Veteran French producer Millimages has secured a number of deal for its best-selling titles which will bring them to audiences across Asia. “Asia is a proven market and we are very happy for the great performance of our programs,” said group commercial director Grace Lee. “I am positive that the market will get bigger and bigger with extension of the digital market.”
Numerous pubcasters have hopped on the non-dialogue short series Molang (104 x 3’30”), following its pan-regional acquisition by Disney Asia, including EBS (Korea), TVB (Hong Kong), PBS (Thailand), OKTO (Singapore) and PTS (Singapore). Disney India has also picked up the 2017 International Kids Emmy-nominated series, having already committed to another non-dialogue short format from Millimages: Kung Fu Bunny (12 x 7).
Top European-produced toon 64 Zoo Lane, now offering seasons 3 and 4 (52 x 11), is still going strong years after its 1999 debut. The show has recently sold to Disney Japan after its successful launch on Disney Junior; to Daekyo TV (Korea) for its Baby TV; and to Nickelodeon India — along with Louie (117 x 7) — for its new VOOT platform.
Further, new kids’ series Paper Port (26 x 11) has sold to HBO Asia as well as Sony India, which picked it up in a three-title deal which also includes Me and My Robot (52 x 13) and Trust Me, I’m a Genie (52 x 13).
