FX, the flagship channel of FX Networks, has acquired its first feature documentary “AKA Roe” which puts the spotlight on the real-life Norma McCorvey who was known as “Jane Roe” in the historic Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court case.
The film follows the story of McCorvey in the landmark ruling on abortion rights. The documentary will feature her final series of interviews prior to her death and reveals the truth behind her journey from pro-choice to pro-life and beyond – in what she calls her “deathbed confession.”
“AKA Jane Roe” premieres May 22 on FX and will be available the following day on Hulu.
