CANNES, FRANCE -- Singapore-based animation content producer Cosmos-Maya has announced that it has completed multiple sales in several territories for the company’s flagship animation series Eena Meena Deeka.
Rights to the slapstick comedy Eena Meena Deeka have been sold to Imira Entertainment (Spain) for Latin America, the U.S. Hispanic speaking territories and Africa excluding the Sub Sahara and to Hub Media Group (Singapore) who will handle the distribution in Thailand, Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand. Cosmos-Maya has already sold the rights to Munich-based media group Your Family Entertainment the distribution and co-production partner on the series for the European territories excluding the U.K., France, Italy, Spain and Ireland, and also to MENA & Sub-Saharan Africa.

Broadcast on Disney Group’s children’s channel Hungama, Eena Meena Deeka is written by renowned American, Canadian and British writers Nathan Heinze, Aaron Barnett and Richard Dinnick. The animation is a slapstick action comedy series of gags, which essentially tells the story of a constant chase between a cunning hungry fox and three chicks Eena, Meena and Deeka. The perennially hungry fox is forever on the prowl for these chicks who are always at the ready to foil his plan and out-fox him. Every failure goads the angry but determined fox to devise even more cunning plans to outwit them in every passing episode, which usually ends up being a wild-chick chase.
“We are delighted with the multiple sales of our flagship series Eena Meena Deeka and look forward to its continued success internationally,” commented Anish Mehta, CEO of Cosmos-Maya. “The USP of the series lies in its classic appeal, which is an ode to the cartoons of yore. The hand drawn feel, the retro music and the slapstick chase all give Eena Meena Deeka such a distinct yet universal appeal and thus we have been able to break into so many territories within six months of the launch of the show.”
