AMC acquires rights to Studio 100’s Nila Holgersson and Blinky Bill

Studio 100 has scored an agreement with AMC Networks International to broadcast animated series Nils Holgersson and Blinky Bill in eastern European territories including Hungary, Romania, Moldova, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ex-Yugoslavia including Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Croatia, and Slovenia.

AMCNI CE has acquired the exclusive rights to distribute the shows via cable, satellite and terrestrial television. Both shows will be completed in summer 2017 and will premiere on Minimax from June 2017 onwards.

“We are delighted to continue our long-term cooperation with AMC Networks International – Central Europe, which are already home to our CGI shows ‘Vic the Viking’ and ‘Heidi’ as well as our live action mystery series Ghost Rockers," commented Martin Krieger, head of global distribution at Studio 100 Media.

"Nils Holgersson is a well-known international brand and we are sure that the CGI version will be as successful as the 2D animation. Moreover, ‘Blinky Bill’s’ first episodes have already aired in Australia and this makes us very confident for the international roll-out of the series.”
