CAKE Scores Global Sales for Preschool Series Pablo


CAKE has sold the animated series Pablo, about a young boy who’s on the autism spectrum, to a number of new broadcasters around the world.

Pablo first premiered late last year on CBeebies and RTÉjr. The 52×11-minute show is now headed to Universal Kids in the U.S., SVT in Sweden, YLE in Finland, ABC in Australia, Hunan in China, C&J in Korea, RTHK in Hong Kong, Showmax in Africa and Netflix in multiple territories.

Pablo is produced by Paper Owl Films for CBeebies and RTÉjr, in association with Kavaleer Productions and Ingenious. A second season has been commissioned.

Ed Galton, the CCO and managing director at CAKE, and exec producer on Pablo, said: “We are thrilled with the international response Pablo has received since MIPCOM. A unique show celebrating creativity, individuality and thinking differently, its message has visibly resonated with broadcasters around the world.”
