Nickelodeon and BRB Internacional have struck a deal to air animated TV series, ANGUS & CHERYL, across several European and Latin American territories this fall. This first-ever broadcasting deal between Nickelodeon and BRB gives the network cable and satellite TV rights to the series for Belgium, France, Holland, Italy, Latin America, Luxembourg, Portugal, Scandinavia, Spain and Switzerland. Additionally, Nickelodeon in Holland will also screen the show in an open-broadcast format.
The 104x1:30 ANGUS & CHERYL delivers a fresh, new comedy, produced in Hi-Def 3D, without dialogue and with a powerful design presence, and is produced by Cataloniaâs Screen 21. The series offers a fun look at the daily clashes in any coupleâs relationship through the eyes of two curious protagonists. Angus is simple and direct while Cheryl is complex and devious. This new show explores the ever-intriguing universal issue of girls vs. boys.
"Aimed at a family audience, ANGUS & CHERYL contains a universal sense of humor," said Carlos Biern, head of co-productions and new development at BRB. "It is a unique, light-hearted comedy, which reflects the relationships between boys and girls today," and offers great new technological developments, he said.
âWeâre excited to be partnering with BRB Internacional for the first time and ANGUS & CHERYL carries all the key qualities we look for in Nickelodeon content and programming," commented Jules Borkent, vp, programming, Nickelodeon Int'l. "The show is fun, has cross-gender appeal with strong characters and its multiplatform attributes give it that extra orange edge. Iâm really looking forward to introducing ANGUS & CHERYL to our audiences around the world this autumn."
Co-produced by BRB Internacional, Screen 21, TelevisiÃ³ de Catalunya and Tuba Ent., the series has been specifically designed to easily adapt to mobile phones, videogames, blogs, podcasts and virtual communities.
