Boat Rocker Studios Scores Rights for Covid America Doc


The Audio Drama Initiative has signed a deal with Boat Rocker Studios for the international TV distribution rights to the documentary Covid America.

Covid America is the first two-part visual content documentary from the Audio Drama Initiative, which traditionally produces episodic podcasts. Filmed on the road in eight states, across 3,500 miles, in two weeks, the doc provides an in-depth look into how real people affected by Covid-19 are moving forward, hearing directly from Americans willing to share their experiences.

The doc is expected to be ready for air by June 2021.

“We are thrilled to be working with Boat Rocker Studios,” said director and producer Mitchell Maxwell. “Covid America is an inspiring, true insight into what real people, speaking from the heart, have experienced this past year. As filmmakers, we learned first-hand that despite the woe, Americans filled with grit and resilience, have endured. As producers, we couldn’t have imagined a better partner than Boat Rocker in the endeavor to get Covid America out to the world.”

“As soon as we heard about Covid America we knew it would be a great fit for our factual portfolio,” said Natalie Vinet, VP of global sales for unscripted at Boat Rocker Studios. “This is an extremely relevant and timely documentary that deserves to be seen around the world.”
