German broadcaster Super RTL has picked up the first 50 x 11-minute season and 2 x 22-minute specials of Chorion’s preschool series, Octonauts, with a second window to play on Disney Germany.
The deal, among Chorion’s first with the German broadcaster, combines TV, home entertainment and licensing & merchandising rights for the brand.
The TV series is planned to debut in Germany on Disney Junior this summer and on Super RTL in the fall.
The news follows the announcement of the signed agreement with Disney US for the premiere of Octonauts on Disney Junior next year.
Produced by Ireland’s Brown Bag Films, Octonauts launched on CBeebies in October 2010 and has since been commissioned for a second season.
