Edge West is thrilled to announce that two of its documentary films, Born to Rage and Vanished From Alcatraz, which aired on National Geographic Channel, are being considered for seven Primetime Emmy Awards.

Born To Rage, hosted by Henry Rollins, investigates the controversial question of whether some people are predisposed to violence because of a DNA glitch dubbed the Warrior Gene.  This thought-provoking film attracted much attention when it was released. Dr. Phil did an entire hour based around our show.

Vanished From Alcatraz is a brand new investigation of America’s most famous prison escape. After forty years of uncertainty, we finally answer the biggest question of all – did the three inmates survive their daring escape attempt from Alcatraz Island? The show unveils brand new evidence that clearly indicates the daring trio got off Alcatraz and escaped to freedom.
