ZODIAK KIDS & FAMILY DISTRIBUTION ACQUIRES THE GAME CATCHERS

4 Jul - 2023

Banijay Kids & Family has announced its sales arm, Zodiak Kids & Family Distribution, has acquired the distribution rights to pre-school series The Game Catchers.

Produced by Studio Bozzetto and Sphere Media, the first series launched internationally last year, with a second season in production and confirmed with commissioning broadcasters RAI Kids, TVOKids and ICI Radio-Canada Télé.

Set in a colourful universe, the tiny planet Flossy is home to alien children of all kinds, and the very special Game Catchers HQ. Guided by Mr. Moustache, the kids embark on their mission to travel the universe, and explore the planets, making friends with its inhabitants through playground games at every stop. Each game is different depending on the planet and the Game Catchers want to discover them all!

Delphine Dumont, Chief Commercial Officer, Banijay Kids & Family says: “The Game Catchers is a delightful addition to the Zodiak Kids & Family portfolio, complementing our pre-school offerings with a unique and original concept. Learning through entertainment is in high demand from our buyers, and the lovable characters and imaginative world created by Studio Bozzetto and Sphere Media provide the perfect setting to deliver this for young global audiences”.

The Game Catchers won the Pulcinella Award for Best Preschool series at the 25th edition of Cartoons on the Bay and the Preschool Award by the Italian Parents Movement (Moige) which recognises family-friendly TV and web programmes. The series is directed by Andrea Bozzetto and Branko Rakic. Corrado Colleoni is the Art Director. Season 1 (52 x 7’) launched with commissioning broadcasters RAI Yoyo and ICI Radio-Canada Telé. It was also acquired by Wing Sight (China), Ceska Televize (Czechia), RTÉ (Ireland), CBeebies (UK), TVOKids, The Knowledge Network and Toon-a-Vision (Canada), YLE (Finland), Canal Panda (Spain and Portugal), MediaCorp (Singapore), PCCW (Hong Kong) and Momokids (Taiwan).
