Studio 100 Sends Blinky Bill Series to LatAm


Comarex has arranged an agreement between Studio 100 Media and National Geographic for the exclusive pay-TV rights to The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill in Latin America.

The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill is a reimagining of the book-based property about an adventurous koala. The animated show, meant for kids between the ages of 4 and 7, is produced by Flying Bark Productions in association with Telegael Teoranta in Ireland and Giant Wheel in India. It will debut on Nat Geo Kids in Latin America on July 1, followed by Brazil in September.

Martin Krieger, the head of global distribution at Studio 100 Media, stated: “We are delighted about this first agreement with National Geographic in LatAm. Blinky Bill will be one of the first shows airing on this newly created kids’ brand. We are confident that our cheeky koala bear will entertain kids in Latin America with his hilariously funny adventures. With Comarex we have established a successful collaboration and fruitful partnership over the years and we highly value their experience and expertise in distributing in Latin America.”

Diego Reck, the executive VP of National Geographic Partners in Latin America, added: “At National Geographic we are always looking for the best content to develop the potential of our viewers. The launch of Nat Geo Kids is one of our biggest challenges, with the most demanding public, and we are very excited to share this opportunity with Studio 100. The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill will contribute to developing the curiosity of the children through both exploration and entertainment.”
