The new show from Marathon Media and Spin Master - Redakai: Conquer the Kairu - is continuing to gather international broadcast support.

Cartoon Network US is already backing the show, and now Canada's YTV and French channels Gulli and Canal J have revealed plans to broadcast the series in early 2012 and the second half of this year respectively.

Spin Master is also planning a comprehensive range of games, trading cards and toys linked to the series, all featuring technology elements.

“After Cartoon Network US, we are delighted to partner once again with Gulli, Canal J and YTV – with whom we have already enjoyed some major successes – this time with Redakai, a ground-breaking adventure series,” said Vincent Chalvon Demersay and David Michel, co-principals of Marathon Media.

“Spin Master is thrilled to have the strength and support of YTV behind the launch of Redakai in Canada,” explains Jennifer Dodge, executive producer at Spin Master Entertainment.

“They will be the perfect strategic complement to the efforts of our partners Gulli and Canal J in France and Cartoon Network in the US.”
