Entertainment One (eOne) has secured a broadcast deal in Germany with SUPER RTL for its preschool hit Peppa Pig.
SUPER RTL will premiere brand-new episodes of season seven, which have never been aired in Germany before, from March 1, 2018. In addition, SUPER RTL’s licensing division will be responsible for the Peppa Pig licensing program in the country, with a focus on lining up new partners, as well as managing existing relationships with licensees in the territory.
Claude Schmit, the CEO at SUPER RTL, said, “We’re extremely excited about the arrival of Peppa Pig on SUPER RTL. The show’s winning combination of humor, charm and relatable stories of everyday family life is sure to appeal to our preschool audience and we look forward to bringing Peppa Pig to homes across Germany next year.”
Monica Candiani, the head of international sales at eOne Family, commented, “We’re delighted that Peppa Pig will be airing on the number one destination for kids in Germany and we look forward to Peppa joining their preschool lineup.”
