Cineflix Rights acquires Coast Guard: Mission Critical from RumLime Productions

April 06, 2020

Cineflix Rights has acquired exciting new blue light series Coast Guard: Mission Critical from US producer RumLime Productions.

Coast Guard: Mission Critical (10×60’, RumLime Productions in association with Gulp Pictures, History US) follows the men and women of the United States Coast Guard as they patrol and protect America’s borders from drug runners, terrorists, and human traffickers, all while saving the lives of those in peril at sea. With a film crew embedded 24/7, the series features unprecedented access to high-octane missions that were previously off-limits to cameras, as the Coast Guard rescues passengers from sinking vessels, seizes illegal contraband, and patrols against foreign threats of every kind.

Richard Life, Head of Acquisitions, Cineflix Rights, said: “RumLime Productions has created a great example of what I call ‘blue chip, blue light’ content: high quality programming combining exclusive access and innovative filming methods to capture all the drama on the high seas. We’re thrilled to have them on board as a producer partner, and look forward to launching the show to our international buyers.” 

“With Coast Guard: Mission Critical, we’re bringing the world unprecedented access to never before seen United States Coast Guard missions,” added show creator Cork Friedman. “For the first time ever utilizing 360° body cams, viewers will see actual rescues and law-enforcement missions from the eyes of the specialty trained USCG operatives… as they go down. You’ll think you’re in a Hollywood movie, but in fact, it’s the real deal, with real bad guys and real bullets. If you’ve ever wondered how 80 percent of the drugs headed to the United States are seized, or what it’s like to save people as a helicopter pilot, ship mate or a rescue swimmer, tune in!”

The deal was closed by Giuliana Benvenuto, Manager, Acquisitions, North America, Cineflix Rights. The Executive Producers of Coast Guard: Mission Critical are Cork Friedman for RumLime Productions and George Plamondon, for Gulp Pictures.
