DHX Media has signed seven new international distribution deals with broadcast and VOD partners for animated comedy Endangered Species (52 x 11). The show was originally commissioned by Corus Entertainment’s TELETOON in Canada.
Now on board are CBBC (U.K.), Turner Broadcasting System’s Cartoon Network and Boomerang (Latin America), Gulli Russia’s Universkids channel, Plus Plus Channel (Ukraine), Zoom (Israel), Daekyo Kids TV (South Korea) and iflix (South East Asia).
Endangered Species follows Pickle the bunny, Merl the squirrel and Gull the seagull who, while they don’t seem like they’d top the lists of protected species, are constantly on the verge of extinction due to their comical misadventures. DHX picked up the show in its acquisition of Nerd Corps last year.
