About Under the Gun
Under the Gun, a documentary that originally premiered on EPIX(R) in May 2016, examines the events and individuals who have kept the gun debate fierce and the progress slow, even as gun deaths and mass shootings continue to increase. Under the Gun is presented through the lenses of families impacted by the mass shootings in Newtown, Aurora, Isla Vista and Tucson, as well as those who experience daily gun violence in Chicago.
Said Variety about the documentary: "Cutting through political talking points to focus on facts and firsthand accounts, Under the Gun is an essential primer on the rise of gun violence in the U.S."

Scully, Michael Walrath and Michelle Walrath are the executive producers. Olivia Ahnemann, Joshua Kunau, Kristin Lazure and Soechtig are the producers. The screenplay is by Mark Monroe, Brian Lazarte and Soechtig. The director of photography is Josh Salzman, the editor is Brian Lazarte and music is by Brian Tyler. Katie Couric is the narrator.
