eOne revs up Ricky Zoom international broadcast and licensing activity

Entertainment One is revving up activity around its new pre-school animated property, Ricky Zoom with a line-up of new broadcast and licensing partners ahead of the global launch of the series this autumn.

The Turkish network, Minika Cocuk brings the new CGI action adventure comedy to screens today, while free to air channels Karusel in Russia and Spacetoon Kids’ TV channel in the Middle East and North Africa will follow. Karusel will debut the series on October 19.

“We’re very proud to welcome Karusel, Minika Cocuk and Spacetoon to our outstanding line up of top tier broadcasters,” said eOne’s Monica Candiani, EVP International Content Sales, Family & Brands. “We’re delighted to expand our presence in these markets and to introduce Ricky Zoom to as many homes as possible.”

Entertainment One is also readying the consumer products programme for Ricky Zoom. Rosman will be charged with developing the brand’s publishing category in Russia, while Megalicense is the appointed agent for consumer products for Russia and CIS.

In Turkey, FILMA will represent eOne for consumer products.

Global FTA, PAYTV and VOD platforms are raring to debut eOne’s latest preschool property across multiple territories, including Nickelodeon (US), Super RTL (Germany), Clan TV (Spain), Gulli (France), RAI (Italy), Youku (China), and Discovery Kids (Latin America) with further deals soon to be announced ahead of MIPCOM 2019.
