Global distributor, Jetpack Distribution, has inked deals with leading Australasian producers for the exclusive global distribution rights to kids’ shows ‘Heart and Soul’ and ‘The Moe Show’, the Company announced today.
Pre-school puppet live action series, The Moe Show (52 x 11’), created by Auckland-based production company, Pop-Up Workshop, follows the adventures of Moe, a friendly, furry monster who lives with his Teddy in their treehouse. The Moe Show follows Moe as he explores New Zealand meeting new friends and discovering all sorts about the places he goes to. Under the terms of the agreement, Jetpack acquires global distribution rights (ex. NZ) to The Moe Show.
In a further deal, Jetpack has picked up global distribution rights (ex. Australia) to two seasons of live-action tweenage series, Heart & Soul (26 x 30’), from Australian production company 1440 Productions. Recently a hit on ABC3 in Australia, the first season was quickly followed by brand new season launching later this year, Heart & Soul follows a band of thirty school girls as they brave tensions, line-up changes and heartbreak to triumph at some of the world’s top music festivals. Heart and Soul has been nominated in this year’s international EMMY awards for Kids’ Factual.
Commenting on the agreements, Dominic Gardiner, CEO, Jetpack Distribution said: “We are very excited to be representing these fantastic shows internationally. Pop-Up Workshop and 1440 Productions are first-class producers which both have a strong track record in creating shows which resonate with children and we are delighted to be partnering with them. The Moe Show and Heart & Soul are a perfect fit for our catalogue and are already performing strongly in their home markets and attracting attention from broadcasters around the world.”
