Paris-based producer/distributor GO-N Productions has licensed its hit animated comedy Zip Zip to broadcasters in Spain and Central Europe.
AMC Networks has acquired the 52 x 13-minute 2D series for its children’s channel Megamax, which will soon air the program across Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Moldova.
Meanwhile, RTVE has snapped the show for its leading kids channel Clan in Spain.
With the new deals, the reach of Zip Zip has expanded to almost every European, Middle Eastern, Baltic, Scandinavian, Latin American and Asian territory worldwide.
The series is currently airing in more than 100 countries by broadcasters including Disney Channel (France, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Israel, India, South East Asia, Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, Latin America), SuperRTL (Germany), SIC K (Portugal), SVT (Sweden), RUV (Iceland), ETISALAT (UAE), ITI Neovision (Poland), TV5 Monde and DSTV Kids (Angola and Mozambique).
Created by GO-N co-founder Anne de Galard and targeting six- to 10-year-olds, Zip Zip follows a group of forest animals who trade in wilderness living for a more comfortable life in the city by disguising themselves as domestic pets.
As the brand grows, a series of 15 short-form Zip Zip webisodes are currently in the works along with a new website and YouTube channel.
