HBO Original Documentary WILD WILD SPACE Debuts July 17

· The HBO Original documentary WILD WILD SPACE, directed by Oscar(R)-winning filmmaker Ross Kauffman ("Born into Brothels"), debuts WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 (9:00 p.m-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO and will be available to stream on Max.

· Synopsis: WILD WILD SPACE chronicles the modern-day, celestial land grab happening above our heads. It's a fast paced, high-stakes race of epic proportions in which companies compete to blast satellite-carrying rockets into low earth orbit. From exhilarating triumphs to gut-wrenching setbacks, we witness the fierce competition to tackle humanity's next great frontier. However, beneath the shiny veneer of progress is the dark side of capitalism's insatiable appetite for profit and the far-reaching reverberations of a world controlled from the skies.

Inspired by the New York Times best-selling book "When the Heavens Went on Sale" by esteemed technology and space journalist Ashlee Vance, WILD WILD SPACE follows three rocket and satellite companies - Astra Space, Rocket Lab, and Planet Labs - and the quests of their idiosyncratic founders to conquer the burgeoning space industry. Following the roller coaster journey for a piece of this unchartered territory, the film details the multi-faceted uses of satellites, from planet-saving, environmental imaging to "big brother" government scrutiny and military espionage, exploring the ethics of technological advances. With billions of dollars at stake, the world's privacy in the balance, and the ramifications of space debris dangerously cluttering earth's low orbit, the documentary reveals how satellites now control the fabric of our modern world, and posits that whoever controls space, may very well control the future of humanity.

· Featured Participants: Chris Kemp, co-founder/CEO of Astra Space; Ashlee Vance, tech journalist and author; Jonathan McDowell, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics; Peter Beck, founder and CEO of Rocket Lab; Will Marshall, co-founder and CEO of Planet Labs; Robbie Schingler, co-founder and chief strategy officer (CSO) of Planet Labs; Pete Worden, Brigadier General, U.S. Air Force, retired; Jessy Kate Schingler, director of Open Lunar; Dr. Bhavya Lal, technology and policy at NASA; Allison Puccinia, imagery analyst at Armillary Services; Carissa Christensen, CEO of BryceTech.

· Credits: HBO Documentary Films presents WILD WILD SPACE, a Zero Point Zero Production in association with Amblin Documentaries and Hyperobject Industries. Directed by Ross Kauffman; produced by Jaye Callahan, Ashlee Vance, Adam McKay, Todd Schulman, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Christopher Collins, Lydia Tenaglia, and Craig H. Shepherd; executive produced by John Khoury, Maiken Baird, and Rachel Crane; For HBO: executive producers, Nancy Abraham, Lisa Heller, and Tina Nguyen.
