Saban Brands has inked a new broadcast distribution agreement for its animated preschool series, Julius Jr., to air on Disney Junior in Italy.
The series, which is inspired by the characters of Paul Frank, will premiere this spring. The deal will also expand to additional countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in the near future. MarVista Entertainment, the series’ exclusive international television distributor, negotiated the agreement in partnership with Saban Brands.
Julius Jr. first premiered in the US on Nick Jr. in September 2013, and will also premiere on TF1 in France and Discovery Kids Latin America later this year.
