Worldwide viewership of CG-animated adventure/comedy Lanfeust Quest from Gaumont Animation and India’s DQ Entertainment is set to grow, thanks to a number of new international broadcasting partnerships secured by Paris-based Gaumont.
Free-to-air broadcasters taking the 26 x half-hour adaptation of the bestselling comic and manga franchise Lanfeust of Troy include Disney Channel (Spain, German-speaking Europe and Turkey), TVE (Spain), ABC3 (Australia) and Disney XD (Netherlands).
For Pay-TV networks, Biggs Channel (Portugal) and Disney XD (Belgium, Italy, Turkey, Germany, Spain, Central Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa) have also acquired the series for kids 6 to 11.
Lanfeust Quest was commissioned by French broadcaster M6 in September 2013 and made its channel debut on September 25. Following the commission, Lagardere’s Canal J also picked up the series.
Directed by Antoine Charreyron (The Prodigies, Galactik Football) and Tarik Hamdine, Lanfeust Quest follows the adventures of 14-year-old Lanfeust as he becomes the only hero in charge of protecting Planet Troy.
