Boat Rocker shops Covid doc

Boat Rocker Studios has inked a deal with podcast creator the Audio Drama Initiative to distribute global TV rights to its first two-part visual documentary Covid America.

The project takes an in-depth look into how ordinary people affected by Covid-19 are moving forward with their lives, filmed across eight US states, over 3,500 miles, in two weeks.

“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 endeavour to get Covid America out to the world.”
