Jungle Beat, the non-dialog animated series from South Africa’s Sunrise Productions, has been scooped up by Turner Broadcasting for Boomerang channels across Central and Eastern Europe from distributor Monster Entertainment.
Turner is set to premiere the third season (13 x seven minutes) in the third quarter of 2015, in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux and Eastern Europe.
Following its debut in these territories, the season will be licensed to free-TV broadcasters. VRT is already on-board for Flemish-speaking Belgium.
Jungle Beat focuses on different animals and bizarre situations they encounter in nature.
Ireland’s Monster Entertainment has sold seasons one and two to broadcasters in 182 countries, as well as 30 airlines. At present, season three is being completed with seasons four and five in production. Along with an active licensing program, the property also has theatrical screenings, an iOS and Android mobile game, and a digital kids’ club.
