Andre the Giant Documentary Sets Record For HBO

According to The Hollywood Reporter,  the HBO documentary “Andre the Giant”, which premiered back in April of this year, became the most-watched documentary in HBO Sports history with nearly 7 million viewers across the network’s linear and digital platforms.

The success of the documentary has lead to the film’s creator Bill Simmons inking a new deal with HBO, and he offered the following comment on his future with the Network:

“I’m thrilled to keep going with the HBO family and can’t wait to get started on a couple of the more ambitious projects we’ve hatched. I witnessed it firsthand with our Andre doc — when you create something unique for HBO, they’ve built so much trust and equity in their audience over the years that it’s always going to be seen. Every single time. If it’s good and it’s on HBO, it will stand out. Even though we have more entertainment choices than ever right now, HBO still cuts through in an incredibly precise, almost unassailable way — and they work better with creatives than anyone, period. I am lucky to work with them and I know it.”
