Documentaries & Other
Non-Fiction Series & Films

Our clients produce and direct documentaries and other non-fiction series and films for broadcast and cable television; radio; web series and podcasts, SVOD and theatrical release. They have numerous won awards including the Emmy, Academy Award, duPont-Columbia Award, Independent Documentary Association Award, and Peabody, as well as awards at major film festivals. They engage us in all facets of financing, development, production and distribution. We negotiate employment contracts on behalf of individuals working as network producers and represent independent producers at major festivals such as Sundance and SXSW. We also negotiate and draft financing and distribution deals, acquire rights in underlying works (such as non-fiction articles and books), and negotiate agreements with crew members. Our clients rely on our decades of experience in defamation, privacy and publicity rights, and copyright review, through which we emphasize practical ways of realizing creators’ goals.
