Incredible Film has signed a distribution deal for the live action pre-school series "Saïd & Anna" (16x6,5’) with Swedish public broadcaster, SVT. Having secured the first global distribution deal for the series, the Dutch sales agent will present the series to more buyers at ATF in Singapore next week.

"Saïd & Anna", which had its premiere at MIP Junior this year, follows best friends Saïd (6) and Anna (7) who hang out every day in the repair shop, run by Saïd’s parents. While broken things from the locals are given a new life by using the right tools, the children also discover how to find solutions to their own challenges, in a creative and collaborative way, which inspires young viewers to do the same.

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, with international appeal. Following its Dutch launch, the series scored a market share of 49% in its first week on air.

"Saïd & Anna" joins Incredible Film’s varied slate of diverse films and series for ATF, including the on-screen adaption of the best-selling children’s book, "Miss Vomit and The Magical Ring" and two films from the animated Tummy Tom collection, "Tummy Tom and The Lost Teddy Bear", and "A New Friend For Tummy Tom".

Daniëlle Raaphorst, CEO of Incredible Film says “We are delighted to announce this partnership with SVT for 'Saïd & Anna'. SVT have an outstanding reputation and are the perfect home for the series. The response to this story so far has been incredible, and we’re thrilled to see so much interest in this series and it’s themes. We really look forward to sharing 'Saïd & Anna' and its important messages of diversity, kindness and acceptance with more global buyers at ATF next week.”
