Episodes of Nevision’s hit animated series will air in UK from December.

The independent UK production company Nevision has struck an agreement with Nick Jr. Too in the UK for its animated series Floogals. From December, the Viacom-owned pre-school channel Nick Jr. Too will air the first 52 x 11’ episodes of the series, which is co-produced by Nevision, Zodiak Kids Studios and Universal Kids with UK animation studio Jellyfish Pictures.

Currently in production on a third season for co-production partner Universal Kids, NBCUniversal and commissioned by Channel 5’s Milkshake!, Floogals is a ground-breaking mix of photo-real CGI and live action.

The series follows Fleeker, Flo and Boomer, pocket-sized alien adventurers on a mission to observe, experience and detail the new and exciting world around them – Planet Earth. Arriving in their spaceship from the distant planet Floog, the Floogals are on a mission to document everything around them in the peculiar world of “hoomans”.

In the UK, Floogals is in the Top 5 shows for the Milkshake! block and has also reached a total of 8.1m viewers since launching in July 2017.

Louise Bucknole, VP programming VIMN Kids, commented: “We are delighted to be introducing the adventurous and curious world of Floogals to the Nick Jr. Too audience.”

Nigel Pickard, executive producer and director at Nevision, added: “Floogals goes from strength to strength on both sides of the Atlantic, continuing to be a top-rated show for both Univeral Kids and Milkshake! We are excited that Nick Jr. Too has picked up the show, which will introduce the Floogals to a whole new audience across the UK.”

Outside the UK, Zodiak Kids has sold the series to multiple territories including: ABC Australia, Canal Plus (France), Cartoonito and DeAJunior (Italy), Discovery Kids (Latin America), TVO & Knowledge Network (Canada), Hop! Channel (Israel), Mediacorp (Singapore), Thai PBS (Thailand), Spectrum Film (Indonesia), YLE (Finland), Canal Panda (Portugal), MBC (Middle East), Discovery (Asia) and RT (Hong Kong). NCircle has also picked up the DVD rights for North America.
