Jetpack bags Oz, Kiwi kids shows

The Moe ShowJetpack Distribution has acquired rights to a pair of Australasian-produced children’s shows.

From New Zealand’s Pop-Up Workshop comes the 52x11mins live-action puppet show The Moe Show and from Australia’s 1440 Productions is the 26x30mins Heart & Soul.

The Moe Show follows a friendly monster that lives with his teddy in their treehouse. UK-based Jetpack takes worldwide distribution outside of New Zealand.

Heart & Soul, which launched on ABC3 last year, follows 30 school girls as “they brave tensions, line-up changes and heartbreak to triumph at some of the world’s top music festivals”.

The Moe Show and Heart & Soul are a perfect fit for our catalogue and are already performing strongly in their home markets and attracting attention from broadcasters around the world,” said Jetpack’s CEO Dominic Gardiner.

Jetpack launched last year as a partnership between Canada’s Nerd Corps Entertainment, France’s Samka Productions, and Gardiner Entertainment.
