Boat Rocker Rights Showcasing Factual, Children’s & More at MIPCOM


Boat Rocker Rights’ MIPCOM lineup is chockfull of factual titles such as Late Nite Eats, as well as kids’ shows like The Strange Chores and the comedy Cavendish.

In the first two seasons of Late Nite Eats, viewers look on as Chef Jordan Andino explores the late-night food scene. He visits restaurants, food stalls and hole-in-the-wall eateries to see what is revolutionizing the space.

Also in the factual realm, Vintage Tech Hunters reveals the retro-tech treasures that can be found stowed away in attics and basements. In the show, retro collectors search for rare and obscure technology. Produced by Boat Rocker’s Crooked Horse, the series “is a fun, tech-focused transactional show that will no doubt appeal to an international audience,” says Jon Rutherford, the president of Boat Rocker Rights.

You’re Called What? investigates a spread of animals with odd names and offers insight into their behaviors. Currently in production on its second season, History in the Making looks at craftsmen around the world who have been using the same methods for decades, centuries or even millennia. “History in the Making is Boat Rocker Media’s very first fully self-financed production,” Rutherford says.

In the scripted space, there is Cavendish, a comedy that follows two brothers as they return home to care for their grumpy and ailing father. Cavendish, which is being produced by Boat Rocker’s Temple Street, “is a new and exciting venture into situational comedy for our team,” notes Rutherford.

There is a new season of the kids’ and family series The Next Step. The Strange Chores, meanwhile, is an animated series for kids 6 to 11. Boat Rocker Rights is also offering up the preschool show The Polos.

“Boat Rocker Rights has played an integral role in the development, production and distribution of these highlights,” Rutherford adds. “We are really excited about our latest shows and delighted to bring such a rich and varied programming slate to MIPCOM. We’re looking forward to talking to broadcasters and platforms about our expanded catalog of premium entertainment across all genres.”
