Paris-based Moonscoop is heading to Cannes this week, where it will be showcasing Turboten (pictured) developed with London indie I Can Fly and Burny’s Odyssey, after already inking a raft of both TV and digital broadcasting deals.
The company has sold seasons and two of Chloe’s Closet to Clan TVE in Spain and Canal Panda in Portugal. Fantastic 4 was acquired by new German broadcaster Yep, as well as French pubcaster France 4. The first three seasons of Code Lyoko and pre-buy of Burny’s Odyssey were negotiated with RAI Gulp. In Finland, MTV3 renewed Geronimo Stilton season two and in Poland Teletoon renewed Tara Duncan and Titeuf. In Sweden, SVT acquired Casper Scare School season two and in Greece, Megachannel launched Code Lyoko and Chloe’s Closet last month.
In the US, Moonscoop sold Toddworld and Dive Olly Dive! to Qubo, and Hispanic broadcaster Somos TV renewed Ava Riko Teo.
In Asia, a global contract was forged with Telco company Viettel in Vietnam for the entire Moonscoop catalogue (nearly 1,200 half hours), Disney Korea and Korea Telecom Hitel both acquired Chloe’s Closet season two and Somos TV, and a package deal was closed with Truevisions in Thailand for 350 half-hours (including Titeuf, Bunny Maloney, Ava Riko Teo, Dive Olly Dive, Gasp and The Davincibles).
On the digital front, Bangoo-branded SVOD apps are now published on the major Android digital stores and embedded and promoted on several kids tablets like the ones from Technofun and Lexibook.
