Announced in connection with its visit to MIPCOM, ICON Animation has signed multiple international deals.
ICON and Barcelona-based licensing agency BIPLANO have signed a wide collaboration agreement in which each company will handle the rights to licensing and TV for MIMI & MR. BOBO (26x26), MIMI AND THE GANG (26x6 / 7x26 / 13x1) and CLIFFORD, THE BIG RED DOG (50x24). MIMI tells of the adventures of a nice girl and her five friends, who form a simple neighbourhood gang causing havoc all over the city. The series has been sold to more than 20 countries and will be broadcast by TVE and FOX KIDS. The next step will be to expand the agreement to encompass other series from both companies and other companies with whom negotiations are already underway.
