(June 5, 2015 – Toronto, Canada) – International distributor Portfolio Entertainment has signed multiple deals for three animated series from its kids catalogue with broadcasters in Canada, Norway and UAE.
The animated hit series DOKI (26 x 30’) has been sold to NRK in Norway and TVO and Knowledge Network in Canada. The series centres around curious Doki, as he and his five friends travel the world, exploring distant lands and cultures while answering important preschool questions.
The UAE’s E-Junior has acquired season two of the celebrated preschool series The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! (20 x 30’). Inspired by Dr. Seuss’ beloved Cat in the Hat, the series follows best friends Sally and Nick on magical journeys into the natural world. With the Cat as their guide and Thing One, Thing Two and their Fish along for the ride, every outing becomes an unpredictable adventure.
Additionally, RoboRoach (52 x 30’), a high-concept animated series about cockroach Reg and his half-robot, half-cockroach brother Rube has been purchased by BBC Kids in Canada.
“These three series are packed with lovable characters and fun-filled adventures that kids all over the world are immediately drawn towards,” said Joy Rosen, Co-Founder and CEO, Portfolio Entertainment. “They have enjoyed immense success globally and we’re very excited to ink these new deals with our partners in Canada, Norway and UAE.”
