ZDF Enterprises Sells Trio of VRT Children’s Titles


ZDF Enterprises has notched up European sales for Hoodie, Buck and #LikeMe, commissioned by Belgium’s VRT.

Hoodie has been picked up by RTV Slovenia, Canal+ International and Amazon Digital for all German-speaking territories. The 52×11-minute superhero story is centered on a perfectly normal boy with an exceptional talent for parkour.

Buck has been licensed to Rai in Italy, EITB in Spain, Telecomp ERA in Kazakhstan and RTV Slovenia. The 32×15-minute series explores the story of a boy, struggling with his home life and bullying at school, who finds solace in computer games. His world changes when he comes across Commander Buck, a digital hero who never lets him down.

#LikeMe was picked up by DR Byen (Denmark), Amazon Media for the U.K. and Amazon Digital for German-speaking territories. The 26×26-minute series is about a young teenager who enjoys a happy life. She is surrounded by her close-knit family and friends and thrives at the village school until her mom is diagnosed with cancer. Moving to a city to be closer to the hospital throws her life into turmoil as she tries to navigate her way in this new world.

Peter Lang, VP ZDFE.junior, ZDF Enterprises, said: “These three shows, from our children’s catalog of 20,000 episodes in 25 languages are uniquely different but equally appealing. The sales that range from countries as diverse as the U.K. and Kazakhstan demonstrates how widely good quality children’s content travels.”
