Sinking Ship Closes New Raft of International Sales


Sinking Ship Entertainment has sold five hit series to broadcast partners in Australia, Belgium, Canada and China.

In Australia, ABC acquired BBC Studios Kids & Family’s Phoenix Rise, following six students who form an unbreakable bond as they navigate the trials and tribulations of school life.

Belgium’s RTBF picked up the live-action math comedy series Odd Squad, co-produced by Fred Rogers Productions and PBS KIDS, and the teen mystery show The Unlisted, from Aquarius Productions.

TFO in Canada bought Dino Dan, which sees a paleontologist-in-training take a journey to a world where dinosaurs roam freely.

In China, streaming platform Youku acquired seasons three and four of Dino Dana, a sequel to Dino Dan originally produced for Prime Video and TVOkids. The first two seasons launched on Youku last year.

“We are delighted to announce these latest sales, which highlight Sinking Ship Entertainment’s commitment to delivering exceptional content that engages and educates children across the globe,” said Kate Sanagan, head of sales and distribution. “The partnerships with all of these broadcasters signify our collective efforts to create meaningful entertainment experiences for young viewers, fostering their curiosity and enriching their understanding of the world.”
