International sales agent Incredible Film announces a new distribution deal with beIN Neo (part of the beIN Media Group) for the live action pre-school series "Saïd & Anna" (16x6,5’). beIN Neo will handle distribution of the series across MENA territories, where Saïd & Anna will be available in Arabic, English and French on Free to Air, Pay TV and VOD.

"Saïd & Anna", which has been nominated for this year’s Banff World Media Festival‘s Rockie Awards, follows best friends Saïd (6) and Anna (7) who hang out every day in the repair shop, and learn how to find solutions to their own challenges, in a creative and collaborative way. The live-action series is a coproduction between three public broadcasters – the Netherlands’ EO / NPO Zappelin, Germany’s SWR / Kika, and Belgium’s VRT / Ketnet – offering original and high-quality live action content for young audiences. The series incorporates important themes including reflecting a diverse and inclusive reality and environmentalism. Having already secured distribution in Norway and Sweden, this new deal reflects the global appeal of the series, and its capability to travel across territories and engage international audiences.
