Paris, France -- Millimages has secured two new broadcast deals for Mouk in Canada with English-speaking TVO and French-speaking TFO. The deal marks the series’ first sales in North America and follows hot on the heels of broadcast agreements across Scandinavia with TV2 Denmark, TV2 Norway, MTV3 Finland and a DVD deal with Svensk.
The 62 x 11-minute animated preschool series, commissioned by France Télévisions and Disney Channel UK, is already on air on ABC Australia, France 5, Disney Channels in the UK, Scandinavia, Spain, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Mouk will roll out shortly on KiKA Germany, Disney Italy and Benelux, Disney Asia, ERT Estonia, RTV Slovenia and LTV Latvia.
John Reynolds, Group Commercial Director at Millimages says: “We are thrilled that the inspiring adventures of Mouk are continuing to capture the imagination of broadcasters worldwide. It is exciting to be introducing Mouk to Canadian children through these new deals.”
Based on the work of Marc Boutavant and directed by François Narboux, the show revolves around Mouk and his buddy Chavapa, two globetrotters who explore the world on their bicycles.
From Ouagadougou to New York, from Australia to Madagascar and Greece, the two buddies discover the world and its inhabitants... and as everything's different from home, adventure is always at the end of the road!
Preschool viewers can join them as they discover new countries and the many wonderful things that inhabit these places. As they travel around the globe, they keep Popo, their home loving friend and his sister Mita, up to date with all the news of their travels.
