Fireman Sam: Alien Alert Special Makes its Way to European Markets
After the Fireman Sam series has proven its worldwide appeal, DHX Media and Mattel Creations have announced new licensing agreements for a 60 minute Fireman Sam: Alien Alert special for key European markets.
The deals include a license to Pathe Live, which has plans for a theatrical release in France consisting of over 180 cinemas from February 2017, along with Universal home video in France. Italy’s Cartoonito also picked up TV rights for the special, and justbridge has also secured rights to theatrical and home video for Germany. The show’s 10th season was also secured by Clan TV in Spain and France 5 in Europe.
Fireman Sam is notable for featuring the voice of multi-award winning Scottish actor David Tennant (Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Jessica Jones) as the humorous villain Buck Douglas. Alien Alert will feature a new location and a bunch of new characters. A new storyline will provide new twists and turns while bringing the same kind of action and adventure that kids loved from Fireman Sam.
