fb.indiewire.com – When the Oprah Winfrey Network’s Documentary Club launched in May 2011, it was pitched as an extension of Winfrey’s mega-successful Book Club. It was a way for Winfrey to air inspiring real-life stories that fit her brand as well as promote documentary filmmaking, with Rosie O’Donnell as a collaborator. A good portion of that original nonfiction film content was brought in by ro*co Films Productions, which signed a two-year agreement with the network to acquire and produce docs for the channel and the Doc Club banner. Ro*co announced Monday that its agreement with OWN has not been extended, and while ro*co moves on to work with 1492 Pictures and other broadcast and digital partnerships, OWN has decided to bring its acquisitions completely in-house.
