Sonia Fleck, CEO of Bomanbridge Media, said, “We are thrilled to be announcing these exciting sales from Bomanbridge’s ever-increasing content offering and look forward to the high-energy conversations around our MIPCOM slate this year. It is exciting to launch Paul Hollywood’s series Paul Goes To Hollywood, where we get to see Paul with food and motorcycles on the open roads of America, and good-spirited talks with celebrities such as Teri Hatcher (Desperate Housewives) and Lisa Kudrow (Friends). Further, not only have we felt the success of our food and travel series, but our factual and kids content have really taken off and continue to bring in more audiences.”
