eOne finds Peppa, Raymond more homes

Entertainment One (eOne) preschool programming including Peppa Pig and The Secret World of Benjamin Bear has found new homes across the globe.

The Transatlantic entertainment firm’s Family division has sold Astley Baker Davies-produced Peppa to Nickelodeon’s Benelux and Scandinavian feeds.

Italian kidscaster Rai has also acquired seasons three and four and renewed the first two seasons, while Ireland’s RTÉ has relicensed Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom and Peppa seasons one and four.

Both Nick and Rai plan to launch their new acquisitions this month.

Elsewhere, Germany’s KiKa has acquired Porchlight Entertainment/Amberwood Entertainment coproduction The Secret World of Benjamin Bear; and ZDF has taken Raymond, which follows the adventures of an eight-year-old boy.

Cartoon Network’s Japanese channel has also acquired seasons two and three and plans to broadcast them shortly.

eOne Family’s head of international sales Joss Duffield has secured further deals with Estonia TV for Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom and the Czech Republic’s Ceska Televisa.

eOne Family’s MD Olivier Dumont said he hoped these latest sales would “undoubtedly” increase the profile of the division’s content in new markets.
