Zodiak Kids has made a major content sale to Amazon India in a new deal that adds up to over 100 hours of programming. The agreement includes all four seasons of popular kids’ animated series Horrid Henry (produced by Novel Ent. for CiTV), as well as Zodiak Kids Studios toons Extreme Football, Street Football and Sally Bollywood.
All series are set to launch on Amazon Prime Video in India early this year.
“We are extremely happy to announce our collaboration with Zodiak Kids by bringing immensely popular characters like Horrid Henry to India,” said Nitesh Kripalani, Director and Country Head for Amazon Prime Video India. “This alliance adds further volume to our existing bouquet of great kids’ programming, thus paving the way for us to have the largest exclusive selection of kids’ entertainment in India.”
Horrid Henry centers on a boy who constantly feels like life just isn’t fair — with a perfect little brother called Peter, a Mum and Dad who’d love him dearly if only he’d stop behaving, well, like a kid, and a moody girl next door who’s on a mission to make Henry’s life miserable, who can blame him? From where Henry stands, it’s him against the rest of the world. So if that means getting out of swimming class by pretending there’s a shark in the pool, organizing an anti-school uniform campaign with his friends or setting up a pet sitting business in his bedroom to supplement his measly allowance, then that’s all part of life as Henry knows it.
