A new deal will see France Télévisions screen the brand new pre-school animation 44 Cats across France.
The show is a 52 x 13’ CGI pre-school comedy series that follows the daily adventures of Lampo, Milady, Pilou, and Meatball, four musician kittens who are part of a band named The Buffycats. The four protagonists live in the Clubhouse, a garage inside caring Granny Pina’s house, and love helping others with their ever creative solutions to everyday hitches. Their adventures explore the themes of friendship and altruism, tolerance, diversity and acceptance.
France Télévisions is one of Rainbow’s strongest broadcasting partners and will screen 44 Cats on France Télévisions channels from September 2019.
Claire Heinrich, head of youth programmes acquisitions at France Télévisions , commented: “We are very happy to partner again with Rainbow on this joyful and positive pre-school series. We were attracted by the stunning quality of animation and the simple, feel-good stories associated with physical comedy that embrace care for others, kindness, and inclusiveness – all positive attitude that we like to encourage – in a funny and musical way.”
Andrea Graciotti, head of TV sales at Rainbow Group, commented: “We are delighted to announce this deal with France Télévisions which has been a long-standing partner. We are very excited to be working on this new collaboration together, which will see 44 Cats become the biggest pre-school hit in years across France.”
