Tara Duncan Scores Partners Around the World


Princess Sam Pictures’ Tara Duncan, which launched on Disney Channel France in the spring, has found broadcast partners in more than 80 countries around the world.

The series has been picked up by Disney Channel Japan and Benelux, RTS (Switzerland), DeAKids (Italy), Télé-Québec (Canada), RTÉ (Ireland), NRK (Norway), Nelonen (Finland), RTBF (Belgium), TVNZ (New Zealand), SIC K (Portugal), Gulli Africa and more.

The fantasy-adventure series centers on an ordinary Earth girl who arrives on the magical planet OtherWorld to learn how to manage her uncontrollable powers and protect her family. It is based on a young adult book series by Sophie Audouin-Mamikonian, CEO of Princess Sam Pictures.

“As the series is an entertainment program based on a literary work with strong values, we can approach a wide profile of broadcasters,” said Frederic Gentet, senior content sales manager. “At this stage, we have a good balance between the number of commercial and public channels.”
