Xilam Animation is boosting its reach in Latin America through a significant package deal with TC Ecuador. The Ecuadorian public broadcaster has picked up slapstick comedy Zig & Sharko (78 x 7’) and A Kind of Magic (26 x 26’), the studio’s hit animation based on character designs by illustrator Arthur de Pins. Rounding out the deal, TC Ecuador has also acquired seasons 3 – 7 of Xilam’s internationally successful flagship series Oggy and the Cockroaches (339×7’). The trio of shows will air on TC Ecuador’s channel over the coming year.

Morgann Favennec, EVP Global Sales Development at Xilam Animation, said: “As we continue to build upon the global success of our portfolio, Latin America is of increasing importance to our business and presents a significant growth opportunity across our line-up of kids’ animated comedies.
