Chaplin & CoPGS Entertainment has notched more sales of Chaplin & Co, the series featuring the famous comic actor in animated form.

Produced by Method Animation and commissioned by France Televisions and Italy’s Rai, the series has been acquired by broadcasters including RTVE and Canal Panda in Spain, TV2 in Norway, CTC in Russia and Globosat in Brazil.

PGS has already shopped the 26x26mins series to Netflix in the US, Cartoon Network Japan and RTBF in Belgium among others and the distributor claims it is now showing in over 100 territories in all.

“It’s remarkable how the image and personality of the character created by Charlie Chaplin, his unmistakeable walk, toothbrush mustache and silly, childlike antics – are so identifiable around the world. That built-in recognisability has been the key to Chaplin & Co’s global success,” said Philippe Soutter, president of PGS Entertainment. “
