Viacom’s youth-focused network MTV has slated the music-infused docuseries Dare to Live for a late-August premiere date. Produced by THEOS and Roush Wagner Company, each half-hour episode of the series will feature renowned videographer Rory Kramer (pictured) and celebrity musicians on a thrill-seeking adventure. Featured in the series are such artists as The Chainsmokers, Rae Sremmurd, Shawn Mendes, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Krewella, DJ Khalid and Iggy Azalea.
British pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned a raft of projects for two of its doc strands. Seven documentary films by up-and-coming directors have been greenlit for ‘First Cut’ — a doc strand devoted to new talent. The hour-long films explore a variety of pressing issues that run the gamut from racial segregation through to the impact of Brexit on Britain’s temporary workforce.
On tap for this week’s edition of ‘Renewed and Returning’ are new seasons of series on Discovery, TLC, WE tv and more. Diesel Brothers returns to Discovery Channels ‘Motor Mondays’ Sept. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Produced by Magilla Entertainment, the series follows long-time buddies Heavy D and Diesel Dave who have started their own business by purchasing used, or broken down trucks and tricking them out for sales, while posting their pranks and stunt driving on social media.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
