MIPCOM, Cannes – Building on the rapid success of brand animated series such as Oggy and the Cockroaches and The Daltons on K2 (the Discovery Italia free-to-air channel targeting kids 4-14 filled with action, adventure and pure entertainment), award-winning French animation studio Xilam and Discovery Italia have signed an Output deal for the upcoming years.
In a move to strengthen Discovery Italia’s animated comedy line-up, this comprehensive trade agreement includes 14 series, i.e. a volume of 450 half-hour programmes. In short:
- 250 half hours from Xilam’s library, including Oggy and The Cockroaches, The Daltons, Space Goofs, etc.
- 120 half-hours of series currently in production, including Hubert and Takako, Zig and Sharko (season 2), The Daltons (season 2), etc.
- 80 half hours, i.e. 3 new series to be produced by Xilam in 2015-2016
“Build a partnership with Xilam was unavoidable,” said Loredana Di Domenico, Programming & Content Acquisition Director Discovery Italia. “They’re masters of animated comedies and K2 is the reign of fun!”
