Bomanbridge secures KBS, EBS, CJ deals

Oddbods has been picked up by EBS

South Korean broadcasters including KBS, EBS and CJ E&M have picked up more than 200 hours of programming from Singaporean distributor-producer Bomanbridge Media.

KBS has acquired documentaries such as Baby Animals in the Wild and Queen of the Hunt, while EBS has bought Secret Lives of Owls and the second season of animated show Oddbods (60×7’).

Korean networks SkyTV and Kids1TV have also both acquired a series of five-minute shorts based on the Oddbods show, with the deals coming in the lead-up to the BCWW market that starts on September 5.

Elsewhere, CJ E&M has picked up programming for its English-learning channel GEM, including 30 hours of kids’ live-action and animation content such as Care Bears: Welcome to Care-A-Lot (26×30’) and the second and third runs of Scout and the Gumboot Kids.

In addition, JEITV has acquired 80 hours of factual entertainment content, including Chef In Your Ear (26×60’), while 4K art titles such as Florence & the Uffizi Gallery have been picked up by SkyTV as well as VoD platforms SK, KT, and LGU+.

“Bomanbridge is pleased to see the growth of activity in South Korea. Despite the popularity of their local Korean content, we managed to maintain a curated catalogue which spoke to the Korean audience.” said Sonia Fleck, CEO of Bomanbridge Media.
