Mike the Knight

By Wendy Goldman Getzler

HIT Entertainment’s new animation Mike the Knight has been presold to four further territories.

The medieval preschool series has been snapped up by ABC Australia, SVT Sweden, DRTV Denmark and NRK in Norway, bringing the total number of presales to seven.

The CGI series, co-produced with Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Studio, will premiere on Treehouse in Canada this September, TF1 in France in October and CBeebies in the UK in November. The four new territories are due to launch the series shortly after.

HIT will be showcasing the series’ first full episode at MIPTV next week, where buyers will be introduced to the 10-year old titular character that is destined to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a brave and noble knight.

Commenting on the latest acquisitions Alison Homewood EVP of Worldwide Programming HIT Entertainment said: “It is testament to the strength of Mike the Knight that so many broadcasters have picked up the series before we’ve had an episode to show them. We will be showcasing our first full episode at MIPTV and are confident that this will create an even greater appetite for this new pre-school sensation.”
