“Women Who Rock is a celebration of the iconic women who boldly paved the way for rock ‘n’ roll’s men’s club,” said Michael Wright, President of EPIX. “I am thrilled to once again partner with John Varvatos and Network Entertainment to continue EPIX’s tradition of developing quality musical docuseries for our discerning audience.”
Network previously teamed up with EPIX, Varvatos and Iggy Pop on the documentary series PUNK, which won five Leo Awards, and was produced by John Varvatos and Iggy Pop, and explored the rise of the punk movement.
Freemantle will distribute Women Who Rock to major broadcasters worldwide and internationally in all media.
New program in preparation
Network Media Group told investors they can look forward to new programming as pandemic travel restrictions are lifted in North America.

Corporate Finance Director Derek Battersby said in April that the latest set of results “is not indicative of our current operations.” He said the company has “a full slate of projects in various stages of development.”
The physical production of the company has now fully resumed after the interruption of filming by the Covid. “We expect the bulk of these projects that are now back in production to be delivered to our partners in fiscal year 2022,” Battersby said. “We believe the scale of projects to be delivered in the coming year have strong business potential and will create unlimited new opportunities for Network.”
