Saban Brands has recently announced that their animated preschool series, Julius Jr., will be making its way to Italy via Disney Junior this spring, after signing a broadcast distribution deal with the network. The deal will also see the Paul Frank-inspired series expanding to additional countries in Europe, Middle East, and Africa in the near future.
Julius Jr.’s exclusive international TV distributor, MarVista Entertainment, brokered the deal between Saban Brands and Disney. The series will also be airing in France via TF1 and in Latin America via Discovery Kids later this year. The series first debuted on US shores via Nick Jr. in September 2013.
