Digital publisher, Bookwire GmbH, and Banijay Kids & Family have partnered to produce and distribute audiobook content based on a selection of the latter’s intellectual properties.
Working with the Banijay Kids & Family team, Bookwire’s Paris office will produce immersive and engaging audio content, via its production solution, WAY (WeAudiobookYou), and distribute it to all listening platforms, from libraries to music-streaming platforms. Titles will include “When I Was Your Age,” “Street Football,” “Lolirock,” “The Unstoppable Yellow Yeti,” “Silverpoint” and “Totally Spies” and heritage series such as “The Ranch” and “Martin Mystery.”
“We are delighted that Banijay Kids & Family has placed its trust in us,” says Anne-Laure Gonet, country manager, France, Bookwire. “Our services, including WAY production solution and Bookwire OS have become the global market standard over the last few years thanks to the great commitment of our team and consistent investments. Our ambition in France is to open up new audio opportunities for all publishers in the market. We offer a full 360° audio service from production and distribution, to marketing, therefore enabling each publisher to launch and distribute its own audio titles.”
Set to be produced in French by early 2023, the audiobooks will be available in several languages and distributed worldwide by Bookwire.
“We were looking for an experienced audiobook partner with a proven international distribution track record,” says Annick Bizet, new business and strategic alliances director, Banijay Kids & Family. “Bookwire understands our need for high-quality audiobook production, as well as our strong international ambition. We are thrilled to expand the popularity of our series in audiobook format and bring them to fans and new global audiences.”
