Sundance Channel has licensed exclusive US television rights to Flying: Confessions Of A Free Woman, Jennifer Fox' six-hour exploration of womanhood.

The documentary will be presented as a special screening at the Sundance Film Festival, which begins on Jan 18, and Sundance Channel will air it as a six-part series in 2008.

Flying: Confessions Of A Free Woman interweaves aspects of Fox's own life - from the age of 42 to 45 - with the lives of diverse women from around the globe.

Sundance Channel senior vice president of acquisitions, programme planning and scheduling Christian Vesper negotiated the deal with Fox.

Flying: Confessions Of A Free Woman is an Easy Films presentation in association with Zohe Film Productions. Claus Ladegaard and Fox produced.

Fox's credits include the 10-hour documentary series An American Love Story, which aired on PBS, as well as Beirut: The Last Home Movie, which won the grand prize for best documentary film at Sundance 1988.
