VANCOUVER, Nov. 29, 2018 /CNW/ - Network Media Group Inc. (TSX: NTE.V) (OTCMKTS: NMGGF) and Network Entertainment Inc. ("Network" or "the Company") founder and Chief Executive Officer, Derik Murray, is pleased to announce the U.S. digital release of Network's full feature length documentary I Am Paul Walker on Friday, November 30.
"The full length documentary film will now be available for purchase, rental and viewing throughout the U.S. on multiple platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Turner Classic Movies, and Barnes & Noble," says Executive Producer Derik Murray. "We are looking forward to a successful launch and wide-reaching fan engagement over the holidays and beyond."
This digital release is the first time the full feature length documentary will be available for fans to view and they can now own or rent on Digital Download platforms across the U.S. on November 30, and/or purchase the DVD of the film, available on December 4.
I Am Paul Walker made its U.S. television premiere on Paramount Network earlier this year on August 11.
"We are thrilled that Paul's story will be shared even further with his fans – those he was always very grateful to," said Caleb Walker. "The timing of the documentary's digital launch on November 30, the fifth anniversary of Paul's passing, is a fitting tribute to his legacy."
The film, directed by Adrian Buitenhuis, explores the life and legacy of actor Paul Walker, the Southern California native who cut his teeth as a child actor before breaking out in the blockbuster Fast & Furious movie franchise. Featuring interviews with those who knew Paul best both professionally and personally, along with an extensive personal archive of never-before-seen candid video and still photographs provided by family and friends of the late actor, I Am Paul Walker explores Paul's private side in tandem with the highlights of his highly successful film career. His devotion to his family, his passion for surfing and auto racing, his commitment to marine biology and sharks, his dedication to humanitarian work through his NGO, Reach Out Worldwide, and his love for his family define the character of the man who starred in Fast & Furious, one of the most wildly successful film franchises of all time.
