MIPJunior Spotlight: Attraction Distribution


For MIPCOM, Attraction Distribution is promoting its children’s and family content under its newly minted “a+ kids” label.

Highlights from the slate include Jenny, about a young girl whose life changes overnight when she is diagnosed with leukemia. A number of broadcasters are already on board, and the remake rights have been sold in Slovakia.

“The series Jenny is realistic and heartwarming,” says Xiaojuan Zhou, president of Attraction Distribution and executive producer of Attraction Kids. “One of our goals at MIPCOM is to find more remake producers, including for an English remake.”

The company’s catalog also has the slapstick comedy Pat & Mat, based on a beloved Czech animation brand, along with a collection of family movies. There are about 150 family films in the portfolio, most of which are live action.
