BKN's new Zorro: Generation Z show has got off to a flying start in Spain.
Its first broadcast in Spain on Clan TVE came in at number two overall in kids four to 12 on the channel ahead of established brands like Winx Club and Ben 10, according to the firm.
The series first aired on April 8th at 8.50pm, reaching a peak audience delivery of 158,000 on April 23rd, a particularly strong start given that Clan TVE is a digital free TV channel that reaches around 33 per cent of Spanish homes currently.
The series now airs seven days a week in two time slots, one mid-afternoon and again at 8pm.
"Zorro: Generation Z has performed extremely well on the channel as per the ratings and the viewer response has been very encouraging," said TVE's executive for animation acquisitions, Fernando Hernandez Benjumeda.
Laura Tapias, MD at BKN New Media, added: "We have huge plans for this property later in 2008 and for all of 2009 including the DVD releases, the toy line and so many other licensed products. This is only the beginning."
