HIT Entertainment’s new animation Mike the Knight has been presold to four further territories.

The medieval preschool series has been snapped up by ABC Australia, SVT Sweden, DRTV Denmark and NRK in Norway, bringing the total number of presales to seven.

The CGI series, co-produced with Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Studio, will premiere on Treehouse in Canada this September, TF1 in France in October and CBeebies in the UK in November.  The four new territories are due to launch the series shortly after.

HIT will be showcasing the series’ first full episode at MIPTV next week, where buys will be introduced to the 10-year old titular character that is destined to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a brave and noble knight.

Other shows from the HIT library heading to MIPTV include Thomas & Friends series one through 15, Fireman Sam series one to eight, the first six seasons of Angelina Ballerina and Bob the Builder series one through 18.

In its capacity as distribution agent, HIT will also enter MIPTV with an additional 65 episodes of CGI preschool series MuMuHug from Taiwan’s SOFA Studio, the second series of underwater CGI animation Shelldon from Thailand’s Shellhut Entertainment and further episodes of Little Charley Bear from Chapman Entertainment.
