Showtime has acquired the rights to the U.S. television premiere of the documentary "Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out," the cable network said Thursday.

Marina Zenovich, who also directed the documentary "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired," also directed "Odd Man Out."

The new film follows up on "Wanted and Desired," will recount the controversial director's 2009 arrest at the Zurich Film Festival, exploring "the bizarre clash of politics, celebrity justice and the media as [Zenovich] sheds new light on the infamous saga of Polanski's sexual abuse case and his escape from Swiss house arrest," according to Showtime.

"Odd Man Out" will premiere on Showtime next year. Zenovich is also directing the documentary "Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic," also slated to air in 2013.
