In a press release by Peacock, the people associated with the docuseries stated:
“Adding a story like Justina’s to the outstanding library of documentaries on Peacock is something we couldn’t be more proud of,” says Stephanie Steele SVP, Unscripted Current Production NBCUniversal Television, and Streaming. “With clashing opinions about what’s best for a child, The Battle for Justina Pelletier offers a compelling account of a committed family, those who were inspired to jump into action, and the resilient girl at the heart of it all. Audiences are sure to be engrossed and left deciding for themselves which side they agree with.”
“When our team started this project three years ago, we wondered how one event could be interpreted two entirely different ways. As we investigated, we found there were few easy answers,” said Director David Metzler. “What drove us forward was the very brave girl at the center of it and to make sure Justina’s story gets told and remembered.”
