New York, NY - June 20, 2017 - Premium television network EPIX(R), an MGM company, today announced a roster of all-new original offerings to premiere this year: documentaries Danica and Foreman as well as comedy special Anjelah Johnson: Mahalo & Goodnight. The previously announced documentary, Straight/Curve: Redefining Body Image, will debut on Wednesday, June 21 at 8:00PM ET/PT, 7:00PM CT.

DANICA

Premieres Fall 2017

Danica Patrick has commanded attention with her achievements in professional motorsports, making herself a household name by going against the current and succeeding in a male-dominated world. Now, at 35, this transcendent sports star stands on the cusp of something even bigger than she ever might have imagined growing up as a girl racing go-carts for her dad.

In Danica, the racing superstar reveals herself like never before: as a competitor eagerly preparing for her next race; a woman confidently considering when she wants to start a family; and a budding mogul carefully considering thinking about her next steps. Directed by award-winning journalist and pioneer in sports broadcasting Hannah Storm (Brainstormin Productions), this documentary will take a rare, candid look at an icon, capturing never-before-seen moments on and off the track with Danica Patrick and those closest to her.

Danica is produced by EPIX in conjunction with Brainstormin Productions. The film is edited by Tim Mullen and written by Aaron Cohen. Jackie Decker, Jill Burkhart and Valerie Bishop Pearson are producers; Carmen Belmont serves as line producer and Dom Savio is the director of photography. Danica is executive produced by Hannah Storm, Ross Bernard and Jocelyn Diaz.

FOREMAN

Premieres September 13, 2017 @ 8:00 PM ET

In 1994, at the age of 45, George Foreman completed the greatest comeback in the history of heavyweight boxing. Not only did he reclaim the heavyweight championship crown that was lost in spectacular fashion 20 years earlier to Muhammad Ali, but he went on to complete an unparalleled personal transformation - from reviled street bully to beloved teddy bear. Foreman is the unlikely story of a boxer who struggles with, and later establishes, a sense of purpose on his remarkable journey to achieve the impossible.

Foreman is directed by Chris Perkel (Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives) and executive produced by Gary Cohen (Catching Hell, Requiem for the Big East). The film is produced by Matt McDonald (Catching Hell, Requiem for the Big East) and edited by Ross Hockrow (Gods or Men). Ross Bernard is also an executive producer; Jill Burkhart and Valerie Bishop Pearson serve as producers.

ANJELAH JOHNSON: MAHALO & GOODNIGHT

Premieres September 29, 2017 @ 10:00 PM ET

Filmed at the Hawaii Theater in Honolulu, Hawaii, Anjelah Johnson's fourth stand-up comedy special dishes on awkward massages, home invasions, spiders and being a full-grown child.

Born and raised in San Jose, California and of Mexican and Native American descent, Anjelah Johnson is a sought-after actress and comedian who is best known for her role on the beloved series "MADtv," leaving a memorable legacy with the breakout original character - and internet sensation - Bon Qui Qui. This original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, has been enjoyed by over 65 million people worldwide. Johnson has also appeared in multiple commercials and on film, and guest-starred on shows such as "The Shield," "Ugly Betty," "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and others all while touring with her sold-out stand up comedy shows.

Anjelah Johnson: Mahalo & Goodnight is executive produced by Anjelah Johnson, Dave Rath, Brian Volk-Weiss, Cisco Henson, Ross Bernard, and produced by Valerie Bishop Pearson. The special is directed by Ryan Polito.

In addition to its original documentaries and specials, EPIX will also continue its rollout of original scripted series this year, with the debut of the 10-episode dark comedy Get Shorty (starring Chris O'Dowd and Ray Romano) as well as the season two premieres of its timely, critically-acclaimed returning series: drama Berlin Station and comedy Graves (which garnered a Golden Globe nomination for star Nick Nolte).
