UYoung Licenses Boyster & Helen’s Little School


Superights has licensed Boyster and Helen’s Little School to UYoung Culture & Media Group, which will represent all TV, home entertainment and digital rights for both shows in mainland China.

Boyster is a comedy series produced by Je Suis Bien Content in association with The Walt Disney Company EMEA. It has already been picked up by France Télévisions, The Walt Disney Company (U.S., Southeast Asia, India, Japan, Latin America), Animax (South Korea) and French-speaking channel TV5 (global).

Helen’s Little School, meanwhile, is a co-production between Superprod and Muse Entertainment that will roll out next fall through France Télévisions’ France 5 (France); Télé-Québec, TFO, Knowledge Network and BBC Kids (Canada); and Discovery’s DKids (Latin America).

“Dedicated to delivering high-quality Western animation to China, UYoung is excited to bring Helen’s Little School and Boyster into China, where the shows are sure to be enjoyed by millions of Chinese children,” commented Clara Yang, the VP of UYoung.

“We are thrilled of this first collaboration with UYoung,” said Morgann Favennec, the deputy managing director at Superights who is in charge of international sales and acquisitions. “We feel there could be no better partners for our shows in China.”
