Foothill Showcases A Bevy Of New Programming
Including Young Dracula & The Assistants From
It's Exclusive Representation Of Content Titles


Brent's Dream - A Spike Team Special
 
Foothill Entertainment, and its affiliate Foothill Europe Limited, attend MIPJunior with an expansion of its catalogue of children's and family programming, fuelled by approximately 1,500 episodes of children's and family programming from London's Content Media library, which it represents as its exclusive Sales Agent. Two of the titles showcasing at the MIPJunior screenings are Young Dracula and The Assistants.

Also included in the Content Media are other high-end live action series such as Even Stevens and 100 Deeds For Eddie McDowd, as well as the animated classics Yoko! Jakamoko! Toto! and Robotech. The addition of these titles represents a major expansion of Foothill's distribution arm. Linked to its representation of its increasing roster of third party product, the company has promoted Elizabeth Stephens to Director of Sales and Development. Stephens previously acted as Foothill's Sales Coordinator. In this new role, Stephens will play a major part in the sales and marketing of the newly acquired Content Media titles as well as continuing her involvement with the Foothill development slate. She reports to Company President, Jo Kavanagh-Payne.

The company also launches at MIPjunior the second season of the volleyball and Olympic themed series, Spike Team produced by Andrea Lucchetti's production company Lucky Dreams, in association with RAI Fiction, co-funded by the Paralympic committee, together with companion special Brent's Dream, also commissioned by the International Paralympic Committee.

Foothill also bows newly acquired titles from Australia's 1440 Productions, the pre-school series Funny Face and the teen oriented, Sealed Section, along with Rollie & Friends, the CGI pre-school series featuring Rollie the Roller Coaster and the other rides at Sunshine Cove amusement park, together with new material from Boy and the Dinosaur, the series from UK's 1461 Limited. Boy and the Dinosaur was the Third Most Viewed show at last years' MIPJunior screenings and that has garnered pre-sales from several major international territories.
