4KUNIVERSE & Cirque Berzerk Partner on 4K Specials


LOS ANGELES: 4KUNIVERSE, a new general-entertainment channel from Matthew Mancinelli, is collaborating with Suzanne Down Productions and Cirque Berzerk Productions on live and taped 4K specials this year.

Cirque Berzerk Productions is currently bringing a whole new cast of characters to 4KUNIVERSE viewers. The shows will be filmed with 4K HDR cameras and will be exclusively on 4KUNIVERSE’s linear and SVOD offering. Mancinelli’s global distribution company, Mance Media, has acquired the international distribution rights for the specials in HD and 4K resolutions.

“With 4KUNIVERSE currently live on SES’s satellite covering North America, it is our focus to add the very best 4K content, empowering cable/telcos to satisfy their millions of customers who currently own a 4K TV set,” stated Mancinelli, 4KUNIVERSE’s founder and CEO. “The Cirque Berzerk 4K specials add prime-time programming that the whole family can enjoy.”

Down, producer, added: “I can’t think of a better home than 4KUNIVERSE for Cirque Berzerk and Suzanne Down Productions. Our characters’ movement, detailed make-up and costume design lends itself perfectly to the crystal-clear 4K video format, making it possible for audiences to feel part of the action. The 4K format will allow you to run away and join the circus!”
