Nelvana Enterprises has signed a number of international deals for its Beywarriors Beyraiderz series.
The 13 x half-hour animated series launched on January 4, 2014 on YTV in Canada. It then premiered on Cartoon Network in the US with a four-episode marathon on January 25. New broadcast deals include Gulli (France), Cartoon Network (Australia and New Zealand), Club RTL (French-speaking Belgium and Luxembourg) and Dreamia (Portugal).
The series follows three characters Sho, Jin and Leon, who are trapped in a strange parallel world. Once defended by the Six Mythic Beasts who upheld justice and brought prosperity to all through the battling BeyRaiderz tournaments, this world has since fallen into decay and ruin following the disappearance of the Mythic Beasts.
The series’ international broadcast deals coincide with the global rollout of Hasbro’s new Beyblade toy line.
