Paris-based Cyber Group Studios has locked in a number of new deals for animated preschool series Gigantosaurus. And its new show 50/50 Heroes (pictured) has been pre-bought by Disney.

New broadcasters to pick up the 156 x 11-minute dinosaur comedy include Channel 5 (Singapore), DR TV (Denmark), Kan (Israel), Knowledge Network (Canada), PTS (Taiwan), RTVE (Spain), RTS (Switzerland), TV Azteca (Mexico), TVP (Poland), SVT (Sweden) and Star Channel (Greece).

Gigantosaurus‘s first season is on SVODs Netflix and Disney+ already, as well as airing on Disney Junior worldwide. Seasons two and three are already in production simultaneously.

Cyber Group’s 52 x 11-minute animated comedy 50/50 Heroes has been pre-bought by Disney in Germany and Eastern Europe, after being commissioned by France Télévisions earlier this year. It follows two half-siblings who find out they have inherited powers from an ancestor, but they can’t use their abilities unless they work together.

In other sales news, HITN/EDYE (US) has picked up Leo the Wildlife Ranger and Mia; DHXTV (Canada) acquired Sadie Sparks; and Telequebec (Canada) has snagged Droners.

In Latin America, EBC TV Brazil and Canal Once (Mexico) acquired The Pirates Next Door and Mirette Investigates. In Europe, TVP (Poland) bought Tom Sawyer and Zorro: The Chronicles; TG4 (Ireland) picked up Taffy and Sadie Sparks; and Discovery Italy acquired Ernest and Rebecca.

In Asia, Channel 5 (Singapore) picked up Mirette Investigates, while True Visions (Thailand) acquired Zak Jinks and Leo the Wildlife Ranger. And in the United Arab Emirates, MBC Shahid and Majid both signed package deals for portfolios of Cyber Group content.
