With many other exciting projects in the pipeline, Legendary Chairman and CEO Thomas Tull will also finance and produce K-9, a documentary about specialty trained military and law enforcement dogs. The project will be directed by 10-time Emmy winners Jonathan Hock (Fastball, Through the Fire) and Greg Kohs (The Great Alone).
K-9 will explore the relationship between law enforcement dogs and their human handlers. The documentary will tell the story of Cairo, the US Navy SEAL dog who was part of the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, and Credo, the police dog who took a bullet to save his partner, as well as many other canine heroes.
Hock had the following to say about the project:
“In the action and sports documentaries I’ve directed, the key for me has always been to unlock the larger meaning behind the action by illuminating the humanity of the characters. With half of our characters in this film being dogs, that’s a challenge that has been doubled for us. But we’ve discovered that the depth of true emotion in these amazing animals – the love, courage and sacrifice that we hold as the most noble attributes of human beings – are expressed with unmistakable power. ‘K-9’ is an action-adventure, a love story and a war story all rolled into one.”
