Global broadcasters pick up Totally Spies season six
Zodiak Kids has inked global broadcast renewals for season six of Marathon Media-produced girl-centric animated series Totally Spies! (26 x 26 minutes).
The hit action comedy’s original commissioning broadcaster, TF1 in France, has picked up the brand-new season along with Nickelodeon for German-speaking Europe, Benelux, CE Europe, Nordics, CIS, SE Asia and Africa, and Disney France.
Supporting the show’s cross-platform approach, an original four-month promotional event slated to culminate at Versailles in 2013 features a Versailles-themed movie, interactive app and treasure hunt, will launch in addition to updates for the brand’s successful Facebook RPG, Totally Spies! Fashion Agents.
The new season is set to debut at MIP Junior next month. With 156 episodes, Totally Spies! is now the longest-running French animated series and has been one of TF1′s top-performing kids show since its launch in 2001. The series has also expanded into mobile apps with last year’s release of Totally Pinball Party.
Zodiak Kids handles all TV rights for the series while consumer products rights are managed by Zodiak Kids CP Paris.
