January 7, 2020 GMT

KELOWNA, British Columbia, Jan. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allied Corp. (“Allied”) (OTCQB: ALID), an international medical cannabis company focused on creating and providing targeted cannabinoid health solutions, is pleased to announce that nationally distributed television program, Behind the Scenes with Laurence Fishburne, has selected Allied to be featured on two upcoming media segments (the “Allied segments”). The Allied segments will feature both Allied Corp. and the Allied Charitable Foundations. Filming and distribution for airing of this content is anticipated to happen in Q1 2020.

The Allied segments will touch on the PTSD epidemic and suicide rates in the veteran cohort, focusing on Allied’s intent to help those suffering with modern health issues, gaining access to natural CBD-based products. The segments are three to five minute short-form documentaries that bridge the television content gap between long-form television. These will be distributed nationally within the United States.

The Allied segments are expected to air 45 to 60 times per quarter and will be distributed to roughly 60 million households. The program is hosted by Laurence Fishburne (John Wick 2, Mystic River, King of New York and Boyz n the Hood). Behind the Scenes has graciously donated all production services to the Allied Charitable Foundations segment.

“Being able to distribute the Allied message to the Behind the Scenes’ national network will only scale the number of people who we are able to reach, and who might need this educational content,” says Calum Hughes, CEO of Allied. “We are excited to continue to inspire those suffering that there is help and a way back to health and wellness while living with PTSD, which is the core of Allied’s vision”.
