Cineflix signs first-look deal with Mayhem Entertainment

Cineflix Rights has signed a first-look development deal with Canadian producer Mayhem Entertainment.

The partnership gives Cineflix Rights exclusive worldwide distribution rights to Mayhem’s upcoming shows, including new series The Dog Dudes, which will be launching at MIPCOM 2018.

Mayhem was recently founded by Tyson Hepburn and Matt Shewchuk. Based in Vancouver, the company aims to deliver cinematic content to unscripted and scripted content.

The Dog Dudes are Dylan and Darijan Northstar, professional dog trainers, behaviorists, and psychology experts who have mastered the use of ‘Pack Wisdom’ to correct anxious, aggressive, and dominating canines.

The deal was brokered by Anthony Kimble, SVP of co-production and North American acquisitions at Cineflix Rights.

He said: “Mayhem is an exciting new company whose founders have a great track record in directing and producing award-winning, character-driven shows for international broadcasters. We’re really pleased to be partnering with them as they build their business and look to expand into scripted alongside factual content.”
