It’s another Emmy nomination for Oddbods as series inks new global deals

One Animation has been nominated for a second year running in the Animation Category of the 2018 International Emmy Kids Awards for its comedy series, Oddbods.

Last year, the non-dialogue show was recognised by the academy for Series One and this year, the nomination for Series Two joins a number of accolades and high profile partnerships being green-lit.

A new slew of deals with leading broadcasters is currently being signed across multiple platforms internationally.

A global deal with Netflix brings more Oddbods to entertain families worldwide this Halloween with a Party Monsters special as well as the Christmas special The Festive Menace.

The Emmy-nominated studio has also stuck a deal with the US entertainment giant Hulu to air Oddbods short form content and three Oddbods’ specials across its US streaming services.

On top of this , and bolstering One Animation’s global footprint, a deal has been inked in China with Hunan Broadcasting System’s digital platform Mango TV to air Oddbods Season Two and the Christmas special.

Michele Schofield, SVP content distribution and sales at One Animation is thrilled with the impact Oddbods is having on the global stage.

“We are on an incredible journey of rapid development and audience demand right now,” she said. “This second Emmy nomination is testament to the industry-leading talent of the incredible team powering our brand.

‘We are working tirelessly to ensure a full pipeline of market-leading content in formats which work across all distribution channels, so it’s great to have been recognised yet again by the Emmy team.

“The relentless appetite from consumers, facilitates us working with expert talent in the industry and the very best in class partners, enabling us to bring our much-loved and unique characters to millions of families – whether for snackable ‘on the go’ kids content or for longer format specials which will see the whole family gather together to watch.”
