Gaumont has announced it has signed a new agreement with Nat Geo Kids, the multiplatform entertainment destination that launched last July.
Slapstick animated comedy show Furiki Wheels will debut on the platform in September 2018, bringing the antics of hyperactive sloth, Andre to devices across Latin America.
The series, originally commissioned by France Télévisions and Disney XD (EMEA), was created and directed by the talented Frédéric Martin and developed and produced by Gaumont.
“Nat Geo Kids has in a short time established itself as the venue for kids in Latin America wanting exploration and adventure, and Furiki Wheels delivers all of this and more, making it the ideal home for this series,” said Vanessa Shapiro, president, Worldwide TV Distribution and Co-Productions. “With our recently launched dedicated office in the region, we look forward to building a long-standing partnership with Nat Geo Kids.”
“In Nat Geo Kids we are thrilled to share with our audiences such an engaging content from Gaumont,” added Carmen Larios, SVP content strategy of National Geographic Partners in Latin America and continued: “Furiki Wheels original characters and adventures are the perfect complement for our grid and will captivate children in Latin America.”
