Following multi-territory deals inked between France-based Newen Distribution and Disney Channel EMEA, animated series Loopdidoo and U.F.O. are set to debut in Central/Eastern Europe, Africa, Turkey and the Middle East.
Both series are produced by French prodco Blue Spirit Animation. The Loopdidoo deal covers the first two seasons of the seven-minute CGI-animated comedy aimed at kids four to eight. Produced in collaboration with France 5, Loodidoo premiered on Disney Junior this past spring.
U.F.O., also known as OVNI in France, is a non-dialog animated series for kids and tweens. It follows Coda as he travels from the Himalayas to China by way of Easter Island, where he encounters Noah’s Ark, Vikings and even Napoleon.
