Greenwich Entertainment has acquired the North American rights to Alice Gu’s documentary, “The Donut King.” A theatrical release is planned for later this year.
“The Donut King” tells the story of Ted Ngoy, a Cambodian refugee who arrived in Los Angeles in 1975 and changed everything we know about America’s favorite pastry, the donut.
While building a multi-million-dollar empire that effectively kept Dunkin’ Donuts out of Southern California for decades, Ngoy became a hero of the Cambodian community by sponsoring hundreds of visas for incoming refugees.
