News brief: Cyber Group takes Zou to PBS Kids Sprout

French producer and distributor Cyber Group Studios has sold its preschool series Zou to the PBS Sprout children’s channel in the US.

The 104x11mins series, about a five year old zebra, will air from September on the channel in the three-hour Sunny Side Up block.

The show first launched on Disney Junior in the UK last May and a second series was ordered after it performed well for the channel.

PBS Kids Sprout is a joint venture between PBS, Sesame Workshop, NBCUniversal and Apax.
