GO-N Inks Deal to Bring Simon to Spain


Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE) has picked up Simon, a preschool show co-produced by GO-N Productions.

RTVE is set to air Simon on Clan in 2019. GO-N International also reached an agreement with El Ocho Licencias y Promociones, which will cover the property’s Spanish and Portuguese licensing representation. France Télévisions is co-producing the show’s second season and will premiere the new episodes for Christmas 2018.

GO-N previously secured deals with Netflix, NHK (Japan), Disney Junior in Latin America and Southeast Asia, Channel 5’s Milkshake! (U.K.), NRK (Norway), RUV (Iceland), RTS (Switzerland), HOP (Israel), ERR (Estonia), Jetsen Huashi Wangju Kids (China) and TV5 worldwide. In addition to France Télévisions, Simon has already launched on Cartoonito (Italy), Télé-Québec (Canada), SVT (Sweden), YLE (Finland) and VRT Ketnet (Belgium).

Simon has been very popular with young audiences,” said Marie Congé, the head of sales and business development at GO-N. “I am overwhelmed to see our preschool show landing in Spain with such a renowned broadcaster as Clan and I have extensive confidence in El Ocho’s team to position the Simon brand as a top preschool property.”
