Jetpack Distribution Scores New Deals for Moley


Jetpack Distribution has inked new deals for the series Moley and the 30-minute special Master Moley: By Royal Invitation in Germany, New Zealand and Brazil.

Germany’s ZDF and New Zealand’s TVNZ acquired the free-TV and VOD rights, while Latin America’s Globo picked up the TV and SVOD rights to air in Brazil.

Moley, inspired by bedtime stories about a magical mole, was created by James Reatchlous and features Warwick Davis (Harry Potter, Star Wars, Moominvalley), Julie Walters (Mamma Mia!, Harry Potter, Billy Elliot), Gemma Arterton (Their Finest, Quantum of Solace), Richard E. Grant (Can you Ever Forgive Me?, Horrid Henry: The Movie), Toto Igawa (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Thomas & Friends) and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones, The Crown, Gosford Park).

“Charming, warmhearted and extremely high-quality, Moley is a timeless gem, perfect for families across the world,” said Dominic Gardiner, CEO of Jetpack Distribution. “I’m very happy to see the show acquired by such prestigious networks, ones we highly value, respect and enjoy working with. We’re looking forward to bringing Moley to more screens globally.”

Reatchlous said, “I couldn’t be happier with the new broadcast platforms that Jetpack have secured for Moley. We’ve always had large aspirations, and these broadcasters are a perfect fit for our show. We want as many children as possible around the world to become friends with Moley and all of the other characters in the secret world of MoleTown. With these networks, Moley has found a great new home in three different continents and will, I’m sure, become a household favorite with lots more children and their families.”
