MIPTV Spotlight: 9 Story Media Group


CANNES: A 7-year-old girl travels to magical places with the help of her scrapbook in the series Vivi, on offer from 9 Story Media Group.

The show “uses handmade drawings and a collage style to create a charming look and feel,” says Alix Wiseman, the company’s VP of business development and acquisitions. “Vivi is all about a child’s imagination, free and unhindered by the constraints of adults or geographical boundaries.”

9 Story is also presenting the live-action tween series Monica Chef. “Part drama, part comedy, the series features original songs and a great story arc,” Wiseman says. “Monica Chef is produced in Spain, was commissioned in Italy and is distributed by an Irish/Canadian distribution company! This project is truly a global effort.”

There is also 3 Amigonauts, which Wiseman believes “will make for great viewing for older kids.”
