Zodiak Kids is taking its preschool series Floogals to Australia, Italy and Gaelic-speaking UK.
The 52 x 11-minute series, which launched on US preschool net Sprout earlier this year, will be available on ABC (Australia), Cartoonito (Italy), DeAJunior (Italy) and BBC Alba (Gaelic-speaking UK). Additionally, an agreement was inked with NCircle for the show’s North American DVD rights.
These deals are in addition to current broadcasters Discover Kids (Latin America), TVO & Knowledge Network (Canada), Hop! Channel (Israel), Spectrum Film (Indonesia), YLE (Finland), Canal Panda (Portugal) and MBC (the Middle East).
Featuring a trio of tiny aliens on a mission to observe and experience Earth, Floogals mixes photo-real CGI and live action. It is based on the original concept from Dan Good and developed by Zodiak Kids Studios UK in conjunction with UK-based special effects studio Jellyfish Pictures, along with strategic investment partner Nevision Limited.
Current licensees for the property include master toy partner Just Play (the US and Canada), Jay Franco (bedding, homeware in the US) and Custom Personalization Solutions (bespoke online products).
Discovery Kids represents the show’s licensing rights in Latin America, while Zodiak Kids owns worldwide distribution and licensing rights.
