Riki Group has inked a deal to make the animated series Kikoriki 3D: New Adventures and Pincode available in Arabic on the SVOD platform Noorplay.
Through the agreement, Noorplay has acquired non-exclusive SVOD rights for the third season of Kikoriki 3D: New Adventures and the first season of Pincode for five years. Both series will be available worldwide on the platform, with the exception of Russia and other territories in the CIS region.
Both Kikoriki 3D: New Adventures and Pincode, an edutainment spin-off of the Kikoriki series, have previously been broadcasted in Arabic on various TV channels and platforms in the MENA region.
Valeria Korotina, head of international business development and sales at Riki Group, said: “We are excited to enter into the partnership with such a family-oriented platform as Noorplay, which shares our core values. Both Kikoriki and Pincode were previously on air in the MENA region on TV, so we are now excited to move to the digital outreach for kids who speak Arabic all over the world.”
İnanç Vardar, chief content and business officer of Noorplay, added: ‘‘When building a kids content proposition from scratch, you look for premium and recognizable IP that children are familiar with and that their parents are comfortable with. Kikoriki and Pincode excel in this category, and we’re thrilled to provide these beloved series to our users in the near future.”
