ATF Spotlight: 9 Story Media Group


SINGAPORE: The new series 3 Amigonauts takes center stage for 9 Story Media Group at ATF.

Intended for 6- to 11-year-olds, the series follows three friends who attend the solar system’s most prestigious space academy. “3 Amigonauts’ characters are hilarious, quite endearing and universally lovable,” says Federico Vargas, 9 Story Media Group’s director of distribution. “In addition to the lovability of the characters, the show’s story lines are chock-full of visual gags and jokes, adding to its global appeal.”

Another comedy from 9 Story is the animated show Nature Cat, which targets kids aged 4 to 8 and features a “robust educational component,” says Vargas. The Emmy Award-winning preschool series Peg + Cat, which is also on the company’s slate, encourages youngsters to develop math and problem-solving skills.

“Our goal is to be the go-to partner for children’s content around the world and serve as a real alternative to the major studios,” adds Vargas.
