These new launches are in addition to the recent ones on Gulli in France, Nickelodeon in the UK and on Clan TVE in Spain. The series launched on Gloob in Brazil on April 14 and will launch on Eleven in Australia in late May.
The series has more than 70 broadcasters in more than 80 territories having snapped up the first season. The rise in popularity has led Rainbow and Lucky Punch to produce a second series, which is due for release in late 2014/early 2015 and a feature film, which is planned for a theatrical release in 2016.
Mia and me is a co-production of Rainbow, Lucky Punch GmbH – a joint venture between m4e AG and Gerhard Hahn, Canada ‘s March Entertainment, as well as ZDF German Television Network.
