MarVista to sell ‘Rangers’ TV library

Saban Brands taps company to handle distribution

Saban Brands has tapped MarVista Entertainment to handle international distribution of its “Power Rangers” TV library.

Deal calls for MarVista to handle international TV sales for the library of 700 “Power Rangers” episodes, including 20 hours from the new series set to air on Nickelodeon and NickToons next year. MarVista will rep the show at the Mipcom sales confab in October as part of Saban’s broader campaign to revive the property as a TV series and through merchandising.

Saban re-acquired the Power Rangers from Disney in May (Daily Variety, May 14). Disney inherited the property that fueled Haim Saban’s early fortune with its 2001 purchase of Fox Family Worldwide from Saban Entertainment and News Corp.

Saban Brands was formed earlier this year as a unit of Saban Capital Group devoted to acquisitions of brands and existing franchises with worldwide and multiplatform potential.

The indie MarVista was founded in 2003 as a production-distribution banner by writer-producer Michael Jacobs and MarVista CEO Fernando Szew.
