Creator One Animation has also inked a series of global broadcast deals for its animated comedy series.
One Animation has announced that it’s been nominated for a second consecutive year in the Animation Category of the 2018 International Emmy Kids Awards for its comedy series Oddbods. Last year, the show was recognised by the academy for Series 1 and this year the nomination for Series 2 joins numerous accolades and high profile partnerships currently being green-lit, with a slew of new deals being signed with leading broadcasters across multiple platforms internationally.
A global deal with Netflix brings more Oddbods to entertain families worldwide this Halloween with a Party Monsters special as well as seasonal cheer with The Festive Menace Christmas special.
The Emmy nominated studio has also struck a deal with Hulu to air Oddbods short form content and three Oddbods’ 22-minute specials -Party Monsters, The Festive Menace and Zee Force Five – across its US streaming services.
Further bolstering One Animation’s global footprint, a deal has been inked in China with Hunan Broadcasting System’s digital platform, Mango TV, to air Oddbods Season 2 (60 x 7) and the Christmas special. The deal will see the Oddbods entertain over 150m children across China.
The global roll-out has gathered momentum at a rapid pace with European broadcasters also scooping up content to meet demand; Canal+, Teletoon+ and CanalPlay (France) have secured both long form specials and short form formats, while TF1 (France) is also taking 46 x 5 Oddbods short form episodes for their SVOD platform TFOUMAX, and in the UK, ITVBe, has secured Oddbods Season 2, comprising 60 x 7 episodes, for its recently launched pre-school block, little Be.
The Oddbods are also heading to Chile, for VTR Comunicaciones Sp A’s SVOD platform, in a deal which will see 46 x 5 short-forms entertaining households across the territory.
