Chinese media giant Tencent Video has announced a series of sales to international broadcasters for original series Super BOOMi, CoNaBLUE and A Squad (pictured).

Super BOOMi, a 52 x 11-minute CG show about a bear and his dog in a virtual reality game universe, was picked up by Canal+ in France in a deal secured by Nelvana.

KBS Kids in Korea acquired A Squad (52 x 11 minutes), which follows a rescue team focused on keeping a small town safe.

And adventure series CoNaBLUE (52 x 11 minutes) will soon be available in Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar through Medicorp’s digital entertainment service MeWatch.

Tencent also signed Monster Entertainment to handle international distribution for Mini Mind Warriors. The 52 x seven-minute series is inspired by video games and graphic novels, and features miniature heroes fighting against a group of monsters that seek to cause problems for kids.

These deals follow on the heels of recent news about co-production deals with European studios Sixteen South, Zeilt Productions and Silvergate Media. The partnerships are all part of Tencent’s multi-year strategy to expand internationally and make original programming for its platform.
