Hoho Rights signs deal for popular pre-school show; Abadas expands global broadcast.

Abadas launches to DVD in UK and Australia

Dinamo Productions’ popular pre-school property Abadas will launch on DVD in the UK and Australia.

In numerous deals secured by Hoho Rights, the property has been signed with children’s DVD, download to own and download to rent specialists Abbey Home Media in the UK, and Roadshow Entertainment for Australia and New Zealand.

The deals were struck following the show’s successful broadcasts with CBeebies, S4C Wales, RTE Ireland and the Disney Channel in Australia.

The show that explores the diversity of language through play has enjoyed further international broadcast pick-ups from Al Jazeera in the Middle East, Hop in Israel, EBS in Korea and Truvision in Thailand.

Hoho Entertainment’s head of sales and acquisitions, Danielle Davies, said: "Ever since we launched Abadas, parents have been eager to get hold of DVDs for their children.

"We’re delighted to announce that with these DVD deals in place, fans in the UK and Australia will now be able to travel to the enchanted world of the Abadas whenever they want."

The Abadas are a group of magical animals that live on an enchanted island in the middle of the show narrator’s pop-up book.

Each episode follows the adventures of Hari the Hippo, Ela the Fox and Seren the Bat as they travel through the Abadas world in search of the word of the day.
