Grupo Neptuno To Distribute ETB Catalog

Barcelona-based Grupo Neptuno has completed a major deal with Basque television producer Euskal Irrati Telebista (ETB) for the distribution of its catalogue worldwide, excluding Latin America and Spanish-speaking stations in the United States. ETB's complete line up of more than 1,000 hours of documentaries, entertainment, animation, feature films and live-action series will join Grupo Neptuno's existing catalog, which includes the preschool series CONNIE THE COW, distributed by AAC Kids and TV-Loonland, and the Flash animated series 2020, a co-production with Megatrix. "We are increasing dramatically our catalog of programming for the new season and ETBs quality portfolio fits very well in our current marketing strategy," stated Cristina Brandner, Managing Director of Grupo Neptuno. Other subsidiaries of Grupo Neptuno are television production company Bolero Films and Animation World, a supplier of animation production services to international producers.
