9 Story Distribution International has acquired three new children’s series for international distribution, leading up to this year’s Kidscreen Summit. In detail, global distribution rights have been acquired for: “Andy and the Band” (15x14’), “Weird Waters” (60x7’) and “Bad Nature” (25x5’).
Produced by Ninja Pig Productions and Three Arrows Media, “Andy and The Band” is a hit live action series recommended for ages 4-8 that follows an aspirational, eclectic and super talented band known as “The Odd Socks”. 9 Story has acquired worldwide rights for the series, excluding the UK. The show is currently airing on CBBC and CBeebies in the UK.
The company has also acquired worldwide distribution and merchandising rights for the CGI animated fantasy series “Weird Waters,” targeting kids ages 4-7. Produced by Wayletta Productions, Meticulous Media and Moondog Animation Studio, and represented by Courageous Artists, the series follows three Best Fish Friends Forever (BFFFs). Two tropical fish, BZ and I.M. Tiger, accidentally find themselves in the deep end of a magical pond. Along the way, the duo becomes friends with Jam, who sweeps them away on a series of unbelievable adventures. Through hidden realms, crazy monsters and ancient mysteries these friends learn that growing up is the wildest ride of all.
Lastly, through a unique hybrid of live action animals and state of the art CGI animation, “Bad Nature” answers all of the wonderfully weird questions about animals. The series, which is recommended for kids ages 6-11, follows Marv the Mandrill, Gloria the Puma and a madcap menagerie of misfits. “Bad Nature” delves into all the disgusting and yet amazing things animals do. Produced by Rebel Television for Sky Kids, the series shares the remarkable journey that brings viewers into the hideous world of Bad Nature. 9 Story acquired worldwide distribution rights, excluding the UK, from Bristol-based Rebel Television.
