Deep Space Nine:What We Left Behind will find a wider distribution with the news that Shout! Studios has acquired worldwide rights to the documentary.
Shout! “plans to release it across multiple platforms including theatrical by year’s end.”
“Deep Space Nine has a passionate fanbase — as shown by the successful crowdfunding campaign that brought this movie to life — and we’re thrilled [to] share their love of and dedication to the show by bringing the What We Left Behind to an even wider audience,” said Michael Ribas, VP Marketing at Shout! Studios.
According to an update from the What We Left Behind team on Indiegogo, it “means we’re nearing a final release date. We’re not allowed to give any more details just yet, but plans are in place to stream the film for you sooner than you might expect.
“Secondly, it means a bigger release, and more opportunities for you. And a bigger release means a bigger audience. And a bigger audience means more people talking about Deep Space Nine. And, of course, more people talking about Deep Space Nine is a great thing!
“If CBS Studios is to ever make the huge leap to remaster the full series of DS9, they’re going to want to see that there is an audience, and a market for this large undertaking. We’ve already sparked their attention through this campaign, and the bigger splash we can make, the better message we can send that Deep Space Nine is still just as relevant today (if not more!) as it was when it first aired.”
