It is an exciting time for the show as our reach will now allow us to connect with so many people,” said producer Madeline Giaquinto.

Celebrity interview show “Behind the Velvet Rope”, hosted by Arthur Kade, will be covering the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival running from April 15 – April 26. The show, produced by New York-based production company M Squared Entertainment, has also entered into a distribution agreement with Zonzia Media, Inc. to produce content for the entertainment broadcast company.

“Behind the Velvet Rope” will now be streaming in over 48 million homes through VOD across Comcast, Verizon, and Dish Networks through Zonzia’s network. The show will also be available in over 1.2 million hotel rooms in the U.S. The show will be syndicated digitally across the web, with a reach of 5 million impressions per day. It will continue to focus on both long-form sit down discussions and red carpet celebrity interviews, giving fans access to their favorite movie, music, TV, sports, fashion and reality stars where they most want to consume this content: via digital platforms and social media.

In addition to providing daily coverage from the festival, “Behind the Velvet Rope” will also be providing 360 degree social media coverage including live tweeting and streaming from the carpets featuring exclusive pictures and video clips.

“Behind the Velvet Rope” previously covered the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. The cultural event has become an annual staple in New York City that supports emerging and established filmmakers.

"Founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, following the attacks on the World Trade Center, to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of the lower Manhattan district through an annual celebration of film, music, and culture, the Festival brings the industry and community together around storytelling.

The Tribeca Film Festival has screened more than 1,600 films from more than 80 countries since its first edition in 2002. Since inception, it has attracted an international audience of more than 4.9 million attendees, and has generated an estimated $900 million in economic activity for New York City."
