Millimages’ charming preschool series Mouk has landed two new Canadian broadcasters—English-speaking TVO and French-speaking TFO. The deal marks the series’ first sales in North America and follows on the heels of broadcast agreements across Scandinavia with TV2 Denmark, TV2 Norway, MTV3 Finland and a DVD deal with Svensk.
The 62 x 11-minute animated preschool series, commissioned by France Télévisions and Disney Channel UK, is already on air on ABC Australia, France 5, Disney Channels in the UK, Scandinavia, Spain, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Mouk will roll out shortly on KiKA Germany, Disney Italy and Benelux, Disney Asia, ERT Estonia, RTV Slovenia and LTV Latvia.
John Reynolds, Group Commercial Director at Millimages says: “We are thrilled that the inspiring adventures of Mouk are continuing to capture the imagination of broadcasters worldwide. It is exciting to be introducing Mouk to Canadian children through these new deals.”
The 2D series is based on the work of Marc Boutavant and directed by Francois Narboux. It centers on the worldwide adventures of Mouk and his friend Chavapa, as they explore different countries on their bicycles—“from Ouagadougou to New York, from Australia to Madagascar and Greece.”
Millimages holds all international TV and licensing and merchandising rights to the property.
