Barcelona: Imira Entertainment, Spain’s leading production and distribution company specialising in youth programming, has signed a number of programming sales in Asia from its animation slate. The deals boost Imira’s relationships with broadcasters in the region ahead of its attendance at ATF next month.

Sandra, the Fairytale Detective has proven particularly popular in Asia, as it has done in other international markets. We’ll be attending ATF looking to expand our relationships in the region, not only with broadcasters, but with production and licensing companies in the region, as acquiring third party properties for representation in Europe and Latin America is a key focus for us.”
