Mike the Knight arises in France

Mike the Knight

TF1 in France has picked up new Nelvana Studio and Hit Entertainment preschool coproduction Mike the Knight.

The 52×12′ CGI series, created by Alexander Bar (Lunar Jim) and penned by Bob the Builder head scribe Marc Seal, began development at Hit two years ago and Canada’s Nelvana came onboard in the fall.

Mike is due for delivery this autumn, and Nelvana parent Corus Entertainment yesterday announced TF1 was the first overseas customer for the series, which tells the story of a small boy’s efforts to become a hero in medieval times. Treehouse is due to air the show in Canada.

Nelvana Enterprises holds broadcast and home entertainment rights in Latin America and France, as well as broadcast rights in the US. Hit holds the rights in all other territories.
