“Addict Nation,” a limited documentary series, will follow five people who are living with an addiction.

“The Whitest Kids U Know,” is an comedy series in a mockumentary style.

“Best Documentaries” is an improvisational comedy series that parodies self-important documentaries.

The documentary films in production include:

“Came So Far From Beauty,” which profiles Leonard Cohen; “Follow My Voice,” about a student at Harvey Milk High School; “Heaven Come Down,” about a Pentecostal sect; and “An Ordinary Family,” about the impact of globalization on an Argentinean family.
