Cake, run by MD Genevieve Dexter, has brokered Edgar & Ellen broadcast deals with pubcaster NRK in Norway and pay-TV firm Noga Communications in Israel, which operates The Children's Channel.

LUK Internacional has also acquired all rights to the TV series in Spain, Portugal, and Andorra and will serve as a specialised distribution partner. Bardel Entertainment, meanwhile, has sold the show to SRC in Canada.
