Plus international sales for live action series signed.
Publish date:

Decode Entertainment has scored a third season commission from Canada's Family Channel for its live action teen series, The Latest Buzz.

The new episodes will bring the total to 65x22-minutes available for the international market.

In addition to this, distribution subsidiary Decode Enterprises has made a raft of sales to international broadcasters. Cartoon Network Latin America, Nickelodeon Spain, Digiturk, Ireland's RTE and Canada's VRAK.TV have acquired both seasons one and two, with Cartoon Network Germany picking up season one.

These join Boomerang UK, Super RTL, ABC (Australia) and the Disney Channels in France, Italy and India as licensees for the series, which centres around five 14 year-old writers who work at a youth magazine during the eighth period at school.

"Creating live action shows with international appeal for this demographic is a challenge, but The Latest Buzz has universal themes at its core," said Neil Court, president of Decode Enterprises. "The new season commission and further international deals for the series shows that we're hitting the right note with our live action output."
