TV-Loonland has secured a plethora of content deals for its one-minute short series The Owl.

The BBC recently picked up the property in the UK, and now new deals have been closed with Jetix covering the US, Latin America, Nordic territories, Japan, India and Pakistan.

In addition, TV-Loonland has licensed pay TV rights to French broadcasters Canal J and Mini Mini Poland.

The Owl will also be seen on Canadian free and pay TV with YTV and Societe Radio Canada acquiring the series. Free-TV rights have been picked up by VEO TV Digital Spain, DR TV Denmark and the Polish pre-school channel Canal + Cyfrowy.

The series (made up of 52 one-minute shorts) features one unfortunate Owl facing the daily challenge to stay in one piece. It has also been sold to Universal Family Entertainment in Germany for home video.

Non-exclusive mobile rights for the UK have been granted to Player X, with Vivendi Mobile Entertainment picking up the rights for France. Free VOD and IPTV rights have been licensed to Bonsai Channel in Italy.
