BBC1 Acquires Usain Bolt Documentary

Titled Usain Bolt: The Fastest Man Alive, the two-part 2-hour long documentary centered on the Olympic and World 100 meter record holder, has been picked up by BBC1.

Director Gael Leiblang has been following Bolt around over the last year (and will continue to do so), filming him exclusively as he prepares for the London 2012 Olympics, intimately in his home environment with his relatives, friends and coach (part 1, available in early 2012), as well as the lead up to the 2012 Olympics, as Bolt prepares for the games, and eventually participates in them (part 2, available immediately after the 2012 Olympics).
