Phoenix Rise, Alma’s Way, The Unlisted Deals Secured


Sinking Ship Entertainment has notched up deals for the teen adventure show The Unlisted, the live-action school drama Phoenix Rise and the animated preschool series Alma’s Way.

NRK in Norway picked up the BBC Studios Kids & Family series Phoenix Rise. Season one also previously sold to ABC in Australia and Yle in Finland.

The French Canadian broadcaster Télé-Québec acquired The Unlisted. Produced by Aquarius Films in Australia for the ABC and Netflix, the series is launching on January 8.

Sinking Ship Entertainment signed Metro TV as its agent for Alma’s Way in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Panama and Ecuador. The show is produced by Fred Rogers Productions in association with Pipeline Studios for PBS KIDS.

“We are pleased to see these shows continue to strike a chord internationally,” said Kate Sanagan, head of sales and distribution. “It’s a nod to their genuine appeal that goes beyond borders. Our dedication to quality content remains steadfast, as does our belief in the power of imagination, education and connection.”
