French distributor Superights has picked up global rights to animated preschool series Emmy & Gooroo.
Superights inked the worldwide (excluding China and Spain) distribution deal with China’s Left Pocket Studio and Spain’s Tomavision for their 52 x 11-minute series. Online video platform Youku Tudou also serves as a co-producer in China.
Emmy & Gooroo follows five-year-old Emmy and her best friend, the furry creature Gooroo, as they venture through a magical forest.
The series is currently in production, with all 52 episodes to be completed by fall 2017. Emmy & Gooroo took home the MIP Junior International Pitch 2014 title and was also the winner of the International Kidscreen East Pitch-it Event that same year.
