NRK in Norway and SVT in Sweden are latest broadcasters to line up for the pre-school property.

Entertainment One (eOne) continues to accelerate awareness of its new pre-school animated property Ricky Zoom, by signing new deals with Nordic broadcasters. NRK in Norway and SVT in Sweden will debut series 1 of the show from November and spring 2020 respectively.

“We’re excited that these latest deals with NRK and SVT will bring Ricky Zoom to audiences in the Nordics,” said eOne’s Monica Candiani, EVP international content sales, Family & Brands. “Ricky Zoom is a show all about vehicles, friendship and adventure with meaningful life lessons woven into the storylines. There’s nothing quite like it in the pre-school sector right now, and the long list of top-tier broadcast partners signed to date demonstrates that it clearly has global appeal.”

This latest announcement adds to a rapidly growing slate of international broadcasters launching Ricky Zoom across multiple territories from this autumn. These include Nickelodeon (US), Nick Jr. and Channel 5’s Milkshake (UK), Treehouse (Canada), Super RTL (Germany), Clan TV (Spain), Gulli (France), RAI (Italy), Youku (China), Discovery Kids (Latin America), Karusel (Russia), Minika Cocuk (Turkey), EBS (S.Korea) and Spacetoon (MENA).
