July 20, 2022

FilmRise, the New York-based film and television studio and streaming network, has secured the exclusive worldwide rights to former US Army Green Beret Nate Boyer’s directorial feature film debut, MVP.

FilmRise joins the non-profit organisation Merging Vets and Players and its partnership with the NFL to launch a nationwide multi-tiered distribution and fund-raising initiative for the film commencing later this summer and running through the upcoming football season. Merging Vets and Players which Boyer co-founded with Fox Sports NFL Insider personality and mental health advocate Jay Glazer, is supported by the NFL and many of its teams.

Danny Fisher, CEO at FilmRise, commented: “We all face very personal struggles in our lifetime and Nate Boyer’s ability to convey his experiences and share other heroes’ stories in such a universal way on the screen in MVP is something that we at FilmRise are so very proud to support.”

MVP Organisation co-founder added: “We’re beyond thrilled to land such a dynamic partner to help share our story with the world. FilmRise is all-in, ready to take the ball and run with it, creating awareness not only for the MVP film but for Merging Vets & Players.”

Shot on location in Los Angeles, MVP dramatises the formation of Merging Vets & Players. The film features both military veterans and former professional athletes in front of and behind the camera.
