UK animation prodco Martin Gates Productions will relaunch its programme library in high definition at this year’s MipJunior to mark the company’s 25th anniversary.
The prodco is joining forces with Conexion Media Group to bring titles including The Dreamstone (52×30’) and Bimble’s Bucket (13×30’) back to the international market.
The 40-hour programme catalogue has been upgraded to HD quality and will now be sold internationally by Dublin-based distributor Monster Entertainment.
The Dreamstone is set on a distant planet where dreams and nightmares do battle and has previously been sold into 30 countries. Bimble’s Bucket has been picked up by broadcasters in 50 territories, including Sky and CiTV in the UK.
Also included on the slate are one-off specials Mole’s Christmas, adapted from a chapter in The Wind in the Willows and previously aired by the BBC and The Disney Channel, and Santa’s Last Christmas, which is voiced by Hugh Laurie (House).
