Genius Brands Notches Up Deals


Genius Brands International has closed a raft of international content sales for multiple series, including Rainbow Rangers, in Europe, Latin America and the Asia Pacific.

Season two of Rainbow Rangers and Frederator Networks’ Bravest Warriors have been licensed to Netflix in Australia and New Zealand. Max acquired Rainbow Rangers seasons one and two for Latin America and the Caribbean Basin.

Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the feature movie Stan Lee’s Mighty 7 have been sold to Mexico’s TV Azteca. Chile’s Television Nacional de Chile also picked up the rights to Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab.

YFE signed a deal for five seasons of Fairly OddParents with Super RTL’s Toggo platform in Germany, and TV3 Group licensed the rights to titles such as Rainbow Rangers to air across the Baltic countries. YFE also concluded a 25-title content package deal, including Fix&Foxi, Gloria’s House, Da Boom Crew and the Happy Never After animated movie, to the Cliq Digital platform in Germany; and a 14-title license deal with Mauritius Telecom for programming from the Genius Brands’ library, including Rainbow Rangers, and multiple catalog titles from YFE.

Paul Robinson, head of international sales and president of Kartoon Channel! Worldwide at Genius Brands, commented: “Our catalog of content continues to be in demand with broadcasters and platforms around the globe. We offer high-quality programming from creators such as the legendary Stan Lee and high-caliber talent like Arnold Schwarzenegger that offers fun entertainment with positive messaging to young audiences. We are thrilled to work with our new media partners to continue to deliver on our mission to provide truly valuable family-friendly content!”

YFE’s COO, Bernd Wendeln, said: “YFE has perhaps the largest catalog of children’s and family programming in Europe, featuring audience favorites, such as Fairly OddParents. Both YFE and Genius Brands are known around the world for producing high-quality, safe, value-driven content for children and their families, and we are pleased to meet the demands of our broadcasters and platforms worldwide to deliver this slate of programming.”
