Sales for Awesomeness, Comedy Central, MTV & Nickelodeon Shows


Viacom International Studios (VIS) has landed a raft of international sales for brand-new scripted, comedy and animation titles hailing from the Awesomeness, Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon brands.

TF1 inked a deal for Nickelodeon’s new preschool series, and Spin Master co-production, Abby Hatcher. The show’s launch will follow in the footsteps of former Spin Master co-production and preschool hit PAW Patrol, which debuted on the channel in 2015.

The U.K.’s Channel 4 picked up the Comedy Central scripted series The Other Two, which has also been acquired by Foxtel’s Comedy Channel in Australia.

From the Awesomeness catalog, Ziggo in the Netherlands acquired the first two seasons of Light as a Feather and Zac & Mia, along with the scripted dramas Guidance and My Dead Ex for launch on its SVOD service Movies and Series.

Lagardère Group strengthened its ties with AwesomenessTV; after having previously acquired the series You’ve Been T@gged and Sleep Tight, the network will launch two new Awesomeness titles on its youth channel, Elle Girl TV. Zac & Mia debuts April 11, followed by Light as a Feather on May 9.

Norway’s TV2 picked up MTV’s Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, to be made available on the network’s SVOD platform, TV2 Sumo.

Lauren Marriott, VP of international content sales for VIS, said: “We’re thrilled to announce so many fantastic deals here at MIPTV. With a sales slate brimming with new shows spanning Viacom’s portfolio of global brands, including MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and now Awesomeness, now more than ever, we are incredibly proud to offer something for every audience and every schedule. We look forward to working closely with all our partners, to make these shows readily available to new audiences everywhere.”
