ELLA BELLA BINGO TRAVELS TO THE MIDDLE EAST

SINGAPORE, QATAR, WEDNESDAY, 4th DEC 2013: Singapore based August Media Holdings has announced that they have sold Season 1 of their popular pre-school animated series, Ella Bella Bingo to Doha, Qatar based, Al Jazeera Children’s Channel (JCC), now known as Jeem TV.

This deal comes just 3 months after the news of Norwegian broadcaster, NRK, optioning another 52 episodes of Ella Bella Bingo. This agreement gives JCC exclusive Arabic language rights over Ella Bella Bingo in the Middle East and North African countries.

Co-produced by August Media Holdings and Norway’s Kool Produktion AS, Ella Bella Bingo is targeted at pre-school children and follows the adventures of happy-go- lucky Ella and her friends. Directed by the BAFTA winner and EMMY nominated director, Ginger Gibbons and scripted by the acclaimed writer Sam Barlow, each 7 minute episode is about how Ella uses her boundless creativity, infectious enthusiasm and a never-give-up attitude to solve everyday problems in spectacularly innovative ways.

Jyotirmoy Saha, CEO and Founder of August Media Holdings said, “After its huge success in the Scandinavian countries, we’re excited about Ella Bella Bingo’s journey to the Middle East. What is truly wonderful about this series is that children all over the world can relate to it, geographical and cultural barriers notwithstanding. I am sure that Ella will always continue to delight and inspire children wherever she goes. We look forward to extending this relationship with JCC over the next seasons too.”

Frank Mosvold, the Creator and Executive Producer of Ella Bella Bingo said, “Ella Bella Bingo has a talented creative and production team scattered in different parts of the world - Norway, Singapore, England and India. Now I am excited to see Ella travelling to yet another exciting destination - the Middle East. Together with August Media Holdings, I wish Ella Bella Bingo bon voyage.”

Following the huge reception of its first season, Ella Bella Bingo already has published books, iOS apps and DVDs in the market.

The 2nd season of the show has just finished production and is expected to hit TV screens in Scandinavia and the ASEAN region during the first quarter of 2014. The 3rd season is already under production and will progressively be ready starting the summer of 2014.
