L.A.-based MarVista Entertainment has inked new international broadcasting deals for Saban Brands’ boy-skewing action series Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers Super Samurai.
Broadcasters snagging the series include 24-hour kidsnet Boing (Spain), Venevision (Venezuela), Mega (Chile), and Nickelodeon’s Sonic (India).
The series will now reach more than 150 territories worldwide, which includes existing broadcasters such as Nickelodeon (multiple territories), Channel 9 (Australia), TV4 (New Zealand), Canal J and Gulli (France), Mediaset’s Italia 1 and Boing (Italy), Televisa (Mexico), SIC (Portugal), Groupo Bandeirantes (Brazil), America TV (Peru), TCTV (Ecuador), Corp Medcom (Panama), Telefuturo (Paraguay), Unitel (Bolivia), Intrasas TV (Nicaragua), Monte Carlo TV (Uruguay), and E-TV (South Africa).
After making its North American premiere on Nickelodeon US in February and on YTV in Canada, Power Rangers Super Samurai is expected to air globally this fall. Power Rangers Samurai debuted on Nick US in February 2011.
The latest sales follow on the heels of Lionsgate acquiring the North American home entertainment distribution rights to Power Rangers Samurai in a multi-year licensing deal, and further expanding the franchise, Saban is developing a Power Rangers live tour to reach US and European territories later this year and in 2013.
