Rebel Pilgrim Productions Launches with Multiple Projects
Rebel Pilgrim produced the multi-award winning poker-themed comedy Hitting The Nuts, which signed a digital distribution deal with Cinetic Media this month. The company's first theatrical release set for early 2013 is A Strange Brand of Happy, a faith-based comedy starring Grammy Winner Rebecca St. James and Academy Award Winner Shirley Jones.
The capital raise will allow the company to produce a made-for-television movie in 2013, and four additional projects over the next four years.
The company hired Brad Wise (A Strange Brand of Happy) as Chief Creative Officer and Isaac Stambaugh (Smells Like Community Spirit) as in-house Producer. They have leased what were once the original executive offices of the Proctor & Gamble Company in the historic Gwynne Building in downtown Cincinnati.
