FremantleMedia Kids & Family(FMK) announced today that Discovery Italia has acquired both series of the CBBC/FMK co-produced high-action, comedy animation Danger Mouse. In addition, Nickelodeon in Germany, and Sky Television in New Zealand have both picked up the second series.
Following the success of series 1 (52 x 11’) on the channel Nickelodeon will air series 2 in Q1 2018 whilst Sky Television is due to premiere the series in December this year.
In addition Danger Mouse will also premiere on leading free-to-air children’s channel Gulli in France and on MBC in the Middle East in early ‘18.
This continued international linear roll out follows the global launch of the series on Netflix in the US and other territories last spring.
FremantleMedia Kids & Family, alongside their respective agents Biplano, MBC and ProsiebenSat.1, is now implementing licensing programmes in these key territories.
Tessa Moore, SVP Global Brand Management at FremantleMedia Kids & Family, said: “ The original Danger Mouse series was a hit in France & Germany almost 25 years ago. It’s great to see that our new DM’s sharp-witted storylines and eye-catching visuals are captivating generation Z fans in Europe and the Middle East.”
The top-rating and critically acclaimed new Danger Mouse has made a huge impact since returning to UK screens after a 23-year absence. Licensed to thrill a whole new generation of fans, the riotous new high-octane adventures, ingeniously rebooted for today’s tech-savvy and humour-hungry kids has now been sold to over 100 territories.
Danger Mouse is co-produced by CBBC and FremantleMedia Kids & Family and is animated by Boulder Media. FremantleMedia Kids & Family owns the global TV and licensing rights to the series.
