First international broadcast deal for Stan Lee’s Mighty 7

Mighty7_Laser-LordABC in Australia has become the first international buyer of comic book-inspired toon movie trilogy Stan Lee’s Mighty 7.

It will broadcast on children’s channel ABC3 later this year following a deal with distributor PGS Entertainment.

Mighty 7 comes drom Stan Lee Comics, a newly-formed joint venture between Genius Brands International, Lee’s POW! Entertainment and Archie Comics.

Genius recently merged with Andy Heyward’s A Squared Entertainment, which previously sold the property through its now-discontinued A Squared International division.

The toon features Spider-Man creator Lee himself in a role that sees him teach alien prisoners and their jailers how to work together and use their strengths to become superheroes.

“Australia is a great market for this property and ABC3 is the perfect fit,” said Guillaume Soutter, co-founder, PGS Entertainment. “Of course, Stan Lee has fans around the world, but viewers will be particularly excited to see this new trilogy of movies starring Stan himself.”
