TV-Loonland Completes Central And Eastern European Sales
TV-Loonland has recently completed the sale of several animation titles in Central and Eastern Europe on the eve of DISCOP, the television market held annually each June in Budapest, Hungary. One of TV-Loonlands most popular childrens series PETTSON AND FINDUS (13 x 13 minutes or 2 x 75 minutes) has been sold to Duna TV (Hungary), Czech TV (Czech Republic) and RTV Slo (Slovenia). The series is a co-production between TV-Loonland, Happy Life Animation and Svensk Filmindustri with the participation of ZDF. RTV Slo also picked up the pre-school series CONNIE THE COW (52 x 7 minutes). THE CRAMP TWINS (26 x 30 minutes) is another popular title for Central and Eastern Europe and will now be seen on Cartoon Network in Romania and Hungary. Slovak TV (Slovakia) has acquired the pre-school series LETTERS FROM FELIX (26 x 12 minutes) and pre-school animated series CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG (40 x 30 minutes) has been sold to Poland's TVP. "TV-Loonland sees DISCOP as a great opportunity for making contacts and building relationships with broadcasters from the fast developing countries in Central and Eastern Europe," commented Natalie Gordon, TV-Loonlands sales manager for Central and Eastern Europe. "These recent sales combined with the increasing interest in our catalogue indicate to us that DISCOP is a more valuable market than ever before." DISCOP 2002 will take place in Budapest, Hungary from June 27-29, 2002.
