Shaun the Sheep heads to Southeast Asia

Cartoon Network has acquired the exclusive rights from Aardman Animations to air the new season of Shaun the Sheep across Southeast Asia, including Taiwan and the Philippines.

The region’s leading international kids’ channel will start airing the first part of the fourth season immediately.

The second part will be air in 2015, coinciding with the theatrical release of the Shaun the Sheep movie.

Cartoon Network has also picked up rights for season one and season two until 2018.

“Shaun the Sheep is an irresistibly creative and funny show from one of the leading animations studios in Europe," said Edward Barnieh, senior manager of acquisitions, programming and development at Turner International Asia Pacific.

"While it has rightfully earned plaudits from around the world, this is a series that will delight and entertain audiences in Asia. It is an exciting addition to Cartoon Network’s comedy line-up and fits perfectly alongside our other slapstick series.”
