The DRG CHALLENGE:
Digital Rights Group (DRG), a leading distributor of content in the UK, signed a development deal for the television comedy series Blowout with Filmaka members Michael Kinney and Max Herholz. They were discovered through Filmaka's Hard Times competition, which DRG sponsored. Next, DRG offered another opportunity for Filmaka members to have their ideas heard. They partnered with Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC), Canada's national public broadcaster to create a competition for a game show.
