Looking For/ All genres of programming for Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Nicktoons and TeenNick around the world. Borkent's shopping list is long, but his primary focus is on early pre-buys around preschool (curriculum-based, but not imperative) shows to service the brand's rapidly expanding nick Jr. network, as well as animated comedies, action-adventure and sitcoms for its TeenNick and Nicktoons channels. Shows should have a global appeal and formats should be easily adaptable for use in multiple regions.

Preferred Approach/ Borkent always looks forward to personal meetings during markets, such as MIPTV, but he's happy to take meetings in his new York office, where he can be contacted via email (jules.borkent@mtvn.com) or phone (212-258-8000).
