From a recent press release:
Highlights include TNT’s ‘Leverage,’ ‘The Times of Harvey Milk’ Documentary
New York, NY (January 13, 2009) – Cinetic Rights Management (CRM), a digital aggregator for independent producers, is thrilled to bring its film and TV content to the iTunes Store (www.iTunes.com).
Season One of TNT’s new hit series, Leverage, is among the popular content Cinetic will bring to iTunes. The series, starring Oscar-winner Timothy Hutton, spotlights a team of five high-tech thieves who circle the globe and utilize their talents to fight underworld mobsters, unethical global corporations and corrupt politicians. The television broadcast premiere ranked as TNT’s best original series telecast ever in delivery of the key 18-49 demographic during a regular broadcast season. Leverage currently airs in its regular timeslot Tuesday nights at 10EST/9CST. Through CRM, Leverage is now available on iTunes in both high-definition and standard-definition formats.
Among its feature film programming, Cinetic brought Rob Epstein’s Oscar-winning documentary “The Times of Harvey Milk” to iTunes in November 2008, which follows the real-life subject that is the basis for Gus Van Sant’s “Milk.” CRM is also happy to bring recent film festival hits such as Dave McLaughlin’s comedy “On Broadway” and Randall Sharp’s period drama “Henry May Long,” to iTunes in January.
“iTunes is an amazing destination for content,” says CRM’s head of programming Matt Dentler. “Both film audiences and filmmakers love having new and classic entertainment available at their fingertips. We’re excited to help producers and distributors bring film and TV programming to such an important store.”
Some of the CRM films currently available on the iTunes Store, include: Whit Stillman’s Oscar-nominated comedy “Metropolitan,” the acclaimed teen sci-fi drama “One Day Like Rain,” Richard Linklater’s influential indie film “Slacker,” and the Sundance relationship comedy “Detective Fiction.” Upcoming iTunes releases from Cinetic include: the Harry Potter fan documentary “We Are Wizards,” the WWII drama “Taking Sides,” and soccer documentary “The Team,” from the director of “Man On Wire.”
