Children’s entertainment creator DHX Media Ltd. has signed a raft of deals from its library of kids TV series with broadcasters in Asia as it prepares to attend this year’s Asia Television Forum.
In Korea, KBS and Kids Talk Talk have acquired Pirates – Adventures in Art with the digital broadcaster also picking up animated eco-centric series dirtgirlworld which has also sold to Mediacorp in Singapore alongside Martha Speaks, Poppetstown, Pirates – Adventures in Art and Watership Down.
In Malaysia, broadcaster Astro has licensed preschool shows dirtgirlworld, Pirates – Adventures in Art, POKO and Monster Math Squad, while in Taiwan, YoYo (Eastern Broadcasting Co.) has bought the new season of Super Why!.
Finally, Nickelodeon India has acquired factual series The Adrenaline Project and True Visions in Thailand has taken all seasons of Kid vs Kat.
Craig McGillivray, Territory Manager for Asia within DHX Media’s distribution group, said: “Asia is a significant market for our shows with broadcasters picking up a diverse range of product from our library. One of our key properties for ATF will be Rastamouse, which is performing very well in the UK on CBeebies and the iPlayer and attracting significant interest from licensees with several key categories already signed. We believe it would perform very well in Asia and are keen to speak to prospective broadcast partners.”
