Days before its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, HBO bought television rights to Chris Moukarbel and Valerie Veatch’s “Me at the Zoo,” a film about Internet celebrity told through the story of Chris Crocker. The film will debut on HBO on June 25, 2012.
Crocker catapulted to fame in 2007 after he asked the world to “Leave Britney Alone!” in response to Spears’ tough times in the media spotlight (e.g. the head-shaving incident). When this happened, Crocker had already been developing a modest loyal fan base for his performative videos.
Indiewire spoke to the directing team and Crocker earlier this year at Sundance.
