Turner Broadcasting’s Boomerang has acquired the pay TV rights to TAT Productions and Master Films’ The Jungle Bunch to the Rescue! series in Europe and Southeast Asia.
The Jungle Bunch to the Rescue! is already available in 180 territories via licensing deals with broadcasters including France 3, Rai, TVE, ABC Australia, Super RTL, and more.
Boomerang will expand this global pay TV footprint by adding the series on its channels in Europe (UK, France, Benelux, Italy, Nordics and Eastern Europe) and Southeast Asia (including but not limited to Philippines, Brunei, Burma, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Mongolia, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Tahiti, Thailand and Vietnam and Taïwan).
“We are excited to be partnering with PGS to introduce our audiences to the award-winning The Jungle Bunch property through Boomerang’s channels across Europe and Southeast Asia,” said Cecilia Persson, vice president of acquisitions and co-production, EMEA International Turner Broadcasting System Europe.
“We recognise that our viewers want diverse, high-quality content and this franchise delivers original and funny characters that will resonate with our young viewers, as well as provide entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. The Jungle Bunch also conveys positive messages of friendship and diversity, showcased through light-hearted story lines that are both relevant and valuable to our viewers.”
Guillaume Soutter, president, PGS Entertainment, added: “From the beginning, it’s been the quality of the storytelling and the completely engaging characters in The Jungle Bunch that have contributed to its incredible success.
“We are excited to have the show joining Boomerang, which will extend our viewership on an amazing platform for kids and families.”
