The new broadcast deals come at a time when eOne is focusing its efforts on growing Peppa Pig location-based attractions through a multi-territory partnership with Merlin Entertainments and expanding Peppa Pig World at Paulton’s theme park in the UK with new rides.

The broadcaster’s licensing division has also been tapped to rep  Peppa Pig in Germany, with a focus on finding new partners. It will also take over management of existing relationships with licensees in the region.

TV Tokyo and Nordic broadcasters–NRK (Norway), DR (Denmark), YLE (Finland) and SVT (Sweden)–had also picked up the series last year.
