Comarex as Studio 100’s exclusive distribution partner for Latin America arranged the deal.

Studio 100 Media and National Geographic closed an agreement for the exclusive pay-TV rights of CGI animated series The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill (52 x 12’) for the LATAM territories. The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill will air on National Geographic’s brand-new children’s multiplatform “Nat Geo Kids”. It is targeted at kids from 4 to 7 and launches on July 1st 2017 in Latin America, followed by Brazil this September.

Martin Krieger, Head of Global Distribution at Studio 100 Media, commenting on the deal said, “We are delighted about this first agreement with National Geographic in LATAM. Blinky Bill will be one of the first shows airing on this newly created kids brand. We are confident that our cheeky koala bear will entertain kids in Latin America with his hilariously funny adventures. With Comarex we have established a successful collaboration and fruitful partnership over the years and we highly value their experience and expertise in distributing in Latin America.

At National Geographic we are always looking for the best content to develop the potential of our viewers. The launch of Nat Geo Kids is one of our biggest challenges, with the most demanding public, and we are very excited to share this opportunity with Studio 100. ‘The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill’ will contribute to develop the curiosity of the children through both exploration and entertainment”, said Diego Reck, Executive Vice President National Geographic Partners in Latin America.

Blinky Bill is a true Australian icon and comes back with new stories and adventures in The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill in a witty, modern CGI version of the classic series. The brand-new series is produced by Flying Bark Productions in association with Telegael Teoranta (Ireland) and Giant Wheel (India).
