Cyber Group Studios expands UK distribution with Sony Pictures Television's Pop and Tiny Pop

18 September 2019

 Paris, Monday September 16th 2019: Cyber Group Studios – Paris and Los Angeles based producer and distributor of animated television series and movies for kids and families – expands its entertainment distribution in the UK via its latest collaboration with Sony Pictures Television’s Pop and Tiny Pop children’s channels. 

Cyber Group Studios’ new animated series, Sadie Sparks and preschool series, Gigantosaurus will be broadcast in the UK for the first time on Sony Pictures Television’s free-to-air channels; POP and its companion upper pre-school channel, Tiny POP, respectively. 

Sadie Sparks, aimed at children aged 6 to 10 years old, is the new 52x 11’ 2D, HD and CGI animated comedy series following the daily life of a teenage girl who discovers she has extraordinary powers. Unfortunately, such powers can only be harnessed in partnership with an ancient and extremely grumpy magical rabbit called Gilbert, who just wants to retire. Sadie Sparks will make its UK free-to-air debut on POP, in Q2 2020. 

Gigantosaurus, the award-winning 52x 11’ CGI comedy-action series brings to life Jonny Duddle’s book published by Templar, which has sold more than 250,000 units in the UK alone. It features four fiercely-fun dinosaur friends – Rocky, Bill, Mazu and Tiny – who take pre-schoolers on exciting, comedy-filled adventures as they dare to be themselves and explore the world beyond their nests. The laugh-out-loud pre-school animation currently airs on Disney around the globe, with the series now set to hit UK screens on free-to-air channel, Tiny POP, also in Q2 2020. The show is also confirmed to broadcast on free-to-air channels in other territories, such as France TV, Germany’s Super RTL plus Italy’s Rai Yoyo and on Netflix almost worldwide. 

Raphaelle Mathieu, Senior Vice-President Sales, Acquisitions and New Media, says: “We see this collaboration with Sony Pictures Television as a pivotal step in our journey which will enable us to grow the reach and audiences of both properties. We are confident that securing free-to-air broadcast on the UK’s top-performing children’s channels – POP and Tiny POP – will help elevate Sadie Sparks and Gigantosaurus to great heights in such a key market.” 

Craig Hunter, Head of Kids Networks at Sony Pictures Television, says “Our goal is to bring all kids and parents the best possible content, and so we’re thrilled to be working with Cyber Group Studios to bring Sadie Sparks and Gigantosaurus to a free to air audience for the very first time in the UK. These two new titles are full of exciting characters surrounded by great stories, and they'll be great additions to our portfolio.” 

This latest announcement coincides with a period of significant growth for Cyber Group Studios’ brands following the start of an extensive licensing programme for Gigantosaurus. Partners include Jakks Pacific as master toy licensee, and Outright Games who are planning a video game to be published on PlayStation® 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and PC. Publishing remains a priority for the IP, with Templar planning to publish the first of 40 new TV tie-in books across Europe in 2020.
