9 Story Enterprises acquires worldwide distribution and licensing rights for Haunted Tales for Wicked Kids.
Toronto, Canada -- 9 Story Enterprises acquired worldwide distribution and licensing rights (excluding Brazil) to the animated comedy series Haunted Tales for Wicked Kids (Haunted Tales, working title) (40 x 11’). The series is produced by Glaz Entertainment (Brazil) and currently airs on Cartoon Network Brazil. Cartoon Network Latin America is also set to premiere the series this Halloween.
Haunted Tales for Wicked Kids quickly became a hit series in Brazil where it was the most viewed Pay TV program for kids ages 4-11 for the months of April, May and June earlier this year. It was also the first animated show to reach this coveted top spot after just one month of airing, and the first Brazilian animated series ever to reach the top of the chart.
Targeting an 8-12 audience, Haunted Tales for Wicked Kids follows Pepe, a 12-year old boy who helps out at his grandmother’s potion emporium. Along with his friends, Pepe constantly finds himself involved in offbeat adventures and hilarious, extraordinary situations – usually caused by his own silly misuse of his grandmother’s magical artifacts!
“Haunted Tales for Wicked Kids embraces an offbeat and edgy style of humour that has found a real following with today’s kids,” said Natalie Osborne, Managing Director, 9 Story Entertainment. “This unique series is a fantastic addition to our portfolio and we are excited to bring it to an international audience.”
“Haunted Tales for Wicked Kids has been a huge success in Brazil, and we are thrilled that 9 Story will be expanding its distribution,” said Paulo Boccato, owner of Glaz Entertainment. “9 Story has a tremendous reputation within the industry and we’re so pleased to be partnering with them on this show.”
