MIPJunior Spotlight: ITV Studios Global Entertainment


ITV Studios Global Entertainment’s kids’ content slate includes the new animated series Robozuna, which launched on CITV in the U.K. to strong ratings.

Robozuna is a brand-new proposition that hasn’t aired on [free-to-air] TV aside from in the U.K., and it’s ready to go with 40 episodes available,” says Steve Green, executive VP of kids content and distribution.

There are 78 episodes now available for the adventure hit Thunderbirds Are Go, with rights offered in multiple territories worldwide. “Thunderbirds Are Go has a heritage in several markets due to its connection to the original Thunderbirds series,” Green says. “Aside from that, the series has been made to an incredibly high and exacting standard, and it has proven extremely popular in multiple territories already.”

Green adds, “We want to raise the profile of our kids’ properties and series to showcase the original and unique IP that we are extremely proud of.”
