LOS ANGELES: BoPaul Media Worldwide has been named international distributor of the 1985 NBC miniseries Mussolini: The Untold Story, which stars Oscar winner George C. Scott in the title role.
The estate of the late television producer Raymond Katz handed off the rights to the seven-hour series, which has not been seen on foreign television in the past two decades. The miniseries was a Katz/Gallin production in association with Bernard Sofronski.
Based on a story written by Benito Mussolini’s son, the miniseries chronicled the Italian dictator’s rise to power, as well as his personal and family life. Virginia Madsen and Robert Downey Jr. also starred.
