Netflix to debut Ed Norton’s Man

NetflixBuilding4Streaming service Netflix will debut an Edward Norton-produced documentary about a man that immerses himself in masculinity ahead of becoming a dad.

My Own Man will launch on Netflix on March 6 in all operating territories,having already launched with success as the Tribeca Film Festival.

The doc follows director and father-to-be David Sampliner as he undertakes warrior weekends, vocal lessons and hunts in an attempt to “man up” for his unborn child before realising his issues are with his own father.

Norton (Fight Club), who executive produces, appears in the doc. He said: “You rarely see an artist document their own personal experience with such candour and simultaneously offer such deep insights into the very universal struggle to communicate within a family.”

Norton also produced Sampliner’s 2004 film Dirty Work.
