Sundance plans politics marathon

NEW YORK, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- Sundance Channel is planning two politically themed programming marathons before Election Day, channel executives announced Thursday.

On Sunday, the cable channel will air all four episodes of "Tanner on Tanner," the Robert Altman-Garry Trudeau series starring Cynthia Nixon and Michael Murphy. On Monday, Sundance Channel will present four documentaries in prime time -- including filmmaker Robert Greenwald's documentary "Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War."

The Altman-Trudeau collaboration comes 16 years after the Oscar-nominated director and the Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of "Doonesbury" wrote and produced "Tanner '88."

In addition to "Uncovered," the election eve marathon will also feature "Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election" -- a documentary that examines the controversial outcome of the 2000 presidential vote in Florida.

The Monday marathon will also include the TV premieres of the documentaries "Unconstitutional: The War on Our Civil Liberties" and "Bush's Brain."
