MIPTV News: ABC finds Zodiak record breakers series Officially Amazing

Australian pubcaster ABC has acquired Zodiak Kids’ new series Officially Amazing. The show, which explores the wacky world of record breaking, will launch at MIPTV.

Produced by All3Media prodco Lion Television, the 13x30mins series debuted in the UK on March 11 on CBBC and is currently stripped across the week at 7.45pm.

ABC plans to launch the show later in 2013.

Officially Amazing will topline Zodiak Kids’ new products in Cannes. The show travels the world exploring the bizarre world of record breakers and features archive footage from Guinness World Records.

“Both kids and families will be fascinated by watching some of the funniest, most ridiculous, scariest and amazing record attempts from around the world,” said Karen Vermeulen, senior VP, global sales and coproduction, Zodiak Kids.

Zodiak holds distribution rights to all Guinness World Records TV programming thanks to a deal struck at MIPCOM in 2011.
