Ahead of its first outing to MIP Cancun (Nov. 15-17, www.mipcancun.com), Monster Entertainment has closed a deal with US media corp Olympusat which will bring much of its catalog to screens in neutral Spanish.
The agreement includes new series Brewster the Rooster (commissioned by RTE and recently picked up by ABC Australia, YLE Finland and JY Animation China), Misho and Robin (picked up by JY Animation China and HRT), Jabu’s Jungle (picked up by Gulli and Econet, currently the top rated series on SABC South Africa), Cleo (currently the top rated series on Clan TV Spain), as well as Fumpy Facts, Kelvin Magnetic: The Voltakid, Planet Cosmo, Rocka-Bye Island, Terror in Doomsville and The Preschoolers.
These series will join Monster’s existing neutral Spanish-available catalog, including preschool hit The Day Henry Met…? (no. 1 rated pre-k series in Australia, airs internationally on Nick Jr.), I’m a Monster and I’m a Creepy Crawly, which will be introduced to buyers at MIP Cancun.
Monster also offers a number of non-verbal animated series — such as Pikkuli, Harry & Bip, Eskimo Girl, FlipFlap, Luchien, Hullabalooba, Outopus, Gazoon, Monster in a Box, and Originalos — and music programs available in Spanish.
Based in West Palm Beach, Florida, Olympusat is an established leader in Hispanic television and media through its 70-plus SD and HD Spanish and English-language networks, including movie channel Cine Mexicano, Ultra HD channel Plex, and recently launched white label OTT VEMOX.
