Paris-based animation prodco Télé Images Productions (part of Zodiak Kids) has secured presale deals for its latest animated series Secret Ranch with TF1, Teletoon and Equidia (France), public channels ARD and KI.KA (Germany), and DeA Kids (Italy).
The channels have committed to 26 x 22-minute episodes of the series focused on the adventures of four horse-loving teenagers, who create a secret ranch in the wild for rescued horses after rescuing an injured stallion.
Preproduction on the Zodiak Kids-distributed series has commenced and episodes will hit the international market in spring 2013. TF1 will handle video rights.
The deals add to Zodiak Kids’ growing list of programming titles.
