Zodiak Signs New Deals for The Ranch
Zodiak Kids has recently nabbed a whole slew of new deals for Tele Images Productions’ The Ranch, which already made its market debut at last year’s MIP Junior event. The series was already pre-sold to French broadcasters Teletoon+ and Equidia Life (an equestrian lifestyle channel), Italy’s DeA Kids and Super, Germany’s Ki.Ka, Norway’s NRK Super, Belgium’s VRT and DVD distributors Bridge Rights (Germany) and TF1 Video (France).
The list of new sales for the series consist of Free TV deals with RTS (Switzerland), SVT Barnkananeln (Sweden), POP TV (Slovenia) and CFI (French Africa), plus Pay TV sales with Teletoon+ / Canal+ (Poland), Minimax (CEE), Noga (Israel) and Smart Cocuk (Turkey).
The Ranch (26 x 26) focuses on the adventures of four teens who all have a passion for horse-riding, and an injured wild stallion called Mistral that the quartet have accidentally found and rescued, with the hopes of taming it in the heart of the wild Camargue countryside. The show is currently doing well on TF1, averaging a 22.6% share of the 4-19 demographic (+16% over average time slot).
