We looked after the North American DVD and VOD release of the powerful Australian prison drama Rise starring Martin Sacks, Marty Rhone and Erin Connor, written and directed by former nurse Mack Lindon based on real life events that happened to him.
At age 25, Mack Lindon’s life was left in shambles after a one-night stand led to a rape charge. After his trial and subsequent sentencing to a maximum-security prison, he had to fight to survive, all the while striving to prove his innocence. Rise centers on an unlikely friendship formed with Jimmy, a hardened armed robber and the legal battle by a prominent lawyer who must compromise status and wage to prove his innocence.
We handled all aspects of the North American national publicity campaign, securing reviews, features and digital content across broadcast, print and online media outlets.
