Rum Lime Productions’ Coast Guard: Mission Critical
UK sales house Cineflix Rights has acquired distribution rights to a factual series about marine rescue from US prodco Rum Lime Productions.
Coast Guard: Mission Critical (10×60’) follows US Coast Guard staff 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.
The show is produced by Rum Lime alongside Gulp Pictures and History US. Rum Lime’s Cork Friedman and Gulp’s George Plamondon serve as exec producers on the series.
Richard Life, head of acquisitions at Cineflix Rights, said: “Rum Lime 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.”
