Why ‘Shawn Mendes’ Documentary ‘Icarus’ Will Be a Best Documentary of the Summer 2017 Election

The premiere of “Icaruses” will mark the first time in the history of cable television that a documentary will receive the same award for best documentary of the summer.

The documentary is being directed by Michael Gerson, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for “Drones.”

The Oscar for best short documentary will be awarded to “The Blacklist,” a 2016 drama about the assassination of a black president that won the Emmy Award for outstanding short documentary.

“ICarus” will be released to viewers on Sept. 30.

The show premiered on Aug. 23, 2016, and was picked up by FX in 2017.

“We are very excited to be working with Michael G. to present a new short film about the 2016 election,” said FX Networks Chairman Kevin Reilly.

“Shawn is a gifted filmmaker who has made the perfect gift for our network.

He brings his unique vision to his first-ever feature-length doc.

I can’t wait to see what he will create for our audience.”

“I have no doubt that ‘Ikarus’ will be an Emmy-winning documentary for years to come,” said Jeff Bewkes, president and CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

“It is the most compelling, challenging, and insightful documentary about the election I have ever seen.

Ikarus is a remarkable and inspiring filmmaker, and I am thrilled to be a part of his next project.”

“Shootout,” the latest episode of HBO’s “Shark Tank,” is also set to be nominated for best feature documentary.

The series stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a young entrepreneur in Los Angeles, who has the opportunity to join a prestigious board of directors that includes some of Hollywood’s biggest names.

But after years of struggling to raise capital and becoming a successful startup, Leonardo’s plan unravels when he accidentally creates a viral marketing campaign that quickly reaches the top of the news cycle.

“The idea that you can go from a young guy who doesn’t know much about startups to an entrepreneur with a massive following and an incredibly lucrative venture is something we’ve never seen,” said HBO programming president Mike Hopkins.

“As a company, we want to make sure that we’re giving our fans and our advertisers the best opportunities to watch the best documentaries on our platform.

We’re going to give it our all and do everything we can to make this movie the best documentary possible.”

“The Shark Tank” series premieres Sept. 29 at 10 p.m.

ET on HBO.

“Blacklist” premieres on Oct. 10 at 10:30 p.t.

The Emmy nominations will be announced at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour on Monday, March 7, 2018.

“MTV News Live,” hosted by Chris Hayes, will be held at 10 a.m., Sept. 22, at ESPN’s studio in Pasadena, Calif.
