Paris, France-based prodco Alphanim has inked a deal with German broadcaster KiKA to air its 52 x 11-minute action-adventure, eco-themed kids series The Green Squad.
The latest deal adds to an expanding list of broadcasters that have acquired the series including France 5, RTBF (Belgium), Minimax (Central and Eastern Europe), Noga (Israël), Al Jazeera (Middle East), and Canal Plus (Poland).
The Green Squad, which is a copro by Alphanim (Gaumont Group), Europool and France Télévisions, follows the adventures of three siblings who use a global blogging network to save the planet and protect endangered species.
Along with new broadcasters, the series is also tapping into the consumer products market with a French licensing program (science games, arts and crafts, publishing, stationery).
Germany’s Europool brokered the latest deal with KiKA.
