(TORONTO, Canada- October 2, 2019) Canada’s leading kids’ production, distribution and digital company Sinking Ship Entertainment (SSE) is packing its bags for next month’s MIPCOM. This year, the company presents its most ambitious slate of programming yet with the return of several Emmy-award winning titles, a new 3rd party action adventure series with Netflix, and the highly anticipated release of a ground breaking new sci-fi series.
“We’re very excited for this year’s MIPJUNIOR and MIPCOM”, says Kate Sanagan, Sinking Ship Head of Sales and Distribution for the Americas. “We’re thrilled to present our existing and potential partners with an incredible slate of finished titles, several exciting projects in development and cutting-edge partnerships that demonstrate the vision for pioneering children’s television we uphold at Sinking Ship.”
Sinking Ship Entertainment will reveal its latest title Endlings during this year’s market. Set in the near future, Endlings is a sci-fi action series for families that sees the fantastical face off against the seemingly unremarkable. This intergalactic adventure explores themes of extinction, biodiversity, isolation, abandonment and rebirth as four kids discover that "endlings" doesn't have to mean the end. It can also mean a new beginning. The series’ partners include 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, NRK in Norway, and Gloob in Brazil. The first episode will be available during MIPJUNIOR, and SSE will be exhibiting at MIPCOM to meet with potential buyers. The first season of 12 X 22’ will be available for international broadcasters in 2020.
