CHARLESTON, S.C. (PRWEB) July 22, 2020
BOLD Capital Group, LLC Chairman Denis J. Gallagher has announced the formation and launch of BOLD Entertainment, which will consolidate the investments of the company’s expanding entertainment holdings in Novo Media Group, LLC, and Front and Center Entertainment, LLC, and newly branded hub130, LLC, as well as several film and television productions and rights.
Commenting on the formation of BOLD Entertainment, Gallagher said, “The new norm has brought a ton of changes to the way content is produced and distributed. The increase in home viewers is at an all-time high. Bigger may be better in some respects, but it is also more expensive. We currently have investments in live music shows, talk, television, and animation shows plus family feature films. We wanted to consolidate the assets to leverage the expertise and talent we have in the various companies. By doing so, we have opened new ways to improve the creative process and the delivery. The new digital platform will be a very useful tool of distribution for all sizes of content providers.”
Novo Media Group (Novo) is a Los Angeles-based content development company that is currently producing an upcoming ten-episode animated children’s series for Netflix, in partnership with Toronto-based BoatRocker Media. Novo has additional film and television projects in development and is completing post-production on its first feature film This Is The Year, directed by Novo Executive and actor David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Little Boy). The film has recently been acquired by BOLD Entertainment, which is producing a first-ever, live, virtual premiere with celebrities from film, television, music, and social media to benefit several important charities.
