GBI targets Asia with Small Screen

US children’s content firm Genius Brands International (GBI) has recruited Small Screen Distribution to act as the company’s sales agent and distribute its content in Asia.

Small Screen is led by veteran content distribution exec Kerry Novick, who established the firm in 2004 to provide consulting services and sales representation in Asia for children’s animation producers.

The company will now work on securing a place for GBI’s series such as Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionaires Club and Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab on platforms in Asia.

Previously, Novick has forged deals with terrestrial channels and new OTT platforms in China, India, and throughout Asia on behalf of Canada’s Nelvana Entertainment.
