Discovery Channel Producing ‘Insta-mentary’ on Osama Bin Laden’s Death

Even as Hollywood movie studios scramble to put together feature films inspired by yesterday's takedown of Osama bin Laden, Discovery Channel is already working on an "insta-mentary" about the dramatic execution of the terrorist icon. Vulture has learned that the network is assembling an hour-long film, tentatively dubbed Killing bin Laden, that will bring to life the events surrounding the special-forces
operation. "We want to bring as much added context and in-depth historical insight to the story as we can," Discovery president and general manager Clark Bunting told us just a few minutes ago. Look for the film to debut Sunday, May 15 at 10 p.m.
