"Fox & Hare"
APC Kids, the children’s entertainment division of leading co-production and distribution company APC Studios has signed a wave of international broadcast deals for animated series "Fox & Hare".
A host of new partners have signed on to broadcast the charming series including The Children’s Channel (Israel), CeskaTelevize (Czech Republic), TV5’s Unis TV (Québec Canada), RTVS (Slovakia), and BBC Alba (UK).
Lionel Marty, Managing Director of APC Kids, says: “'Fox & Hare' combines beautiful animation, quirky and lovable characters and light-hearted adventures making the series perfectly tailored to young audiences across the globe. We are delighted to be working with this latest group of leading broadcast partners to bring the show to even more families.”
Commissioned by Ketnet in Belgium and KRO- NCRV in The Netherlands, the series has previously sold to DR in Denmark, RTHK in Hong Kong, Piwi+ in France, RTBF Belgium, YLE Finland, RUV Iceland, ERR Estonia, and TVP Poland.
On the other hand, About Premium Content has picked up the global rights to “Jane New Generation” – a 52’ film produced by JF2 Prod and Tedhano Productions for French broadcaster Ushuaïa TV, which is an inspiring look at the life and legacy of the world-renowned primatologist, paleontologist, ethnologist, and female pioneer Dr. Jane Goodall.
Sixty years after Jane Goodall first arrived in Tanzania, she continues to deliver inspirational words and actions at a time of unprecedented change in the world. In a recent CNN interview in response to the global Coronavirus crisis and the way in which it has forced a drop in pollution through the decrease in fossil-fuelled travel, she said: “I’m hoping there is a groundswell of people that will grow because we now know what the world could be like and should be like. If we care about future generations, and of course I care passionately about the environment, then this is an opportunity to change, which please let us take advantage of. Let’s grow this feeling of so many people wanting change.”
Laurent Boissel and Emmanuelle Guilbart, Joint-CEOs and Co-Founders at APC, say: “'Jane New Generation' is a heart-felt and personal conversation with Jane Goodall reflecting on both her own work and the challenges of the future as she travels the world to promote environmental and social projects. Uniquely highlighting Merlin and Jane’s relationship as a framework for how she has motivated and inspired so many young people to care about and advocate for the environment and the people who protect it, this intimate film presents Jane’s lasting legacy as she sets up groups of young activists to pick up the mantel of her work.”
