CEO Brian O’Shea and his team will handle international sales on Ron Howard’s film about Jay-Z’s two-day music festival that is set to premiere in Toronto on Saturday .
Imagine Entertainment, Marcy Media and RadicalMedia produced the film in association with Participant Media.
Made In America chronicles last year’s two-day Philadelphia event headlined and curated by Jay-Z that featured sets from Kanye West, Pearl Jam, The Hives, Janelle Monáe and Run-D.M.C, among others.
Brian Grazer, Steve Stoute, Justin Wilkes and Jonathan Silberberg produced with Howard. Jay Z, Paul Chibe, Diane Weyermann, Jeff Skoll, Erica Huggins, Jon Kamen and Sidney Beaumont served as executive producers.
“Ron Howard has created an entertaining and inspirational documentary,” said O’Shea. “The music of Made In America and the inspiration for this event concert are simply fantastic. The Exchange team is proud to bring this highly commercial film to our international buyers.”
The Exchange’s Laura Ivey and Max Leeds brokered the deal with CAA.
Made In America will get its small screen debut on Oct 11 on Showtime.
