CAKE has picked up the distribution rights for Nickelodeon Latin America’s (Latinoamérica) hit musical teen comedy Kally’s MashUp in certain territories!
CAKE will oversee the exclusive broadcast rights in the U.K. and Ireland, Northern and Eastern Europe, Asia, Oceania, the Middle East and Africa. The 75×60-minute show debuted on Nickelodeon in Latin America in October 2017.
Kally’s MashUp has since been seen by more than 5 million viewers across the Latin American region, achieving the No. 1 position in Mexico among girls aged 7 to 14 years. Following its success, Nickelodeon Latinoamérica recently ordered more new episodes. A new line of consumer products inspired by the popular series will also be released in May 2018. “Kally’s MashUp: La música: banda sonora original de la serie de TV”, a album featuring 18 songs from the hit TV show, was released on Friday 9th March 2018 by Deep Well Records, under exclusive license to Sony Music Entertainment US Latin LLC. The album can be downloaded now at kallysmashupofficial.com.
Created by Anders and Anthony Falcon, Kally’s MashUp is inspired by the real life and musical trajectory of Adam Anders. The story follows the adventures of Kally, a 13-year-old music prodigy who tries to balance her life as a piano virtuoso with that of a regular teenager, after moving from a small town to the most prominent music university in the country. Although everyone thinks she was born to be a classical piano player, her true dream and passion is to be a pop star. It is co-produced by Nick LatAm, Anders Media and 360 Powwow, with Anders and Powwow CEO Daniel Gutman executive producing.
The music series features original songs composed by Anders, his wife, Nikki Anders, and his longtime collaborator, Peer Astrom. Anders also oversees all the music featured in the series.
Ed Galton, the Chief Content Officer (CCO) and Managing Director (MD) at CAKE, commented: “We were deeply impressed with the level of quality Adam and Daniel were able to achieve in this musical series. Kally’s MashUp has already achieved some impressive figures and its original musical score with songs shot in English gives this unique format huge global potential.”
Gutman noted: “It is a privilege for us as producers and for Kally’s MashUp as a uniquely original show to have CAKE as a travel companion to expand its international journey into new demanding territories.”
Anders, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Anders Media, added: “Working on something this fresh and exciting and at the same time uniquely personal has been a dream. We could not be more thrilled with everyone involved from cast and crew to our production partners, and are happy to add CAKE to the list of people adding real value to this project.”
