Toronto, Canada-based DHX Media has made two major sales to German broadcaster KiKA at MIPCOM.
The channel has picked up tween live-action series How to Be Indie and music-centered preschool series dirtgirlworld.
The purchases fall in line with KiKA’s stated aim of focusing on issues of integration and inclusion through their programming.
How to be Indie is a tween-based comedic live-action series that tells the story of the 13-year old titular character as she balances her traditional South Asian family with her new Western lifestyle. The series was produced by Toronto, Canada-based Heroic Film Company and currently airs on YTV in Canada, Disney Channel UK, ABC Australia, and Canal + in Poland among others.
dirtworldgirl blends traditional animation CGI and photomontage and features “real kids in real gardens having unreal fun.”
Currently it airs on Sprout in the US, CBeebies in the UK, CBC Canada and ABC Australia and is co-produced by Australia’s mememe productions and DHX Media.
