Kids First has inked a raft of deals with international broadcasters for hit animated series Nate is Late

Paris-based children’s entertainment content distribution company Kids First has inked a raft of deals with international broadcasters for both season 1 (52 x 11’) and season 2 (52 x 11’) of hit animated series Nate is Late, produced by Watch Next Media and commissioned by France Télévisions (France), Super RTL (Germany) and Canal J (France).
