Paris-based distributor Kids First has inked broadcast deals for CG-animated series Hello Kitty: Super Style! in Europe, East Africa and North America.
New broadcast partners include Viaplay (Scandinavia, the Baltics, Poland and Benelux); Super RTL (Germany); Canal Panda (Portugal); Canal+ (Poland and Ethiopia), and CBC Kids (Canada). Aimed at kids five to eight, Hello Kitty: Super Style! (52 x 11 minutes) follows along as Sanrio’s iconic character tries on different personas—from explorer to chef—to help her friends in Cherry Town.
Parisian prodcos Watch Next Media and Monello Productions (owned by Banijay Group) are co-producing the series with Italy’s Maga Animation and Amazon Kids+.
An Amazon Kids+ original, Hello Kitty: Super Style! premiered on the platform in December, and pre-sales to M6 (France), Canal+ (France), Rai YoYo (Italy), Tiny POP (UK), Discovery Kids (Latin America), RTS (Switzerland) and Hop! (Israel) have already been signed.
Kids First distributes the series worldwide, except in the APAC region, where Japan’s ABC Frontier holds the rights.
