Nickelodeon UK Buys Rights To Transformers Animated

From C21 Media:

Transformers to battle in new territories

UK-based kids content distributor Entertainment Rights (ER) has secured three new broadcast deals for Transformers Animated (26x22'/1x70' special).

The latest instalment in the ongoing battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons is set to air on Nickelodeon in the UK, Gulli in France and Germany's Super RTL. It recently launched in the US on Cartoon Network.

A product of Cartoon Network Studios in Los Angeles, Transformers Animated promises a "bold new 2D style" of animation and a suite of new characters alongside the return of old favourites like Optimus Prime and Megatron. ER, which holds worldwide distribution rights (excluding North America), has already sold the series to over 20 territories.

"We recently extended distribution rights to include Latin America, where broadcasters are also showing great demand for the series," said ER's director of international, Chloe van den Berg. "We expect to announce new agreements in due course."
