Insectibles secures new global broadcast partners

Insectibles, an award-winning 3D animated series from One Animation, KiKA, Discovery Kids and ZCFE has secured new broadcast partners worldwide.

Earlier this year, the HD TV adventure series aimed at children aged six to nine, was named the number one rated show in Germany.

The series has since rolled out across France (Canal and Teletoon), the UK and Italy on Pop, Sweden (SVT), Portugal (SIC), New Zealand (Lightbox) and more. The series has rolled out across the majority of Amazon’s territories via its Amazon Prime Video Direct streaming service.

Insectibles will also roll out across multiple airline partners on 40 destinations worldwide.

Sebastian Debertin, head of fiction, acquisition and co-production at KiKA, said: “We showed our faith in Insectibles when we took the decision to put the show in our highly popular 7pm daily slot. Our faith paid off because now it’s one of the biggest shows in Germany.

“Undoubtedly a big pull for the show is the cinema-quality and 3D animation bringing the characters and storylines to life in a way we are used to in cinemas but which is not often seen on TV.

Sashim Parmanand, CEO of One Animation, added: “this year has been spectacular for us, with regular reports coming in about our show topping the charts first on KiKA and now in different countries around the world.

“Insectibles really demonstrates the technical animation expertise we have in-house. Creating stunning, visual content is something we like to do, so it’s gratifying to know it’s also commercially worthwhile as kids globally are now really engaging with it.”
