Award-winning content creation, distribution and licensing studio One Animation has secured a new deal with Sky Kids in the UK for its hit CG-animated series Oddbods. Under the deal, Sky Kids has acquired rights for season three of Oddbods’ long-form series (60 x 8’) and the seasonal special ‘The Festive Menace’ (1 x 23’).
The Oddbods content will launch on Sky Kids from Friday 17 December. In the UK, previous seasons of Oddbods have been licensed by Turner (now WarnerMedia) as part of an EMEA wide deal, as well as ITV.
Oddbods is a three-time Emmy Award-nominated, non-dialogue comedy featuring seven highly unique pals who together, despite their differences, survive the perils of everyday life, unintentionally turning ordinary situations into unexpected, extraordinary, and always humorous events.
Michele Schofield, SVP, Content Distribution at One Animation, says: “This deal marks the first time we’re teaming up with Sky Kids and we’re confident Sky Kids will make the perfect new UK home for Oddbods’ latest season.
“Oddbods fills a need for kids and their family to be entertained and laugh together at the funny events arising from everyday situations. We can’t wait to see Sky Kids’ audience enjoy adventures with the Oddbods gang over the festive season and beyond.”
