UK free-to-air net Channel 5 (C5) is among a number of broadcasters that have acquired Zodiak Kids’ latest preschool series Tickety Toc (52x11′).
The animated show, which launched on pay-TV in the UK on Nick Jr this year, has gone to C5, France 5, Disney Junior (Canada), TG4 (Ireland) and Pop TV (Slovenia).
This comes after NRK Super (Norway) and YLE (Finland) pre-bought it last September from vendor Zodiak Kids, the children’s and family arm of European-based production and distribution giant Zodiak Media.
Tickety follows the madcap exploits of a pair of twins and their friends as they race to keep a clock chiming in time. It comes from Gil Hoon Jung from Korea’s FunnyFlux Entertainment, which coproduces the show with Zodiak-owned UK kids’ prodco The Foundation.
Last month, Nick Jr snapped up another Foundation/Korean coproduction, Quick Quack Duck, which also has Israeli format creator QQD attached.
