Mondo TV to Co-Pro Russia’s Cat Leopold


Mondo TV to Co-Pro Russia's Cat Leopold

Italian animation house Mondo TV will be co-producing the new 2D animated series based on popular Russian property Cat Leopold, in partnership with Russian Mobile TV. The 13 x 13 series is based on a classic Russian cartoon property that originally aired in the early 70s, with Mondo and Russian Mobile TV deciding to share revenues from the worldwide sales of the show across all media, along with distribution of licensing and merchandising. Mondo TV and its Consumer Products arm will be responsible for the TV and home video distribution as well as the licensing and merchandising rights outside of Russia and the US. The agreement is set to last for a period of five years, starting with the first broadcast in Russia.

“We are proud to be partners with Russian Mobile Television in the production of a series based on this property, which is a symbol of quality animation in Russia,” says Orlando Corradi, the president of Mondo TV. “We will respect the spirit of the property and work with RMT to give to the series the right mood to appeal to the younger generation.”

Andrey Kravtsov, CEO of Russian Mobile Television, added, “RMT has done extensive research globally and interviewed over a dozen European and American companies to select the right partner for the production and distribution of Cat Leopold. Mondo TV was chosen as the best company which understands the traditional Russian animation Cat Leopold and can continue to develop it, while preserving its brilliance and charm.”
