Zodiak Kids’ Floogals Lands in the U.K.


Banijay Group’s Zodiak Kids has inked a U.K. deal with Channel 5’s Milkshake! for the popular preschool series Floogals, based on the original idea by Dan Good.

The freshman season of Floogals was revoiced with a U.K. cast and debuted earlier this week as part of Channel 5’s refreshed Milkshake! programming block. The show, which combines CGI and live action, is about a trio of pocket-sized alien adventurers. It was developed by Zodiak Kids Studios with Jellyfish Pictures. Co-production partners include Sprout and Nevision.

Zodiak Kids CEO Jean-Philippe Randisi remarked: “We are delighted to add Channel 5 to the global sales roster of over 150 territories that have already seen international success. Milkshake! will be a great U.K. home for this British-born hit.”

Sarah Muller, the head of children’s at Channel 5, noted: “I am so happy to be bringing this home-grown series to the Milkshake! audience. Floogals is a sophisticated piece of British storytelling that will bring a fantastic and funny world alive for our young audience.”

Nigel Pickard, executive producer of Floogals and director at Nevision, added: “We look forward to working with the Channel 5 team to create the British version of Floogals that will entertain and inform the British audience.”
