MIPTV 2010: Classic grabs Nan & Lili

Company acquires worldwide TV and home entertainment distribution rights for new pre-school show.

Classic Media has strengthened its portfolio, sealing a deal for the worldwide TV and home entertainment distribution rights (excluding Middle East) for new pre-school offering, Nan & Lili.

Created for Al Jazeera Children's Channel, Nan & Lili is the first ever Arabic animation pre-school series. 200 three-minute episodes are currently available in three languages - Arabic, English and French - with a further 100 episodes in development for delivery later this year.

"We're delighted to be launching Nan & Lili at MIPTV and are very excited to be working with JCC on its first animated pre-school series," said Chloé van den Berg, EVP international at Classic Media. "Nan & Lili is a fantastic show with a unique animation style and a fresh approach to pre-school learning - offering entertainment whilst encouraging the valuable building blocks of problem-solving skills and emotional intelligence."
