With this US acquisition, Belgium’s Studio 100 is taking a step further into international expansion.

The prodco also has a number of international coproductions to its credit. In Europe, it has strong links with KiKA, CBeebies and Canal+.

Josh Selig, founder and president of Little Airplane Productions, said: “I am thrilled that Little Airplane has joined forces with our friends at Studio 100 and all of their amazing companies.

“There is a great synergy between our businesses and our teams, and we look forward to creating and producing new content together that will resonate with children around the world.

Hans Ulrich Stoef, CEO of Studio 100 Media and m4e, said: “We have been working successfully with Josh and his team for many years and currently develop Fun Town Wheels and Rock (pictured), Tacco, Balloon with him.

“So we are very excited about having this opportunity to join forces on a broader level. After m4e and I linked up with Studio 100 at the beginning of this year, the next logical step in the international expansion was to go into partnership with Little Airplane Productions.”
