  • March 31, 2009
Eqal -- the digital studio that created the hit Web-series lonelygirl15 and KateModern -- has announced a licensing agreement with entertainment company Shinto Tsushin to distribute lonelygirl15 and KateModern throughout Japan and to create original content under the LG15 franchise.

Under the terms of the partnership, Shinto Tsushin will distribute Japanese dubbed versions of lonelygirl15 and KateModern throughout Japan. In addition, they will produce and distribute an original LG15 social show that will take place in Japan.

Shinto Tsushin will work with a local production company to create a new social show to extend the LG15 franchise. The show will fit into the general LG15 mythology and Shinto Tsushin will be responsible for localizing the story and characters to Japanese culture and norms.

Eqal has a similar licensing agreement with Polish producers Agora and A2 Multimedia for the n1ckola social show, which is distributed in Poland and also part of the LG15 franchise.--Gavin O'Malley
