Distributor PGS opens Asian division

The Little PrinceFrance-based distributor PGS has opened an Asian unit to sell its kids content into the region.

PGS H.K. will be a separate entity to the Paris based PGS. It will, the company said, also work with local content providers and provide manufacturing support to the main PGS company’s licensing and merchandising operation.

Guillaume Soutter, co-owner and co-founder of PGS has relocated to Hong Kong to run the new unit.

“Asia has been a key part of PGS’s development over the past five years. By establishing a permanent presence and dedicated staff in Hong Kong we are able to provide producers we work with the kind of representation they need in the region while being closer to our growing Asian client base,” he said.

PGS has Asian distribution rights to shows including Method Animation’s Heroes United and the third season of The Little Prince and TAT Productions’ The Jungle Bunch.
