WildBrain Inks New Broadcast Deals for The Deep


WildBrain has secured new deals for the fourth season of the animated series The Deep, co-produced with A Stark Production and Infinite Studios.

Season four of The Deep has been picked up by MBC Group’s channel MBC3 and streaming platform Shahid (MENA), RTP (Portugal), NRK (Norway), TVP (Poland), Yle (Finland) and Radio-Canada (Canada). These join commissioning broadcaster ABC (Australia), as well as CBBC (U.K.), Mediacorp (Singapore), WildBrain’s Family Channel (Canada), Super RTL (Germany) and SVT (Sweden), which have already committed to the new season.

Last year, ABC in Australia greenlit 13 new half-hour episodes for season four, alongside Mediacorp and the Australian Children’s Television Foundation, with the support of Screen NSW. Previous seasons of the show have been sold to over 130 markets.

Avrill Stark, CEO of A Stark Production, said: “We are delighted The Deep continues its journey around the globe, with season four now picked up by multiple broadcasters. Season four promises our audience another thrilling on-screen ride into the unchartered and mysterious depths of the ocean. The Nektons’ journey in this season is especially driven by a connection to family—something we all very much can relate to in a time where much of the world has endured being separated from loved ones.”

Caroline Tyre, VP of global sales and rights strategy at WildBrain, said: “It’s fantastic how The Deep continues to engage kids and families, winning new fans with each season in multiple markets across the globe. The stories are unique and relevant, with characters that resonate fully with this demographic, and these new deals underscore this international success and broad appeal.”
