Amazon bags US rights to Sindbad

Kids-logo-460_2Sindbad_ZacAmazon Prime Video in the US has acquired rights to Sindbad & the 7 Galaxies.

The show comes from Creative Media Partners, which was created and is owned by former Disney Channels Worldwide boss Paul Robinson, and New Zealand-based Huhu Studios.

Germany-based Your Family Entertainment is selling the show in the US, and has also closed another agreement with Discovery Networks.

Digital distributor MoMedia has sold the show to ERT in Greece, while Hong Kong-based Lightning International has shopped it to Singapore’s ERT. Other deals have been struck with Middle Eastern broadcaster MBC3, India’s Sun TV and Nigeria’s Be. Television.

Sindbad follows a teenager who has special powers and a spaceship in his basement.

“As these deals confirm, pre-sales for Sindbad continue to build, with interest strong from both the digital and linear platforms,” said Robinson.

“These latest sales not only validate our positioning of the show as both a digital and traditional broadcast proposition, but also confirm that our commercial and creative instincts are sound.”
