Chicken People

CHICKEN PEOPLE, a documentary about the fascinating world of competitive chickens and the people who love them, has been acquired by Samuel Goldwyn Films from CMT for release in theaters in late Summer.

CHICKEN PEOPLE directed by Emmy-Nominated Nicole Lucas Haimes, and produced by Emmy Award Winner Motto Pictures, received its world premiere at the 2016 South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas and will continue its film festival run leading up to the theatrical release in late summer followed by an October On Demand and Digital release before premiering on CMT later this year. Having launched a dedicated documentary division in 2014, this marks the first theatrical run for a CMT Original doc.

In a world where a bent feather can mean a broken dream, CHICKEN PEOPLE is a real-life “Best in Show,” about chickens. Every November exotic poultry breeders from across America proceed to Columbus with the goal of winning the title of Grand Champion at the Ohio National Poultry Show. The film follows the struggles and triumphs of the men, women and the chickens they love, examining the daily lives of the breeders and how they’re shaped by their quest for perfect fowl. Subjects Brian Knox, Brian Caraker and Shari McCollough struggle to overcome life’s obstacles, not least of which is a nationwide outbreak of the Avian Flu. Can this put a stop to their dream of “Grand Champion of Show?”
