Artist Rights Distribution has acquired both 'The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down' and the drama 'Cargo.'

Meghan Markle is heading back across the Atlantic.

The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down, Paul Sapiano's tongue-in-cheek look at twenty-something singles clubbing and partying in Los Angeles and featuring a pre-royal Duchess of Sussex, has been picked up by Artist Rights Distribution for North America. 

The company has also acquired Kareem Mortimer's drama Cargo, which stars Warren Brown (Strike Back) and tells the story of a fisherman whose income proves woefully insufficient to cover his son’s school fees and is forced to turn to human smuggling to make ends meet.

Headed up by Patrick DiCesare, Artist Rights Distribution has also snared the exclusive rights to the comedy Hollywood Sex Wars, the sailing doc Manry at Sea, Oliver Mann’s Such a Funny Life, Matthew Wohl’s Scooter and Children of God, the story of two young Bahamian men who fall in love with each other and portrays the homophobia of Bahamian society.

Artist Rights Distribution, which released the comedy Driving While Black earlier this month, plans to release all the titles this year, while also shopping them to international distributors at the ongoing European Film Market in Berlin and at upcoming markets.
