HBO has acquired the rights to “Teenage Paparazzo,” the documentary directed by “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier which premiered earlier this year at Sundance.
The plot turns the camera on 14-year-old celebrity paparazzo photographer Austin Visschedyk, one who had been shooting Grenier himself, becoming a cinematic conversation on celebrity influence on entertainment and youth culture. It includes interviews with other actors and celebs like Paris Hilton, Matt Damon, Eva Longoria, Alec Baldwin and Whoopi Goldberg; additionally, bloggers, fans, critics, historians and other weigh in, as Grenier gets to know Visschedyk and his family.
This is the second documentary helmed by Grenier that the cable network has picked up: the 33-year-old actor’s “Shot in the Dark,” a highly personal film, was aired in 2007.
