9 Story rebrands after investment

Peg + Cat9 Story Entertainment is rebranding as 9 Story Media Group following investment from ZM Capital and Decode co-founder Neil Court.

“9 Story Media Group better reflects the new structure of the company and the increasing diversity of the company’s business activities,” said Vince Commisso, president and CEO of 9 Story Media.

“While producing and distributing shows remain absolutely central to our business model, the new name better encapsulates our vision to become a global leader in kids- and family-focused IP.”

ZM Capital and Court both recently invested in the business and are now co-owners alongside 9 Story’s senior management team.

The Canadian company produces shows such as Daniel Tiger’s Neighbourhood, Wild Kratts, Numb Chucks, Arthur and Peg + Cat (pictured). It employs around 220 creative and production staff, and has produced more than 900 hours of half-hours.
