Jun 10, 2015
Through an expanded agreement, The Orchard will digitally distribute 3 new films in 2015, including UnReal and The Sammy C Project.
New York, NY & Los Angeles, CA – June 10, 2015 – The Orchard announced today that it has expanded its partnership with Teton Gravity Research (TGR), the award-winning action sports media company, to include 3 new films due out later this year. This is in addition to TGR’s full catalog, which The Orchard is already distributing, and covers all digital rights worldwide.
“The Orchard continues to expand TGR’s reach into new and evolving digital platforms, so we are excited to release our three feature films of 2015 with them,” says TGR’s CFO Brett Hills. “It is important to us that all TGR fans around the globe have access to our content on any device, and The Orchard makes this possible.”
unReal, the first of the three films, is the highly-anticipated mountain bike documentary, slated for a July release. The movie stars world-renowned mountain bikers Brandon Semenuk, Brett Rheeder, Cam McCaul, Graham Agassiz and more as they ride through extreme territory. Next will be the 20th annual Teton Gravity ski and snowboard release in October, Paradise Awaits, followed by the freeskiing adventures of 7-time X Games medalist Sammy Carlson documented in The Sammy C Project.
The deal bolsters the existing partnership between Teton Gravity Research and The Orchard, extending The Orchard’s role to exclusive digital distributor of TGR’s entire film catalog. The Orchard will roll out the films in both traditional transactional stores, as well as new avenues like Cable VOD and InFlight Entertainment.
“We are honored and thrilled to continue our relationship with TGR on these additional 3 films,” says The Orchard’s VP of Sports, Danny Grant. “As they continue to crank out the hits, we are dedicated to providing an unsurpassed digital reach for their brand and film sponsors.”
