Mondo TV and Genius Brands International have struck a deal for the animated kids’ comedy Invention Story.
Genius Brands will support the audiovisual launch of Invention Story in the U.S. through its Kartoon Channel! AVOD/SVOD service, which is distributed across major cable and satellite providers and OTT platforms. Invention Story is already airing in such markets as Italy, Russia, Hungary and China.
The show is also on Kidoodle.TV, which has launched in all countries worldwide except China. In the U.S., Hispanic pay-TV leader Vme Media is distributing the show on English-language network Primo TV later this year.
Luana Perrero, Mondo TV’s head of content sales, said: “The launch of Invention Story on an innovative new free digital service that can reach just about every family in the whole U.S., is a cause for celebration. The arrival of Invention Story on Kartoon Channel! is an important strategic step for one of Mondo TV’s fastest-growing properties and we’re delighted to be working with Genius Brands on bringing this funny, smart and highly original new show to the vast U.S. audience.”
