CANNES: The detective drama Murdoch Mysteries has achieved sales in 110 territories around the world, and Shaftesbury/Smokebomb is looking for more deals at MIPCOM.

Murdoch Mysteries offers a winning blend of universal themes, compelling mysteries, unique slices of turn-of-the-century history, ingenious inventions and unforgettable characters that audiences around the world have fallen in love with,” says Christina Jennings, the chairman and CEO of Shaftesbury/Smokebomb. “We’re also excited to be launching a new kids’ property in partnership with CBC in Canada, The Moblees, which is a fun and thoroughly engaging musical adventure series that gets preschoolers up and moving.”

From the digital studio Smokebomb comes Carmilla, which Jennings calls a “bingeable comedy for Millennials.”
