GO-N Places Simon on Japan’s NHK


GO-N International has licensed the animated preschool series Simon to NHK in Japan.

NHK will begin airing Simon next year as part of its Mini Anime programming block. The show, which is made by GO-N Productions and France Télévisions, is based on the best-selling books penned by Stephanie Blake. A second season is currently available to international buyers.

Marie Congé, the head of sales and business development at GO-N International, commented: “We are overwhelmed to see Simon continuing to entertain children and their parents worldwide. With the launch of Simon in Japan by such a renowned broadcaster as NHK, this new and wonderful partnership highlights the incredible success of our preschool series on every continent.”
