Mondo TV Iberoamerica Sends Sissi the Young Empress to the U.S.


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.”
