NATPE Spotlight: Mondo TV

MIAMI: Among the NATPE highlights from Mondo TV is Treasure Island, an animated series that picks up where R.L. Stevenson’s classic novel leaves off.

“It is an ambitious co-production with RAI and is directed by the internationally well-known director Giuseppe Laganà,” says María Bonaria Fois, the general manager of Mondo TV Spain. The company is also presenting The Drakers, an action/adventure show meant for children between the ages of 6 and 10, and Sissi, the Young Empress, a girl-skewing program inspired by the real-life Austrian empress.

“We are looking for buyers who not only want to broadcast our shows, but are also interested in becoming our partners in the distribution of the toys based on the series, and all merchandising categories of our new properties,” says Bonaria Fois. “We expect to find new partners in order to further strengthen our presence in Latin America and the U.S. Spanish-speaking market.”
