Classic Media has been appointed worldwide representative across all media for kids’ TV series The Owl & Co, excluding French-speaking countries.
The 3D computer generated TV series, produced by Studio Hari, now consists of 78 seven-minute episodes, which will debut at Mipjunior. These will make their on-air debut in 2013.
The original series featured 52 one-minute episodes which received top audience ratings and aired in 200 countries worldwide. Four TV specials based on the series premiered last year.
”We are thrilled to be working with Classic Media on this key property”, said Josselin Charier, co-founder of Studio Hari with Antoine Rodelet.
“The original short series was a huge success and Classic Media is the perfect partner to launch the new longer format of The Owl & Co in the international market. We are immensely proud of this partnership and we have every confidence in Classic Media to help us to build a strong and successful brand, and a hit TV series.”
Chloé van den Berg, EVP for International at Classic Media, added: “We’re enormously pleased to announce we’re working with Studio Hari. The original series was an outstanding success, and we are delighted to be representing this hilariously funny property in its new longer format.”
