Manga Entertainment has appointed Reemsborko as the worldwide licensing agent for the Netflix original manga series "Cannon Busters."
The show is the latest creation from LeSean Thomas, the person behind "The Boondocks," "Legend of Korra" and "Children of Ether." After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the series secured distribution with Netflix to launch the show globally later this year. Reemsborko will look to uncover licensing deals for the property among a wide range of verticals including apparel, toys, collectibles and sportswear.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign by Thomas himself to produce a pilot episode in 2014, “Cannon Busters” has generated a dedicated cult following. The upcoming series will be launched in more than 190 territories globally.
"I am both humbled and excited about the opportunity to create something truly international in the growing, mainstream appeal of anime," says LeSean Thomas. "Both Netflix and Manga Entertainment have been integral partners in my vision for a truly globalized approach to Japanese animation production, and I am excited about what's to come for fans of anime with this fun, new entry into the medium."
Reemsborko has previous experience with manga licensing, having previously worked with companies like Crunchyroll.
