According to an SEC filing, the startup has raised $5 million. The filing was first spotted by BetaBeat.

Oak Investment Partners may be an investor, as Fred Harman is mentioned in the filing. 

Bedrocket founder Brian Bedol and Nancy Tellem, the former president of CBS Television Studios, are also mentioned. Tellem may be a key new hire for the young company.
