The Hive was the most watched children’s show on Australia’s ABC2 in August.
The CGI-animated show, which follows the trials and tribulations of a family of honey bees, is also ‘doing very well’ on ITV, while The Walt Disney Company EMEA has picked up the show for its satellite stations in over 150 countries.
"The Hive performs consistently well in Australia and these latest figures add to the fact that it is often the most watched kids show across all channels,” said Mark Hurry, director of licensing at Space.
“This is great news for licensees, who will be tapping into a massive fanbase when product is launched at Australian retail.”
