France 3 signs up firm's co-production with Aardman.

Family and kids entertainment specialist Decode Enterprises has signed another major sales deal for Chop Socky Chooks.

France 3 has acquired the 26x22-minute 3D animated series, which is a co-production between Decode and Aardman.

The deal was concluded by Emmanuelle Bon, Decode's newly appointed territory manager for French speaking territories, Scandinavia and the Benelux.

"We're very pleased to expand our relationship with France Television with this deal and to secure a strong broadcast platform for Chop Socky Chooks in France," said Neil Court, president of Decode Enterprises. "The French market continues to be one of our best and our shows perform very well there."

Cartoon Network (worldwide) and Canada's Teletoon have already acquired the show.
