GODIGITAL ACQUIRES COMING OF AGE COMEDY “AGE OF SUMMERHOOD”
The Feature Will Be Available on Digital and Cable Video-On-Demand This Summer
LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2013- GoDigital announced today the acquisition of digital and cable video-on-demand distribution rights to AGE OF SUMMERHOOD, a youthful, lighthearted comedy following four riotous boys at what they perceive to be the pivotal stage of their development – summer camp. Written and directed by Jacob Medjuck and narrated by John Cusack, AGE OF SUMMERHOOD will see a digital release via GoDigital in summer 2013.
“I went to camp for 11 years – there were so many experiences worth noting,” said writer and director Jacob Medjuck. “Years later, these are the backbone of a film that I’m incredibly proud of, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to work with GoDigital to share it.”
Distributing partner GoDigital shares this sentiment: “The subject of this film is inherently relatable for virtually any audience,” explained CEO Logan Mulvey. “From the taglines to the actors, new and returning, the entire experience is utterly and undeniably enjoyable and we couldn’t be more eager to introduce it to the public.”
