The France-based distributor sells 52x11mins Robin Hood: Mischief in Sherwood, which is produced by Method Animation, DQ Entertainment, ZDF Enterprises and Fabrique D’Images.

In Europe it has been bought by Spain’s RTVE and its public broadcast counterpart in Belgium VRT. In Portugal it has been acquired by Chellomedia’s Canal Panda cable channel and in Finland by free-to-air broadcaster MTV3.

In North America it has been acquired by French-language Canadian broadcaster Tele-Quebec.

The CGI show, which is aimed at 6-to-10 year olds, was originally commissioned by France’s TF1, Germany’s ZDF and Italy’s DeAgostini.

“Robin Hood is an instantly identifiable character that parents associate with the classic story and feel good about introducing to their kids,” said Guillaume Soutter, PGS’ cofounder and head of international sales.
