‘We’re confident that Turner now offers a one-stop shop for buyers and we look forward to finding the best destinations for our shows,’ says Turner’s Humphrey Black.

Elsewhere, tbs comedy Search Party has been sold to All4 (UK), OCS (France) and Cellcom (Israel), with other deals set to follow.

Cartoon Network’s Ben 10 and The Powerpuff Girls have also been generating interest from international buyers, and have since been snapped up by Citv (UK), Gulli (France) and Stan (Australia).

“We’re thrilled to be sharing the early sales success for some of our key kids and entertainment series, as well as the extensive and highly appealing slate of programming we’ll be showcasing at MIPTV this week,” said Humphrey Black, VP of media distribution, Turner EMEA.

“We’re confident that Turner now offers a one-stop shop for buyers and we look forward to finding the best destinations for our shows, to complement their broadcasting on our own channels and platforms.”

Turner is also bringing a varied set of programming to MIPTV, including new dramas 4 Blocks (from TNT Serie in Germany) and Will, as well as comedies I’m Sorry and Those Who Can’t, Rick & Morty, Robot Chicken and Samurai Jack.
