Genius Genie Among Distribution360’s MIPJunior, MIPCOM Highlights


Distribution360 (D360) is heading to Cannes with a slate of kids’ and family titles, as well as new factual content.

The animated preschool series Genius Genie follows a well-meaning genie who doesn’t always get his wishes quite right. There is also the award-winning show Give, which is available as a finished program and as a format, and the live-action preschool series I’m Ready (working title).

In terms of unscripted highlights, D360 is offering the history series WW2 Treasure Hunters, the paranormal thriller Terror in the Woods, the hidden-camera show Random Acts and season two of the lifestyle series Bryan Inc. There is also American Ride and The New Creatives. D360 is looking to secure presales for Titanic: Stories from the Deep, which shows viewers objects recovered from the shipwreck by Premier Exhibitions.

Diane Rankin, the senior VP of international at D360, said, “We are thrilled to bring such a broad selection of programs from a mix of genres across our specialties of kids’/family and unscripted programming to MIPCOM 2017. We strive to supply content that offers co-viewing and broad appeal to meet international demand. This slate underpins our commitment to these genres and the kind of shows and formats we feel will resonate with worldwide buyers and audiences.”
