Mondo TV Iberoamerica has inked its first sales in the U.S. for all three seasons of Sissi the Young Empress and the first season of the action-comedy series Invention Story.
Through an agreement with the U.S. Hispanic market pay-TV company Vme Media, both Sissi the Young Empress and Invention Story will air on the English-language network Primo TV. The shows will be available for a two and a half-year period. The territories covered will include the U.S., Puerto Rico and all U.S. territories and possessions.
Sissi the Young Empress is based on a historical young empress who captured the public imagination well beyond her Austrian homeland. In this animated version of her story, Sissi discovers a magic bracelet that leads to exciting and unusual adventures as she seeks to help her many animal friends. In Invention Story, a fox named Kit comes up with an amazing new invention that impresses most of the rabbit residents of his adopted home Carrot Town—but inspires jealousy in a few. Conflicts and rivalries abound alongside funny situations and engaging characters.
Maria Bonaria Fois, CEO of Mondo TV Iberoamerica, said: “The sale of Sissi, one of our most popular animated shows, and Invention Story, a brand-new series that is enjoying a very strong response, to Vme is a major breakthrough for Mondo TV in one of the world’s most important markets. Vme is recognized as a leading player in the Hispanic pay-TV market with a strong reach. We are thrilled to be able to announce this news and certain that both Sissi and Invention Story will be enormously popular with Vme’s vast audience.”
