  • Covert Media also will service and support the library, and upcoming projects, for MCC-owned QED.
  • MCC, the global media fund led by financiers Sasha Shapiro and Anton Lessine, has committed to fully financing the new venture, adding it to its growing portfolio of film, TV and digital media assets that include QED (Shapiro also worked for 14 years as a senior international executive at Warner Bros.).
