Studio 100's Blinky Bill travels to the Nordics with new broadcast deals

The show will be broadcast across Norway, Sweden and Finland thanks to a slew of new deals.

Studio 100 Media has signed various agreements bringing The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill to the Nordics. Public kids’ broadcaster NRK Super has just acquired the show about the cheeky Koala for Norway.

Prior to NRK Super’s acquisition their Swedish neighbour SVT Barnkanalen has also acquired the series, with Nelonen Media securing the rights for Finland last year. Home Entertainment and VoD rights have been sold to SF Studios and SVT Barnkanalen will begin airing Blinky’s adventures in the Nordics in summer 2017.

“We are pleased about the ongoing collaboration with our long term partners Nelonen Media, NRK Super and SVT Barnkanalen as well as SF Studios," commented Martin Krieger, head of global distribution at Studio 100 Media.

"All these channels and distributors are already home to other Studio 100 animation and live action shows such as Maya the Bee, Heidi, Tashi or Kosmoo and Nightwatch. Our team is confident that the Australian icon Blinky Bill will sweep the Nordics off their feet in this witty and cheeky CGI version."
