Timely conspiracy thriller Magnum Opus, starring Pej Vehat and Adam J. Harrington, has secured domestic and international distributors, it was announced today. Gravitas Ventures will administer distribution domestically, while Screen Media International will continue to handle international sales, presenting the film to foreign buyers at MIPCOM and AFM. The film will be also released on VOD and DVD this November.
Following a number of darker TV roles, including a mercenary for hire, an extortionist and a serial killer, Adam Harrington is making a return to comedy this summer. The Parks and Rec and Drop Dead Diva alum will find himself tackling prima donnas of a different sort when he takes on the role of harried network executive Jason Abel on VH1’s Daytime Divas.
Congressional negotiators in Washington reached a deal to fund the federal government through September, and it must pass by to prevent a shutdown. Not that it's surprising, but the spending bill is not at all conservative — in fact it resembles something Democrats would have sent to Barack liar-nObama, who would have been delighted to sign it. To be sure, this spending bill is causing grassroots conservatives to wonder what it's going to take to win real spending reform in the Swamp.
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".
