Entertainment firm T&B Media Global (Thailand) Co Ltd has signed a four-project co-production deal with WingsMedia, a member of Oriental Pearl Group and a wholly owned subsidiary of China’s second-largest media consortium, Shanghai Media Group.

The deal was struck at WingsMedia’s “Integration – Innovation New Content and IP Cooperation Release & Open Partnership Conference” in Shanghai on June 11.

Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp, founder and CEO of Shellhut Entertainment Co Ltd, owner of the famous Thai animated series “Shelldon”, is a major stakeholder in T&B.

The two companies announced plans to produce four projects together.

There will be three feature films – the live-action romantic comedy “Start It Up”, the animated feature “Silk Road” in partnership with The Monk Studios, and “Arthur and the 7 Chicks”, an animated feature being produced by RiFF Studio. 

The two studios are among the leading animation firms in Thailand and have worked on numerous international projects. 

The fourth project will be an adventure TV series entitled “The Snapventure”, Dr Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp said.
