In a new documentary Pennywise: The Story of IT, filmmakers Christopher Griffiths and John Campopiano profile the famed 1990s made for television hit mini-series..
There are exclusive interviews with the cast included in the documentary.
Pennywise: The Story of IT will premiere exclusively on horror streaming service Screambox on July 26. The movie will also be available On Demand.
