Svensk Filmindustri, Studio 100 Ink Heidi Deal
Svensk Filmindustry and Studio 100 have secured a VOD and home video distribution agreement for the revived CG animated series Heidi. The series is showing a broadcast success across Scandinavia on MTV3’s kids channel Juniori (Finland) and NRK Super (Norway), and later this year, it will land on SVT Barnkanlen (Sweden).
The agreement grants Svensk Filmindustri exclusive home entertainment rights for Finland, Iceland, Denmark and Norway. The initial TVOD, DVD and EST release is planned for September 2016, with an SVOD release set for summer 2017 on SF Kids Play.
Targeted at 6-8 years olds, Heidi is a lively and adorable show that is based on the famous 1880 children’s book written by Swiss author Johanna Spyri. The animated series is produced by Studio 100 Animation and Flying Bark Productions, with Studio 100 Media managing the worldwide distribution.
