Xilam Extends Presence in Italy with Discovery Italy’s K2 Broadcast Deal

23 Oct - 2017

Tags from the story: K2, Xilam.

Xilam, the award-winning French animation production company, has licensed more than 400 half-hours of preschool and kids’ content to Discovery Italy’s kids’ channel K2.

Xilam and K2 have a successful history with Xilam shows among the top rated series on K2 and as a result, Xilam and K2 have consolidated this success and inked a number of new output deals.

K2 has acquired a number of new Xilam properties, including Rolling with the Ronks, Paprika, Mr Magoo and Moka. The kids channel has also renewed the exclusive free TV rights to a number of Xilam’s hit series including Oggy & the Cockroaches, The Daltons and Zig & Sharko.

The agreement adds to Xilam’s growing distribution presence across Europe, with shows delivering outstanding ratings on many key networks such as Super RTL and Disney Channel in Germany, K2 in Italy, or Gulli in France, RTBF and VRT in Benelux. It also attests the appeal of shows such as Oggy & the Cockroaches, with the new season 5 (78 x 7’) whose launch already ranks number one on France’s Gulli channel.

Marc du Pontavice, Founder and President at Xilam Animation, said: “Italy is increasingly becoming one of our key territories for distribution growth and these deals further boost the presence of our brands. These newest deals further underscore our position as the go-to distributor for kids’ content with proven global appeal.
