BBC3 Commissions Pistorius Documentary

BBC3 has commissioned a new documentary on the killing of model Reeva Steenkamp, who was allegedly shot by her boyfriend, Oscar Pistorius.
Mentorn Media has been named to helm the 60 minute documentary.
Pistorius burst into the limelight after winning two Gold medals and a Silver at the Paralympic Games in London.
He is accused of murder but pleaded not guilty.
The documentary has been commissioned by Fiona Campbell of the BBC.
The executive producer for Mentorn is Steve Anderson. The producer/director is Nick London and associate producer is Shekhar Bhatia. The presenter is Rick Edwards, who recently made his debut fronting BBC3’s Free Speech and who presented Paralympics coverage for Channel 4.
Zai Bennett, Controller, BBC Three, said: "BBC3 is never afraid to tackle current affairs and we are committed to showing bold, thought-provoking programmes for 16-34s. Mentorn will be producing this programme at incredible speed, and together with presenter Rick Edwards, I’m sure they will deliver a documentary that will bring a new angle to this ever developing news story."
Steve Anderson said: "The story of Oscar Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp has captured everyone’s attention. It is hugely important and Mentorn has the expertise to deliver it quickly to BBC3."
The programme will be pre-sold by Passion Distribution.
