HBO has acquired the U.S. TV rights to the Adrian Grenier-directed documentary Teenage Paparazzo.
The film chronicles the relationship between Grenier and 14-year-old paparazzo Austin Visschedyk. Grenier turns the cameras on the teenager to document Visschedyk's life. But the project becomes a personal challenge for Grenier, star of HBO's Entourage, as he is forced to take responsibility for his influence on his subject's life.
The film, which will debut in the fall, features interviews with psychologists and historians familiar with paparazzi and the celebrity culture they serve as well as critics, fans, bloggers, publishers and tabloid writers.
Celebrities including Matt Damon, Eva Longoria, Paris Hilton, Alec Baldwin and Whoopi Goldberg also are interviewed in the film.
