Turner Broadcasting System International has acquired the second series of the Mr Bean Animated Series, for distribution through Asia Pacific, Latin America, Latin America and EMEA.

The deal follows the recent announcement that the series has also been pre-sold to CiTV in the UK and Super RTL in Germany.

The deal – secured by Endemol – follows the success of the first series that has now been licensed in over 70 territories.

The series features the voice of Rowan Atkinson, who will also continue his creative involvement with the new series.

Mark Eyers, chief content officer, kids networks, Tuner International Asia Pacific, said: “This extraordinary universal comedy truly delivers on a premium and compelling content experience for both our audiences and affiliates.

“We are proud to welcome Mr Bean into the Turner fold and to partner with Endemol, Tiger Aspect and the exceptionally talented Rowan Atkinson.

“This unique, non dialogue brand of funny will delight viewers around the world.”

Cathy Payne, CEO of Endemol Worldwide Distribution, added: “We are excited that Turner has come on board to join our other partners CITV and Super RTL Germany.

“To have such support at this early stage is incredible and proves the popularity of the wonderful Mr Bean.”
