Following the launch of Jungle Beat’s season 3 at MIPTV and the announcement there of a multi-territory deal with Cartoon Network EMEA, Monster Entertainment has closed a raft of new sales of the animation series to broadcasters around Europe, Africa, North America and Latin America.
The new season of Jungle Beat has been sold to major European networks including YLE in Finland, SVT in Sweden and VRT in Belgium, all of which have also renewed the first two seasons of the series. Monster Entertainment has also sold two seasons of Jungle Beat to SRC, the public broadcaster in French-speaking Canada, and Jim Jam in multiple territories all over Europe. Gulli has acquired the three seasons of Jungle Beat for its audience in French-speaking Africa, NRK has picked up the new season in Norway and Cartoon Network has also now picked up the new season for broadcast throughout Latin America and Brazil.
Produced by Sunrise Productions in South Africa and distributed by Monster Entertainment, Jungle Beat is a fun, family-friendly series that follows a team of adventurers and the different animals they encounter in nature. It’s aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 8 years old, but ratings have proved its appeal for a much wider audience.
Season 4 of Jungle Beat is already in production and there are plans to build the brand further through the production of further seasons, an app which has just been completed together with web games and licensing activities.
