TUBI TO EXCLUSIVELY STREAM ROBERT RODRIGUEZ’S LATEST FILM AND DOCU-SERIES
The sci-fi thriller and companion docu-series will be available completely free this summer SAN FRANCISCO, January 27, 2020 – Tubi (www.tubi.tv), the world’s largest free ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) service, today announced it would be the exclusive streaming home to Red 11 and The Robert Rodriguez Film School from the eponymous critically-acclaimed filmmaker of From Dusk Till Dawn, Spy Kids, and Alita: Battle Angel. Following a world premiere at SXSW and official screening in Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, the film and series will be available on Tubi in the US, Canada, and Mexico this summer. Based on Robert Rodriguez’s experiences in a medical research facility to finance his first feature El Mariachi, Red 11 is set in the dark, twisted world of legal drug research. College kids turn lab rats to make quick money, and our hero, Rob (who is assigned the color and number Red 11), is here to buy his way out of a huge debt to the tune of $7,000. But things get surreal when he’s not sure if the hospital is really trying to kill him, or if it’s side effects from the experimental drugs. Equally as intriguing as the movie itself, Robert Rodriguez produced this movie with the same sensibility and methodology – and $7,000 budget – as his first feature El Mariachi.  The Robert Rodriguez Film School is a docu-series companion piece to the feature that explains this process, while speaking to filmmakers and entrepreneurs alike on overcoming the perceived limitations of time, budget, and other variables. “I’m thrilled to be partnering with Tubi to deliver Red 11 and its accompanying Film School docuseries free of charge and easily accessible to all audiences,” said Robert Rodriguez. “I made both Red 11 and the Film School series to celebrate the 25th anniversary of El Mariachi, and this project shows truly actionable methods using my no crew, micro-budget filmmaking style that will inspire others to make their own films and have their voices be heard. These are both dream projects of mine, an entertaining culmination of ideas and ruminations on the creative process that also highlight the heightened sense of spirituality that comes from dancing with creativity when there is an absence of the usual financial resources. In other words, ‘low budg fun.’” “Red 11 and the story of how Robert made this movie is inspirational to up-and-coming filmmakers,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “We are thrilled to amplify Robert’s message to the next generation of filmmakers as a part of our commitment to helping independent films find a wide audience.” Tubi continues to expand its massive content library which currently contains more than 20,000 movies and television series – more than double the size of Netflix. Just this month, it was announced that Tubi would launch in Mexico with TV Azteca, one of the two largest producers of Spanish-language television programming in the world. Tubi is available on Hisense televisions, Android and iOS mobile devices, Amazon Echo Show, Google Nest Hub Max, Comcast Xfinity X1, Cox Contour, and on OTT devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Vizio TVs, Sony TVs, Samsung TVs, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
