(TORONTO, Canada- September 24, 2019) Sinking Ship Entertainment (SSE) has inked a deal with long-time partner Gloob for the upcoming sci-fi adventure series Endlings. Gloob has signed on for exclusive broadcast rights in Brazil for the first season of the new series. The show will launch in 2020.
“We have an amazing and long partnership with Sinking Ship that reinforces our common vision regarding Gloob’s editorial line. We believe in the power of the stories they want to tell - and that’s why we acquired Annedroids and Odd Squad, making them huge successes amongst Brazilian kids. We’re pleased to join them in Endlings, another high level and innovating project,” says Tatiana Costa, director of Gloob and preschool network Gloobinho.
Set in the near future, Endlings is a sci-fi action adventure series for families that sees the fantastical face off against the seemingly unremarkable. Gloob joins nine international broadcast partners including Hulu and Universal Kids in the US, CBC and SRC in Canada, CBBC in the UK, NDR in Germany, ABC in Australia, SVT in Sweden, and NRK in Norway.
“Gloob has been a wonderful partner in Brazil on some our other series, including Annedroids and Odd Squad. We are thrilled to have them join the launch of this groundbreaking new series, and look forward to introducing Endlings to kids and families across Brazil.” says Kate Sanagan, Sinking Ship Head of Sales and Distribution for the Americas.
Sinking Ship Entertainment will be showcasing the series at MIPCOM next month, with the first episode screening at MIPCOM Junior. The first season of 12 X 22’ will be available for international broadcasters in 2020.
