Insectibles, the award winning 3D animated co-production between One Animation, KiKA, Discovery Kids and ZDFE, has secured new broadcast partners worldwide it was announced today.
Earlier this year the fully HD TV adventure series, aimed at children aged 6 to 9 years, saw off stiff competition from broadcasters to become the #1 rated show in Germany.
Insectibles has seen a rollout at breakneck speed across the globe hitting screens in Germany on KiKA, France on Canal + and Teletoon, in the UK and Italy on Pop, SVT in Sweden, SIC in Portugal, Lightbox in New Zealand, Discovery Kids in LATAM, the Middle East and Asia, and across the majority of Amazon’s territories simultaneously via its Amazon Prime Video Direct streaming service. This month in-flight entertainment gets a whole lot more adventurous as Insectibles rolls out across multiple airline partners on 40 destinations worldwide.
Sebastian Debertin, Head of Fiction, Acquisition & Co-Production, at KiKA, commented “We showed our faith in Insectibles when we took the decision to put the show in our highly popular 7pm daily slot. And our faith paid off because now it’s one of the biggest shows in Germany. Undoubtedly a big pull for the show is the cinema-quality and 3D animation bringing the characters and storylines to life in a way we are used to in cinemas but which is not often seen on TV. Plus the ideas and adventures which the characters become embroiled in really engage the audience, boys and girls alike.”
Sashim Parmanand, CEO of One Animation, commented: “This year has been spectacular for us, with regular reports coming in about our show is topping the ratings charts first on KiKA and now in different countries around the world.
“To get this news for one of our shows really exemplifies the excellent 3D and HD image quality that the guys in the studio are able to produce. Insectibles really demonstrates the technical animation expertise we have in-house. Creating stunning, visual content is something we like to do, so it’s gratifying to know it’s also commercially worthwhile as kids globally are now really engaging with it.”
