We are very proud of this achievement and we’ve worked hard for this honour! With the combined efforts of our three studios located in Dublin, Manchester and Toronto, our cross continent teamwork has resulted in 11 greenlights this year, including PBS KIDS series Luna Around the World, Sadie Sparks for Disney Channel EMEA, a second season of Nickelodeon’s Nella the Princess Knight and season five of Disney Junior’s hit series Doc McStuffins. Huge congratulations to our gigantic Brown Bag family (now over 600 strong!).

9 Story Distribution International was also voted number three in the Hot50 Distribution category, moving up one place from last year. 9 Story’s Distribution arm has had a very exciting year, with their team firmly planted in Ireland, they have further strengthened their presence in the industry as a global player. And also adding to their success is the company’s ever growing catalog, which recently added the 52 x 11-minute Chinese/Welsh series Luo Bao Bei to the fold!
