Discovery Kids Brings Wissper to Lat-Am


Fresh new CG animated kids series Wissper will be gracing Latin American TV screens in later this year and all the way through spring 2016, courtesy of a deal between German brand management and media company m4e AG and Discovery Networks Latin America/US Hispanic. The deal gives Discovery Networks LA/USH exclusive Pay TV and basic subscription TV rights for Latin American territories.

Wissper is targeted towards preschoolers, focusing on the adventures of the eponymous little girl and her ability to communicate with animals, allowing her to understand and help solve their problems.

“We are extremely happy about closing this deal with Discovery Networks and covering the important Latin American market, not only because we believe that Wissper will be more than well received there, but also because the broadcast will provide an important basis for developing a strong licensing program in Latin America as well”, commented Jo Daris, Head of Operations at m4e AG.

“Wissper is a series that fits perfectly with the production values and high quality standards Discovery Kids is known for in Latin America and instills in young children the importance of caring for animals and the love of nature,” adds Flavio Medeiros, Director of Program Sourcing and Acquisitions for Discovery Kids. “We are happy to have Wissper as part of our programming lineup.”
