Entertainment One announces the return of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom for a second season.
London, UK -- Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom is winning audiences in Italy and Australia and Entertainment One (eOne) announced that the award-winning preschool series is returning to RAI Italy and ABC Australia.
Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom has become a ratings winner since debuting on Italy’s most watched children’s channel RAI Yoyo in 2012 where it is out performing other shows in its time slot. In Australia, the show airs daily on ABC at 7.45 am to very strong ratings.
Monica Candiani Head of International Sales at Entertainment One Family says, “Series One of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom received great ratings in Italy and Australia and these returning broadcast deals from RAI and ABC demonstrate that the show has found its way into the hearts of preschool audiences there.”
Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom continues to captivate audiences worldwide and the show now airs in over 160 countries. In addition to its popularity in Italy and Australia, the show also boasts strong broadcast figures in Germany and Spain and eOne is now looking to extend the licensing programme into these territories.
