The Future is Wild - which combines action, adventure and science fiction with lessons in evolution - has been signed by RTL2 in Germany, Luk International in Spain and Portugal, RTBF in Belgium, YLE2 in Scandinavia and Animal Planet in Latin America.

Willa's Wild Life (pictured) - which follows the adventures of Willa, a little girl who brings home stray penguins and hippos instead of cats and dogs - has been picked up by Discovery Kids in Latin America.

Mediaset in Italy has picked up 26 episodes of Pearlie, which is an urban-fairy comedy based on the best selling books by Australian comedienne Wendy Harmer.

Finally, Z-Squad has been sold to De Agostini in Italy. The show is produced by Enemes and features a blend of 2D anime design and 3D shading.



Founded in 1971, Nelvana is made up of two divisions. Nelvana Studios develops and produces animated content from its production facility in Toronto.
