Global Digital Releasing Acquires North American Rights to ‘Sign The Show’; Releasing for National Deaf History Month

Global Digital Releasing has teamed with director-producer Cat Brewer to release the award-winning documentary film, “Sign The Show”.

Featuring Kelly Clarkson, D.L. Hughley, Andre 3000, Camryn Manheim, and more, “Sign The Show” immerses you in humorous, heartfelt, and insightful conversations about the need and value of providing accessibility through every element of entertainment and learning how to do so, starting with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community.

Brewer shared their thoughts about making the film:

“I had been attending music concerts for 35+ years before I saw a sign language interpreter at a show. It was 2014, and I was completely ignorant; I didn’t realize Deaf & HOH individuals enjoyed going to concerts. 

After speaking with the interpreter and then communicating with the Deaf concert goers via the interpreter, I was heartbroken and disappointed when I learned about the incredible challenges this community faces when trying to access live entertainment… something I’ve taken for granted my entire life. I shared my unsettled feelings with a friend who encouraged me to make a documentary… and so I did.

I’ve been a college Communications instructor for the past 24 years. I have no background in film, but I do have a knack for connecting, communicating, and hustling with gratitude and love. So, I bought a camera and tripod and traveled across the US, interviewing over 50 different entertainers, dozens of Deaf & HOH individuals and ASL interpreters.

My passions are educating and advocating for things I believe in, even if they don’t directly affect me. My hope is that Sign the Show will create a cultural shift in the entertainment industry by making open access to live entertainment the norm for a more inclusive world.”

The film is currently available on Tubi TV and will go wide across digital platforms on March 21st, 2024, in honor of National Deaf History Month
