Munich-based distribution and production company Studio 100 Media has inked a deal with AMC Networks International – Central Europe which will bring its CG animated series Nils Holgersson and The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill to multiple territories across the region. Both series are set to be completed this summer, and will premiere on AMCNI’s Minimax starting in June.
AMCNI-CE picked up exclusive rights to distribute the two shows via cable, satellite, and terrestrial television. The agreement covers territories including Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Czech Republic, Slovakia, ex-Yugoslavia including Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Croatia and Slovenia.
“We are delighted to continue our long-term cooperation with AMC Networks International – Central Europe, which are already home to our CGI shows Vic the Viking and Heidi as well as our live action mystery series Ghost Rockers,” said Martin Krieger, Head of Global Distribution at Studio 100 Media. “Nils Holgersson is a well-known international brand and we are sure that the CGI version will be as successful as the 2D animation. Moreover, Blinky Bill‘s first episodes have already aired in Australia and this makes us very confident for the international roll-out of the series.”
