HBO Documentaries Premieres ‘The Case Against 8’ Monday, June 23

The riveting documentary THE CASE AGAINST 8 takes an in-depth look at the historic federal lawsuit filed in an effort to overturn Prop 8, California’s discriminatory ban on same-sex marriage. Shooting over five years, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the powerhouse legal team of David Boies and Ted Olson and the four plaintiffs in the suit, directors and producers Ben Cotner and Ryan White (“Good Ol’ Freda,” “Pelada”) have created a powerful emotional account of the journey that took the fight for marriage equality all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The timely film debuts MONDAY, JUNE 23 (9:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, coinciding with the first anniversary of the two landmark Supreme Court rulings that restored marriage equality to California and ended federal discrimination against gay couples under the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on June 26, 2013.
