Mondo TV Group, one of the largest European producers and distributors of animation content, has announced a major broadcasting agreement with the Spanish national broadcaster RTVE (Radio Television Española) for series one of “MeteoHeroes”. In detail, the deal finalized by Mondo TV Iberoamérica will see RTVE showing series one of “MeteoHeroes,” the enormously popular environmentally themed animated kids’ show co-produced by Mondo and Italian weather forecasting centre Meteo Operations Italia (MOPI), in a number of its markets, starting with previews in the spring.
The contract covers not only television broadcasts in Spain on Clan, the popular RTVE channel dedicated to children, but also in Latin America on Clan Internacional, RTVE kids’ channel for the Americas. This wide international coverage will also play an important part in supporting licensing and merchandising plans under way in these areas.
“MeteoHeroes” is the only cartoon in the world dedicated entirely to climate and environmental issues. Each episode focuses on issues related to ecology and respect for nature through the adventures of six superpowered kids who can control weather phenomena. Working alongside scientists and meteorologists at their futuristic HQ based in Gran Sasso Mountain National Park in Italy, the MeteoHeroes are trained to control their powers and fulfil their mission: to save the Earth.
“In a very short time, ‘MeteoHeroes’ has established itself as one of the leading series in our portfolio. In fact, a second series is already being planned. This agreement with RTVE, a major partner in Spanish-speaking markets worldwide, is a very important development, not only bringing the show to millions of potential viewers in a large number of new markets but also boosting the reach of the ongoing licensing and merchandising campaign,” said Matteo Corradi, CEO of Mondo TV.
