Milan-based brand management firm TeamWorks has signed up Foothill Entertainment as the exclusive distributor for all English-speaking territories for its Spike Team series.
The relationship marks the first foray into the English language market for the volleyball-themed show. It is already rating strongly on RAI2, with a second season in the works.
Spike Team - which will compete for the Pulcinella Award at this year's Cartoons on the Bay - is based on an idea by real-life volleyball champion Andrea Lucchetta.
"We are so pleased to be joining forces with the professionals at Foothill to bring this inspiring and fun series to the English-speaking market in the near future," said Maria Romanelli, VP at TeamWorks.
