Toronto-based Picture Box Distribution announces a number of sales for its kids’ series slate to international broadcasters. Junior TV in Italy has picked up animated fare Yup Yups (50 x 2) from Radical Sheep Productions and Wiki the Kiwi (25 x 7) from Flux Animation — also acquired by Kenny & Co in Korea for Pay TV — and the live-action series Roll Play from Sinking Ship Ent.
Additionally, Discovery Kids Latin America has picked up the first two seasons of CG/live-action hybrid series Annedroids (52 x 30), produced by Sinking Ship. The deal covers most of Latin America, excluding Brazil where the show has been acquired by Gloob. NRK in Norway will launch the first two seasons (26 episodes) on NRK Super early this year, and has bought the third and fourth seasons.
