next year. Michael Lombardo, HBO’s programming president, in a statement called the movie “the story of a modern-day American revolution” and said it was intended to be “the film of record on this landmark case.”

Mr. Cotner, a first-time director, and Mr. White, known for the documentary “Good Ol’ Freda,” about the woman who served as secretary to the Beatles, gained access to the Proposition 8 legal team - led by the liberal David Boies and conservative Theodore B. Olson - through the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the nonprofit group that brought the challenge.

The documentary will also focus on the plantiffs in the case, Berkeley couple Sandy Stier and Kristin Perry and newlyweds Jeff Zarrillo and Paul Katami.

Mere days before San Francisco Gay Pride, if you recall, the Supreme Court declined to rule on the case, which swiftly ended the voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage in the great state of California.
