ABC Picks Up Pat the Dog for US Screening on the Disney Channel


If you have a penchance for French cartoons, particularly the quirky comedies that have more laughs than sense most of the time, the ABC Cable Networks Group’s acquisition of the US broadcast rights for French CG cartoon comedy Pat the Dog will be a boon.

Originally launched by Indie French distributor Superights at last year’s MIP Junior marketplace, the 78 x 7 series has been acquired by ABC Cable Networks Group with plans to debut on Disney Channel U.S. this summer.

Pat the Dog is produced by Superprod in Vanilla Seed’s studio in Anghoulême (France) and Italian company Animoka for Canal+ and RAI, and is adapted from the mobile game sensation played by 27 million users around the globe. The series so far has already enjoyed sales to RTBF, VRT, TSR, Radio Canada, Discovery Latin America and Turner EMEA and APAC. The terrestrial sales will start at MIP-TV next week.
