IM Global Television to Rep Michael Jackson Cartoon


IM Global Television, a JV between IM Global, Tencent and Tang Media Partners, has signed on to manage the international broadcast rights for the new CGI-animated special Michael Jackson’s Halloween.

Michael Jackson’s Halloween comes from Optimum Productions. The hour-long TV event is slated for broadcast on CBS in the U.S. this fall. IM Global Television previously handled international sales for the Optimum documentary Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall.

Eli Shibley, IM Global Television’s president of international distribution and co-productions, said: “I am thrilled and truly thankful for the opportunity to partner with the Estate of Michael Jackson on the international distribution of Michael Jackson’s Halloween. This is a universally relatable story accompanied by a magically reimagined Michael Jackson song list and will be a timeless and beloved hit for generations to come.”
