Spanish creative factory Zinkia has produced a new animated special, POCOYO AND THE SPACE CIRCUS (1 x 25), which is to be unveiled to international buyers at MIPTV.
In POCOYO AND THE SPACE CIRCUS, which premiered to critical acclaim over the Christmas holidays on TVE1 (Spain), Pocoyo and his friends are visited by a group of extraterrestrial circus aliens. Pocoyo experiences his first trip to the circus and finds himself embroiled, with his friends, in a wild adventure to help the aliens and to ensure that the show goes on.
International distribution rights for the special (1 x 25), and the series (104 x 7), are handled by ITV Global Ent., excluding Spain, Portugal, Italy and Latin America which are handled by Zinkia.
In addition to its success on the small screen, the BAFTA-award winning series, licensed to over 100 countries worldwide, has notched up a strong internet following. The official Pocoyo web site, www.pocoyo.com, is now available in nine different languages.
The TV series Pocoyo is a Zinkia and ITV Global Entertainment co-production.
