The first season of the animated series BabyRiki, on offer from FUN Union, launched successfully on digital platforms in China.
The series exceeded “250 million views on just six major digital platforms, followed by broadcast on an additional 20 digital platforms” and CCTV’s kids’ channel, says Christine Brendle, the CEO of FUN Union. Production on the show’s third season will begin in early 2019.
Another highlight is KikoRiki, of which Imira Entertainment has licensed the first three seasons to TV3 in Spain. Then there is PinCode, another hit in China, with more than 20 licensing deals in the country.
“We will also be very busy working on Krash and Hehe, our co-production with CCTV Animation and Riki Group,” adds Brendle. “The pilot is in production now, and the series will launch in 2019.”
