Viacom International Studios has inked a deal with Awesomeness to handle international distribution for a large portfolio of series and films from the company, which focuses on creating original content for Gen Z and was acquired by Viacom in 2018.
Under this agreement, Viacom International Studios’ International Content Sales team will represent 18 Awesomeness TV series and 8 films. Specific titles include: the Emmy award winning series Zac & Mia; Light As A Feather, starring Peyton List; and You’ve Been Tagged, a social media thriller featuring Noah Centineo.
“As we continue to reach and engage Gen Z globally, we believe VIS’s expertise and large scale network of distribution partners can help us build our profile and expand our brand footprint worldwide,” said Zachary Slatter, Head of Distribution for Awesomeness.
While Lauren Marriott, Vice-President of International Content Sales for Viacom International Studios, said: “We are incredibly excited to add the Awesomeness portfolio of high quality and highly compelling scripted series and films to our distribution slate ahead of this year’s MIPTV. We look forward to giving our partners the opportunity to add even more Awesomeness to their schedules that will appeal to Gen Z audiences everywhere.”
