9 Story Entertainment has recently announced that their international distribution arm, 9 Story Enterprises, will be expanding in order to include newly-acquired programming to their catalogue of quality titles, starting with the international distribution rights to Slap Happy Cartoon’s new animated series Nerds and Monsters, which was recently greenlit by Corus Entertainment. Led by Executive Vice President of Business Development Natalie Osborne, 9 Story Enterprises has become one of the industry’s leading distributors of children and family programming.
“This is a natural next step as we grow to becoming one of the industry’s largest distributors of children’s and family content,” said Vince Commisso, President and CEO, 9 Story Entertainment.
“We will be strategically acquiring content with both the production quality and entertainment value to fit the 9 Story brand and are delighted that Slap Happy’s Nerds and Monsters is our first acquisition,” said Natalie Osborne.
Nerd and Monsters is an animated comedy series aimed towards 6 – 11 year olds, focusing on a group of nerdy kids stranded on a fantastic uncharted island. The castaways must use nothing but their smarts to survive the relentless attacks by the island’s inhabitants – a bunch of hideous Monsters that are mistakenly threatened by the tween invaders.
“We’re excited to be teaming up with 9 Story,” said Greg Sullivan, Partner at Slap Happy Cartoons. “Their enthusiasm for the property and fantastic track record in distribution make it an ideal partnership, and we can’t wait for them to unleash these Nerds and Monsters into the global kids’ TV Market.”
