FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AGORA, A2 MULTIMEDIA TO PRODUCE NEW ADDITION TO LONELYGIRL15 UNIVERSE, N1CKOLA, 1st POLISH SOCIAL SHOW SERIES

EQAL’s New International Venture to Launch This Month

January 21, 2009 – POLAND – EQAL, the social entertainment company founded by the creators of the Internet’s two most successful social dramas lonelygirl15 and KateModern, announced a license agreement with Polish producers Agora and A2 Multimedia for the new story in the lonelygirl15 universe, n1ckola. The new show produced by Agora and A2 Multimedia is based on the wildly popular lonelygirl15 social show series. n1ckola combines several genres, including reality, documentary and feature fiction with sensational themes.

More than 100 episodes of n1ckola will be produced, with each episode running from one to five minutes. The show will air four to five times each week, with the premiere episode of n1ckola airing on January 26 on the http://www.n1ckola.pl platform.

Through the licensing agreement, Agora will have rights to the lonelygirl15 brand name, logo, plot, characters and mythology. EQAL will consult with Agora on the new story, character creation and development, scripts and storyline.

Series sponsors include Microsoft, Hasbro, Polkomtel and Samsung.

“We’re thrilled to take the lonelygirl15 franchise to Europe,” said Greg Goodfried, COO, EQAL. “The show’s expansion into multiple international territories, including the UK, Italy and Poland represents the global excitement of online entertainment. Collaborating with Agora for this new project will allow our teams to offer the best in social show entertainment.”

EQAL’s success in creating online communities has come from maximizing the Internet’s capabilities in providing engaging, interactive experiences for viewers, while evolving and updating storylines based on audience feedback.

“This is an immense challenge,” said Maciej Wicha, director for multimedia and partnerships, Agora; A2 Multimedia Board Member. “We will be producing a completely new form of drama, which we are only beginning to learn about through the team at EQAL.

  2. Can anyone translate that for us?

    And I'm curious, that is Big Ben right? So perhaps it's set in London but is NOT in English?

    So curious!

  4. Yeah I got all excited looking for online translators because babelfish doesn't do Polish and the first one I used didn't say anything sensible.

    Google translators came up with that pretty easily. Of course, after the effort that was a bit disappointing....haha

  7. I used the google translator for that translation, which was much better than anything else I attempted.

  8. If N1ckola is just a play of Nickola this is interesting (from a babynames website):

    Meaning: Its source is Nikola, a Greek name meaning "Victorious people."

    Narrative: This name, like Berenice and Veronica, features an element derived from the name of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.

    (I don't have nearly as mad googling skills as Milo, especially when it's in Polish)

  9. This has obviously been in the works for a while since it's starting this month. Makes you wonder if the Italian show is being developed and won't be announced (at least in the US) until it's ready to launch.

    Having grown up going to a Polish church, I'm checking if my family knows anyone youngish who might be interested in the show and can translate.

  14. EQAL will be running three projects at once? WOW! Good for them. =)

  15. OH MY GOSH! I just remembered I have a really nerdy Polish friend in my French class that I may convince to translate!

  16. It being set in London makes sense, we have quite the polish influx in the UK, England.

  17. Polish native speaker here.

    "Wkrótce dowiesz się wiecej"
    actually means
    "You'll find out more soon".

    Have a nice day.
