Paramount-owned UK broadcaster Channel 5 has acquired exclusive local rights to Stormy, the US documentary about actress and porn star Stormy Daniels.

Hailing from Imagine Documentaries and produced by Sarah Gibson and Erin Lee Carr, who were behind the documentary Britney vs Spears, the film made its US debut on Peacock in March. Stormy is distributed internationally by Blue Ant Studios.

Daniels became a household name when, in 2018, news broke about a secret payment she had received from former US president Donald Trump.

The film offers an intimate look behind the scenes as she navigates her roles as a mother, an artist, and an advocate striving to reinvent herself while contending with the explosive revelation that shook her life five years ago.

Stormy is executive produced by Judd Apatow of Apatow Productions, alongside Sara Bernstein and Meredith Kaulfers from Imagine Documentaries. Emelia Brown also serves as producer.

Damian O’Hara, acquisitions manager at Channel 5 said: “Bringing UK viewers the first broadcast of Stormy builds on Channel 5’s strong tradition of offering audiences topical and compelling factual content. The unique access that the team behind the documentary gained to help tell Stormy’s story makes it a timely and thought-provoking watch.”
