Montreal, Canada-based Attraction Distribution has signed multiple new broadcast deals for live-action tween series Jenny from fellow Canadian studio Avenida Productions.
The 40 x 13-minute series follows a 13-year-old aspiring dancer after a leukemia diagnosis. Slovakian broadcaster JOJ TV snagged remake rights to the show, and is set to premiere the new local version this year. International broadcasters Kika (Germany), YLE (Finland), Globoplay (Brazil) and Canal+ (France) have acquired both seasons, but no air dates have been announced yet.
Produced for French Canadian channel Unis TV, Jenny is the first kids series the channel commissioned and was financed with participation from Canada’s Telus Fund, the Shaw Rocket Fund and the Bell funds, as well as tax credits from Quebec and Canada.
Attraction Distribution represents more than a dozen kids and family properties, including preschool stop-motion series Wumpa’s World (52 x 15 minutes), children’s 2D-animated Doggy Day School (52 x 11 minutes) and mixed-media series Fergie (12 x 20 minutes).
