KABO International Places Pair of Avanti Series with Sky Italia


KABO International has secured a licensing agreement with Sky Italia for two of Avanti Groupe’s factual-entertainment series, Matchmaking Kids and Planning Mom and Dad’s Wedding.

Both series are distributed by KABO International in association with Avanti Groupe and are scheduled to launch on the Italian network this summer. Matchmaking Kids is an entertainment dating series where kids go on a mission to find that special someone for their single mom or dad. Planning Mom and Dad’s Wedding is a family adventure that allows children to play the role of wedding organizers as their parents learn to let go of certain aspects of what must be the happiest day of their lives.

Arabelle Pouliot-Di Crescenzo, managing director of KABO International, said: “Sky Italia is the perfect platform to deliver these two shows to Italian viewers as the global demand for relationship, dating and family entertainment programs continues on a strong trajectory. We love the fact that the main elements in both series are determined by kids, culminating in a fresh and hilarious perspective on relationship choices. We are also thrilled to be able to deliver both programs as ready-mades, an initiative we are developing alongside our format business as we continue to grow and diversify our catalog.”
