Blue Ant Media of Toronto has acquired Marblemedia, also based in Toronto. The two companies will merge their production and distribution operations into a single entity. As part of the deal, Blue Ant has also acquired international sales firm Distribution360. The merged entity will have locations in Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and London. Beach House Pictures, based in Singapore, will continue to operate independently.
“Marblemedia has long been regarded as one of the most respected production and distribution companies in the unscripted and scripted space, having created huge hits for the biggest streamers and broadcasters in the industry,” said Michael MacMillan, CEO of Blue Ant Media. “Blue Ant Media is well positioned in its growth as an international media company with production, rights and an established global channels division, all operating at scale.”
