Press Release from TV-Loonland
Munich/London, 8 June 2009 -- Following successful worldwide sales of the first Season, TV-Loonland and French broadcaster Gulli TV have commissioned a further two brand new Seasons of the hit animated comedy series RAYMOND. This sharp and quirky series is produced by Paris based production company Everybody on Deck, the addition of 52 hilarious new episodes of 7 minutes will complement the existing 26 episodes of the show.
Indeed, the series continues to attract broadcaster interest worldwide with most recent sign-ups being Cartoon Network Japan, Sweden's No1 commercial Broadcaster TV4 and International Francophone Channel TV5 Monde scooping up broadcast rights for airing in Europe, North Africa, the Orient, Asia, the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The odds may be stacked against him, but Raymond just never gives up! Being a somewhat strange-looking, super self-conscious, and a natural born worrier can make life pretty complicated for an eight-year old -- but his gentle quirky nature and wry sense of humour make Raymond both truly unique and totally irresistible.
Olivier Dumont, Managing Director at TV-Loonland: "We are thrilled to support Everybody On Deck in this new venture with the commissioning of not only one but two new Seasons of RAYMOND. With a greater number of episodes we expect sales to grow even more strongly as broadcasters can rely on a steady stream of episodes to fuel strong ratings."
The first season has already been placed with major broadcasters including Canal + and Gulli TV in France, ABC Australia, DR TV Denmark and MNET in South Africa.
