Hall of Fame to Partner with Roundtable Entertainment for Content Development and Distribution Project
(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Roundtable Entertainment have entered into an exclusive, multi-year agreement to produce and distribute a variety of unscripted projects to bring the stories of baseball’s incredible impact and biggest names onto screens across America. Roundtable will produce projects under a joint venture subsidiary Round the Horn, LLC.
"Baseball is more than a game; it's an emotional experience that touches the soul and connects people in incredible ways, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is the pinnacle of that experience. The Roundtable Entertainment team understands the Hall of Fame's unique position in the game, and we are aligned on a strategy to leverage content to expand our reach and support our key initiatives and overall mission.” said Josh Rawitch, President of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Roundtable is working on a variety of programming focused on the game’s rich history, its greatest and most compelling players, and the impact of baseball on culture and race relations both in the U.S. and abroad.
“We are in development on a fantastic slate of initial projects that focus on the Hall’s Black Baseball Initiative, the incredible contributions of Asian players to baseball as well as some programming featuring the game’s best Latin American players,” Roundtable’s Griffin Gmelich said.
Round the Horn’s Dan McNamee added: “We are beyond honored to have the opportunity to partner with the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The Museum meticulously preserves the history of baseball and is a treasure trove of stories that come to life with over 40,000 artifacts and three million library items. We can’t wait to share these stories in a way that is compelling to a broad viewership.”
More details about specific projects will be released in the near future.
