Finland’s Gigglebug Entertainment has secured a bunch of new presales for its Gigglebug preschool toon, which is now in production for an April 2016 delivery.
Commissioned by YLE (Finland) and SRF (Switzerland), the 26 x five-minute series is now also set to air on SVT (Sweden), DRTV (Denmark), RUV (Iceland), TV2 (Hungary), HRT (Croatia), Ceska (Czech Republic), ERR (Estonia) and HOP! (Israel).
Based on a popular line of apps that have hit the 500,000-download mark, Gigglebug launches on-air in the wake of three new apps that are scheduled for global release next year.
The show stars a tiny creature whose infectious laughter unlocks the talents of his young forest friends. It’s written by creators Joonas Utti and Anttu Harlin, preschool pedagogist Tuire Harjola and Baboon Animation’s Jymn Magon and Mike de Seve.
Gigglebug Entertainment holds the international TV, app and L&M rights to the property.
