A Genius Leaves The Hood: The Unauthorized Story of Jay ZCinedigm and Moguldom Studios have entered into a multi-year, multi-picture deal for Moguldom’s slate of independent films, which explore stories related to the modern, pop culture experience. The deal provides for no less than 10 new films per year. Additionally, Cinedigm has acquired the distribution rights to seven catalog titles from the Moguldom Studios’ library. Cinedigm will have certain US distribution rights to the films, including digital, television, and physical home entertainment.

Moguldom Studios is a production company for the next generation, creating independent documentary films that are branded as ‘Docutainment.’  Docutainment captures the intersection of reality and traditional storytelling techniques in order to take a unique and objective look at the modern, pop culture experience.

“With its Docutainment slate, Moguldom Studios is taking on controversial and often taboo topics in a frank, entertaining and no-holds barred manner,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s executive vice president of Acquisitions. “We are proud to partner with Moguldom to bring these films to audiences eager for stories that speak to and reflect not only the African American community but our increasingly cross-cultural society as a whole." 

“We are very excited to partner with Cinedigm. They are the nation’s premier distributor of independent films, and we know that our partnership with them will allow our films to be consumed by the masses. These are important topics and the more people that are able to join the debate, the better,” said Brett Dismuke, President of Moguldom Entertainment.
