Distribution360 Concludes Raft of Deals Across Asia


Distribution360 has secured a series of sales across Asia, including one that sends 504 episodes of Skyship Entertainment content to KTH in South Korea.

The company has also placed four titles with the specialist kids’ channel Da Vinci. In the award-winning series MathXplosion—acquired by Da Vinci for nine Asian markets, including China and India—‘mathemagician’ Eric Leclerc helps kids aged 6 to 11 foster a love of numbers, while in ScienceXplosion—acquired for India—he shows the amazing ways that science can be found all around us. Both series are produced by GAPC Entertainment.

The deal with KTH includes Super Simple Songs, Super Simple Draw, Super Simple ABCs, Turn and Learn ABCs, Pratfall, Milo’s Monster School Vlog and Finley’s Factory, among others. This slate of live-action and animated content features song and dance in learning-filled episodes set in a wide range of worlds for young children to explore.

Snapshots, winner of the 2018 International Emmy Kids Award for best non-scripted entertainment, will air in more than 30 Asian territories, including China, India, Malaysia, Singapore and South Korea. Snapshots is a photographic series from Forte Entertainment that challenges talented kids to take the best possible photo. Finally, Spellz, acquired for nine territories including Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and China and also produced by GAPC Entertainment, sees magician Jay Sankey and kid assistant Bridget Hall reveal the inner workings of some spectacular magic tricks.

MathXplosion has also been licensed to True Visions in Thailand and PCCW in Hong Kong and Macau. True Visions’ deal with Distribution360 also includes 52 episodes of The Super Simple Show and 26 episodes of the art show Super Simple Draw. PCCW’s package also features Super Mighty Makers, a craft show for 6- to 9-year-olds, led by super-crafting host Bondini. Super Mighty Makers is produced by Distribution360’s parent company marblemedia and sees a team of kid superheroes with special DIY powers set out to use their powers for good and create something useful to help make someone’s day.

Diane Rankin, Distribution360’s senior VP of rights, commented: “I am delighted to see so many of our recent kids’ titles find such great homes across Asia. Whether for preschoolers or older age groups, we purposely set out to fill our kids’ catalog with distinctive shows that not only entertain and inform in new and exciting ways but that also have a sense of optimism about them. Super Mighty Makers is one such series as it shows kids having fun while also having a positive impact on people’s lives by making stuff that is helpful and useful to others.”
