France TV distribution has picked up the worldwide media rights to two new animated kids shows, Super Caribou and Grosha & Mr B. (pictured).
Produced by Paris-based film prodco Autour de Minuit, the 52 x 11-minute Super Caribou is based on the book Jean Michel le Caribou by Magali Le Huche. Aimed at five- to eight-year-olds, the series takes place in a small town where the residents are always getting into trouble and a super sensitive superhero needs to save them. It will launch first on France Télévisions.
Autour has a catalogue of nearly 300 films, including Logorama which won the Oscar for Best Animated Short in 2010.
Meanwhile, Grosha & Mr B. is an original concept produced by Paris-based Le Station Animation. The 52 x 11-minute series brings together two cat detectives who have two very different methods for solving wacky criminal cases. It is currently in production for French broadcasters Canal+ and Télétoon+, for ages six to nine.
Both productions will be available at MIPTV in Cannes, France next month.
France TV Distribution has also has its hands full recently on the licensing front as the French licensing agent for Cottonwood Media’s tween drama Find Me In Paris, and the licensing agent for eOne’s PJ Masks brand in France.
