Studio 100 Media has inked a deal with National Geographic for the exclusive pay TV rights for CG animated series The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill (52 x 12 min.) for Latin American territories. The series will air on the brand-new multiplatform channel Nat Geo Kids, launching July 1 across LatAm followed by a debut in Brazil in September. The agreement was arranged by exclusive regional distribution partner Comarex.

”We are delighted about this first agreement with National Geographic in LatAm. Blinky Bill will be one of the first shows airing on this newly created kids brand. We are confident that our cheeky koala bear will entertain kids in Latin America with his hilariously funny adventures,” said Martin Krieger, Head of Global Distribution at Studio 100 Media. “With Comarex we have established a successful collaboration and fruitful partnership over the years and we highly value their experience and expertise in distributing in Latin America.”

Diego Rock, EVP National Geographic Partners in Latin America, added: “At National Geographic we are always looking for the best content to develop the potential of our viewers. The launch of Nat Geo Kids is one of our biggest challenges, with the most demanding public, and we are very excited to share this opportunity with Studio 100. The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill will contribute to develop the curiosity of the children through both exploration and entertainment.”

Aimed at kids ages 4-7, The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill is a witty, modern CG version of the iconic Australian character. The show is produced by Flying Bark Productions in association with Telegael Teoranta (Ireland) and Giant Wheel (India).
