Paris-based PGS Entertainment has secured its first presale for the second season of Tat Productions’ The Jungle Bunch to the Rescue! with Germany’s Super RTL.
Currently in production, the new 52 x 11-minute animated season is based on original movie The Jungle Bunch: Back to the Ice Floe and is a France Télévisions commission.
Season one, which follows the comedic adventures of a group of animal characters including a penguin, tiger and gorilla, was developed by both Super RTL and France Télévisions.
Master Films is also back on-board as Tat’s co-producing partner for the series.
To date, the first season has been sold into more than 180 territories to international broadcasters such as France 3, Rai, TVE and ABC Australia.
PGS is also the brand’s worldwide licensing manager and holds all distribution and licensing rights to the franchise.
The new season comes as PGS looks to expand the global presence of its largely animation-based catalog.
It recently founded a new Hong Kong-based company, PGS H.K. Ltd, to look for opportunities to work with Asian content producers and provide direct manufacturing support to its growing L&M business in the region.
