Zipper Bros., Exclusive Media ink doc pact

'Undefeated' team expands relationship

Exclusive Media Group and documentary producer Zipper Bros. Films have signed a first look deal to develop, finance and produce up to two ”social purpose” documentary features annually.

Exclusive Media and Zipper Bros. Films have partnered already on ”Undefeated,” the upcoming doc about the aspirations of an inner-city Memphis football team. The film was picked up by The Weinstein Company earlier this year at SXSW, where ”Undefeated” had its world premiere.

The films will be produced under Spitfire Pictures, Exclusive’s documentary label. Companies made the joint announcement Monday at the Toronto Film Festival, where ”Undefeated” is showing.

”Undefeated” is directed by Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin and produced by Exclusive’s Spitfire label and Zipper Bros in association with Level 22 and Five Smooth Stones Prods.

”After an amazing experience working together with Exclusive in producing Undefeated, Zipper Bros is incredibly excited to expand this relationship and together bring provocative and unexpected stories to the big screen,” said Zipper president Ralph Zipper.
