PGS Entertainment strikes new deals for Robin Hood: Mischief in Sherwood, bringing the show to Quebec, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, and Finland.
Paris, France -- Picking up momentum across the globe, Robin Hood: Mischief in Sherwood, a series based on the classic tale and produced by Method Animation and DQ Entertainment and commissioned by TF1 (France), De Agostini (Italy) and ZDF (Germany), has been picked up by broadcasters in French-speaking Canada and across Europe.
Leading kids programming distributor and brand manager PGS Entertainment has completed broadcasting deals for the series with Tele-Quebec in Quebec, VRT in Belgium, Canal Panda in Portugal, RTVE in Spain and MTV3 in Finland.
Robin Hood: Mischief in Sherwood (52 X 11’) is a fun twist on the legendary story of the beloved bandit and his accomplices that is re-booted just for kids aged 6 to 10. The story begins when King Richard’s spoiled brother named Prince John comes to Nottingham for the first time. Keen to impose his newly bestowed powers on his subjects, he finds a mocking critic in young Robin Hood. Not taking the ridicule lying down, the Prince declares Robin an outlaw and he goes into hiding in Sherwood Forest with his friends: the now famous Little John, Friar Tuck, Scarlett and the unforgettable Maid Marian. The series is produced in HD CGI and is also available in 3D.
“Robin Hood is an instantly identifiable character that parents associate with the classic story and feel good about introducing to their kids,” said Guillaume Soutter, Co-founder and Head of International Sales. “The series is a beautifully executed HD CGI work of art and we’re very excited to see it catching on with broadcasters all over the world.”
