Oggy and the Cockroaches Studio, Xilam, Secures New Asian Deals


French studio Xilam Animation, which is known for the sleeper hit Oggy and the Cockroaches, has recently secured a raft of new deals across the Asian region ahead of the Asia Television Forum (ATF). The first batch of the new deals covers presales for the new animated series Mr Magoo; in 2018, Cartoon Network Asia will be airing the 78 x 7 minute series in Southeast Asia, Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, India and Indian subcontinent, and New Zealand.

Next, Cartoon Network Asia has also ordered seasons 6 and 7 of Oggy and the Cockroaches. The new seasons will be debuting on the network’s channels next year. Previous seasons are currently airing in Asia via a number of different networks, including Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Netflix, and Amazon. All in all, the series is being distributed around the world and watched by more than 600 million households.

Aside from the CN deal, Xilam also scored another Asian deal with Chinese distributor Jetsen Huashi Wangju Kids, this time around it’s for the digital rights to season one of Xilam’s Zig and Sharko. The series is slated for release in China across their VOD platforms.

In India the company continues to make its mark– over the last 12 months, Xilam shows have been sold to Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, Sony as well as local Indian VOD platforms including Amazon India, Alt Digital and Hungama. Almost every Xilam property is airing in the country.

Moreover, UYoung in China is currently airing Oggy & the Cockroaches, and has also secured TV and VOD rights for the following properties which are set to air next year: light-hearted pre-school toon Paprika, and kids’ wildlife series If I Were an Animal.

Marc du Pontavice, Founder and President at Xilam Animation, said: “Asia is an important region for us and we are thrilled to be expanding the presence of our programming there in 2018. We’ve had so much success with our shows to date and look forward to building on that next year.”
