Global co-pro Super Wings will premiere on German children’s channel KiKA on January 25, airing exclusively in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
In May, KiKA joined China’s Qianqi Animation, US-based Little Airplane Productions and South Korea’s FunnyFlux Entertainment, EBS and CJ E&M as a co-producer for the animated preschool series. Super Wings will air on the channel daily as a double feature during kids’ primetime viewing hours.
German brand management and media company m4e, which reps the property in the territory, has also signed on several Super Wings licensees Clementoni, including (puzzles and games), Amijoc/Beluga (beach and outdoor toys), Procos (party goods) and Famosa (plush).
Additionally, Alpha’s master toy line will be distributed, marketed and promoted in German-speaking territories by Giochi Preziosi Germany starting in March. Stadlbauer Marketing + Vertrieb will be responsible for sales under a strategic alliance with Giochi Preziosi.
Since its liftoff in 2014, Super Wings has premiered in more than 40 countries. The 52 x 11-minute series follows the adventures of Jett, a plane that travels the world delivering special packages to children.
