9 Story Media Group Licenses GET ACE and NERDS AND MONSTERS to Gloob Brazil
Toronto, Canada – May 19, 2015 – 9 Story Media Group is pleased to announce that it has licensed the animated children’s comedies Get Ace (52 x 11’) and Nerds and Monsters (40 x 11’) to Gloob, Globosat’s Brazilian children’s TV channel. The announcement comes shortly after LA Screenings last week. Both series will air in Brazilian Portuguese and are expected to premiere in January 2016.
Get Ace is produced by Galaxy Pop and premiered on Network TEN’s ELEVEN in Australia. In addition to Gloob, the series has also been licensed to Boing (France), ABC TV Australia, TVNZ (New Zealand), TVE (Spain), E Junior (UAE) and Zoom (Israel). The series follows the adventures of hapless, geek Ace McDougal who, after being accidentally fitted with a pair of hi-tech super-spy braces, finds himself thrown into a world of espionage and adventure.
Nerds and Monsters is produced by Slap Happy Cartoons for YTV (Canada), and is currently in production on a second season. The series has previously been licensed to CiTV (UK), ABC TV Australia, TVE (Spain), Canal+ Family (France and Africa), E-Junior (UAE), Noga(Israel) and MBC Kids (Middle East). The series tosses 3 nerdy kids and a thick-headed football star on a fantastic uncharted island. The tween castaways must use nothing but their smarts to survive the relentless attacks by the island’s inhabitants – a tribe of hideous but hilarious monsters. And lucky for the Nerds, these dim-witted monsters don’t have any smarts!
