Paris, May 14th 2012. Paris-based animation producer and distributor Cyber Group Studios is expanding its worldwide presence in the biggest media market of Latin America, Brazil.
The company has just placed two of its flagship series “Tales of Tatonka” (52×13’) and “Animalia” (40×24’) on the Brazilian public channel TV Brasil, and has signed a global agreement with the distribution company Synapse.
The series is planned to be on air next September.
“Tatonka and Animalia are two animated series endowed with an extraordinary technique and transmit messages of great importance for learning about life“ says Jose Zimmermann, International Acquisition Manager at TV Brasil.
“We know that TV Brasil is always very selective to choose the best content for their kids viewers, says Carole Brin, Head of International TV Sales and Acquisitions at Cyber Group Studios. We are very delighted that they picked-up both “Tales of Tatonka” and “Animalia” and we hope that these series will outperform as they do in the rest of the world”.
“Tales of Tatonka” (52×13’), produced by Cyber Group Studios for TiJi in France and Rai 2 in Italy has already been sold to more than 60 broadcasters, covering over 110 territories, on all five continents, including France TV in France, Karusel in Russia, Tele-Quebec in Canada, YLE in Finland or TV2 in Norway. The series, aimed at 4 to 8 year-olds, tells the adventures of four wolf cubs who learn about life outside the family in the plains and the forests of North America.
“Animalia” (40×24′), the Emmy-Award series produced by Burberry Production, Lux Monky and DoubleBase, is experiencing a continuing success and has already been sold in 140 territories. Based on a book by Graeme Base, “Animalia” skews 8-12 year-old boys and girls, and tells the story of two human children, Alex and his friend Zoe, who stumble into the magical library which transports them to the animal-inhabited world of Animalia.
