London’s Jetpack Distribution has picked up rights to LA-based DreamEast Pictures’ Valt the Wonder Deer.
The deal will bring 52 eps of the 2D-animated series to global territories excluding China, where it recently bowed on BTV Kaku Kids Channel and streaming service TenCent. (Valt scored nine million TenCent views in its first two weeks on the SVOD.)
Available in both English and Mandarin, the 52-episode series brings to life a Chinese myth about a nine-colored deer.
The first season was created by executive producer John Andrews (Beavis & Butt-Head and Daria), creative director Ron Myrick (Skylanders and Ben 10), character designer Buck Lewis (Gnomeo & Juliet, Alvin & the Chipmunks and Madagascar), and head writer Ann Austin (Power Rangers).
