Global brand management company Genius Brands International has secured a multiple territory broadcast licensing agreement for Stan Lee's Mighty 7 (Slam 7) with the pan-regional Cartoon Network Latin America.
The deal, concluded by GBI's Latin American sales agent Zasha Robles, will bring the animated superhero movie across the Spanish-speaking region.
"Zasha's deal with Cartoon Network Latin America rounds out the global reach of Mighty 7, with GBI having already secured distribution throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Canada and the United States earlier this year", said Andrew Berman, senior VP of global sales, Genius Brands.
The animated movie, the first of a trilogy, stars Stan Lee and features an all-star cast including Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings), Jim Belushi (The Defenders), Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Darren Criss (Glee), Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) and Teri Hatcher (Desperate Housewives).
"I am so excited to be able to expand this project throughout Latin America," said Stan Lee. "For this film, I was able to create a unique group of superheroes that I'm thrilled to be able to share throughout 42 new territories. Thanks to our partnership, we can now provide an innovative and action packed story to all in an entirely new region."
