Speak Up, the first original documentary from Cartoon Network, will debut on Sunday in the US on March 18th at 5:30 pm with a repeat presentation at 8 pm.

The half-hour film tackles the tough and timely topic of bullying and grew out of the network’s social initiative Stop Bullying: Speak Up.

Before, during and after the film, bullying expert Rosalind Wiseman will be on-hand to provide further explanation and information for viewers online at www.StopBullyingSpeakUp.com. As well, the film will also be posted in its entirety on the website and across multiple platforms free of charge, including Comcast Xfinity, Facebook, iTunes, Xbox360+Kinect and YouTube.com for up to two weeks after the broadcast premiere.

Speak Up is directed by Lee Hoffman (Dateline NBC), executive produced by Hoffman and Cartoon Network chief content officer Rob Sorcher, and produced by Rebecca Miller.
