Premium network Epix has acquired the North American rights to the Sundance documentary “Under the Gun.” Katie Couric served as one of the executive producers and narrates the film, which aims to create a balanced view on gun control in the United States. Couric is joined by writer-director Stephanie Soechtig.

“During this Presidential election year, we at Epix want to contribute to the national dialogue on the major issues affecting our country today,” said Epix CEO and President Mark S. Greenberg in an official statement. “I can think of no more pressing subject than gun violence, and I am extremely proud to bring ‘Under the Gun’ to Epix viewers. The gun debate, with its core issues of gun rights and gun violence, is one of the most polarizing taking place in our society today. In ‘Under the Gun,’ Katie and Stephanie bring their dynamic talent and perspective to this complex, multi-faceted issue and present honest, unbiased, and thoughtful commentary to this subject that has real life or death consequences.”

“Under the Gun” will air on Epix and its platforms on May 14 at 8 p.m. Lionsgate will release the film in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles.
