41 Entertainment has granted the French Free TV and Pay TV rights for the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures property.

The Free TV rights have been given to Gulli, while Canal J has Pay TV rights.

“We are enthusiastic to award the Pay TV and Free TV rights in France to these fine channels," said Allen Bohbot, CEO of 41e.

“We have big plans for this property in 2014 in France.”

The deal is for seasons one and two of the TV series which are set to begin broadcasting from Autumn 2013.

“We are really pleased that this great property is part of our new line-up," added Caroline Cochaux, executive program director of Lagardère Active's Youth and Family TV Channels.

"We are happy with the storyline, animation quality and iconic nature and know the audience will like the show as well.”

41e has also given Zodiak Kids CP Paris the role of managing local activity and the agency has worked with both Canal J and Gullin on kids' brands in the past.

“We are very optimistic about the potential for this iconic, highly recognizable brand in France," said Patricia de Wilde, senior vice president at Zodiak.

Shin Unozawa, chief operating officer at Namco Bandai Games added: "We believe that Pac-Man will be very successful in France."
