APC Kids Sends Kid-E-Cats to France’s Gulli


APC Kids has inked a deal with the French kids’ free-to-air TV channel Gulli for the first and second seasons of Kid-E-Cats.

Kid-E-Cats, which launched on Gulli on January 6, tells the story of kittens Cookie, Pudding and their kid sister Candy, who are always ready to jump into action with their funny problem-solving suggestions. The series is produced by CTC Media and Studio Metrafilms.

Seasons one and two of Kid-E-Cats are now available on Nick Jr. internationally in over 170 territories, following a deal signed between APC Kids and Nickelodeon International. Other recent sales include the first season getting picked up by Timvision (Italy) and Ceska Televize (Czech Republic); the second season by TG4 (Ireland) and TV Puls (Poland); and both seasons by MBC (MENA).

Lionel Marty, managing director of APC Kids, said: “Kid-E-Cats’ energy and warmth continues to resonate internationally and we are delighted to strengthen the brand’s footprint in France, giving new audiences the chance to enjoy the adventures of Cookie, Pudding and Candy on such a well-respected channel as Gulli.”

Philippe Bony, general manager of M6 Group in charge of thematic TV channels division and president of Gulli, added: “We are delighted to welcome APC’s Kid-E-Cats on both the linear and non-linear services of Gulli, kids’ favorite channel in France, and to be part of this charming show’s international journey.”
