New CGI animated TV series Shelldon has scooped a broadcast partner in the US.
Entertainment Rights has come to an agreement for the show to air on Qubo's children's programming block, which currently airs on NBC, Telemundo and ION TV networks. The 13x30-minute series, which focuses on environmental themes, targets four to eight year olds and is scheduled to premiere in spring 2009.
ER acquired the worldwide distribution rights (excluding Thailand and with shared representation in Japan and Korea) back in March across all forms of TV, digital media, home entertainment, music, licensing and merchandising, and all other media.
"Shelldon is a vibrant show that addresses important issues in a very creative, fun and clever way," said Doug Schwalbe, executive VP of sales and co-production at ER North America. "Following our success in the US, we are now actively engaged with key international broadcasters at Mipcom following the delivery of the first episode, to expand the worldwide presence for this series."
