Jetpack powers up with Justin Time

Justin Time for Jetpack Release - Sept 2014Fledgling children’s TV vendor Jetpack Distribution has scored a deal to represent Canadian-produced cartoon Justin Time.

The firm has taken TV and licensing rights to the Guru Studio’s 52x11mins show across CEEMEA (central and eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa). The series currently has a third season in development.

London-based Jetpack launched at Annecy this year as a venture between Samka Productions, Nerdcorps Entertainment and Gardiner Entertainment. Dominic Gardiner, the former Disney UK programming boss, heads up the firm as CEO.

Justin Time fits perfectly with Jetpack’s purpose and expertise – to source quality content, with strong production values from highly talented global producers such as Guru, who create animated series for some of the world’s top broadcasters,” he said.

Guru previously sold the show internationally in all territories.
