Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) is presenting a wide range of content from Nickelodeon, MTV, Channel 5, Spike, BET, VH1 and Comedy Central to MIPTV buyers in Cannes this week.
Headlining Nickelodeon's portfolio is the networks latest live-action series Hunter Street, which is making its international debut at MIPTV.
The Blooming Media-produced Hunter Street (pictured) debuted in the US on March 13. Shot in Amsterdam, it combines the iconic city’s setting with Nickelodeon-style comedy, mystery, action and adventure. The series was co-developed with the Nickelodeon Netherlands series, De Ludwigs and will air on Nickelodeon international channels this spring.
Also on Viacom International Media Networks’ (VIMN) kids' MIPTV slate is the buddy comedy Bunsen is a Beast and Nickelodeon's newest animated preschool series, Nella the Princess Knight. Both series debuted earlier this year in the United States to more than 1.1 million total viewers respectively.
VIMN is also selling Comedy Central’s adult-themed animation Jeff & Some Aliens and Lorne Michaels- and Joason Sudeikis-produced sitcom Detroiters; and MTV reality series Ex on the Beach, Catfish: The TV Show and Are You the One?.
Debuting on the unscripted front are finished and format rights to Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, in which the unlikely pals host dinner parties for their celebrity friends.
Another major format is Spike’s in-car, karaoke-style format Caraoke Showdown, while Get Your Tats Out: Kavos Ink is a UK format from Viacom-owned terrestrial Channel 5. Joining them on VIMN's MIPTV 2017 slate is Lip Sync Battle and Inside.
“With an extensive slate of fresh and innovative programming and formats – spanning kids, general entertainment, scripted and an increasing amount of high-quality factual – Viacom’s portfolio at MIPTV offers something for every audience and schedule,” said Caroline Beaton, Senior Vice President (SVP) of international programme sales.
