The Game Catchers

Zodiak Kids & Family Distribution, the sales arm of Banijay Kids & Family, has acquired the distribution rights to pre-school series The Game Catchers.

Produced by Studio Bozzetto and Sphere Media, the first season launched internationally last year, with a second season in production and confirmed with commissioning broadcasters RAI Kids, TVOKids and ICI Radio-Canada Télé.

Set in a colourful universe, the tiny planet Flossy is home to alien children of all kinds, and the very special Game Catchers HQ. Guided by Mr Moustache, the kids embark on a mission to travel the universe, and explore the planets, making friends with its inhabitants through playground games at every stop. The series is directed by Andrea Bozzetto and Branko Rakic, with Corrado Colleoni as the art director.

The 52 x 7-minutes season one launched with commissioning broadcasters RAI Yoyo and ICI Radio-Canada Telé. It was also acquired by Wing Sight (China), Ceska Televize (Czechia), RTÉ (Ireland), CBeebies (UK), TVOKids, The Knowledge Network and Toon-a-Vision (Canada), YLE (Finland), Canal Panda (Spain and Portugal), MediaCorp (Singapore), PCCW (Hong Kong) and Momokids (Taiwan). The show was previously distributed by Goldbee.

“Learning through entertainment is in high demand from our buyers, and the lovable characters and imaginative world created by Studio Bozzetto and Sphere Media provide the perfect setting to deliver this for young global audiences,” said Delphine Dumont, CCO of Banijay Kids & Family.
