Premium kids content producer and distributor Federation Kids & Family and its sister production company Cottonwood Media have announced a further sale of The Ollie & Moon Show (52 x 11) to Super! (Italy) and YLE (Finland).
Produced by Cottonwood Media, The Ollie & Moon Show features a couple of curious, globe-trotting cats who drag their upper-pre-school audience with them on their travels around the world introducing them to the joys of unlikely friendships and global citizenship.
Kids join them on their vivid adventures around the world – enjoying the fun that comes from discovering new food, language, cities, customs, and friends. Designed to show kids the world in a funny and engaging way, The Ollie & Moon Show is edutainment at its very best.
The latest deals add another key European market and a first Nordic terrestrial broadcaster to the show’s global network of 150+ countries already on board.
Hot on the heels of a raft of Mipcom acquisitions, the new agreement adds Asia to its continental coverage while positioning the show in over 160 territories.
Previous key sales include a network of A-list of channels, including France Télévisions (France), NBC Sprout (USA), TVO (Canada), Discovery (LatAm), D-Kids (MENA), Knowledge (Canada), VRT (Belgium), and IETV (Israel).
The Ollie & Moon Show is distributed by Cottonwood’s sister company Federation Kids & Family. Comments senior vice president, co-production and sales, Monica Levy, “We are delighted to have new channels continually joining our global network of partners. These new acquisitions in two such diverse territories as Finland and Italy – just go to show that good storytelling and magnetic characters are truly universal. We are so pleased that Ollie & Moon continue to prove this point!”
Using a unique mix of animation (cats) and live action (backgrounds) The Ollie & Moon Show is based on the best-selling book series created by author and illustrator Diane Kredensor who is an Emmy Award-winning artist, director and producer whose credits include Pinky and the Brain, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Word World, among others.
