Starz nabs three Alphanim toons

Shingle sells 'Green Squad,' 'Gawayn,' 'Toto Trouble'

PARIS — U.S. premium cabler Starz has acquired three animated skeins from Alphanim, the Gaumont-owned kids’ entertainment shingle.

Starz nabbed toon adventure skein “The Green Squad,” a second season of the adventure-comedy “Gawayn,” as well as comicbook-based comedy “Toto Trouble.” The U.S. network already airs various Alphanim skeins such as “Santa’s Apprentice,” “Hairy Scary” and “Zombie Hotel.”

Alphanim has also inked other key international deals including sales to Australia, South Korea, Eastern Europe and Finland.

Deals were unveiled Monday by Pierre Belaisch, Alphanim’s managing topper.

Shingle produces and distributes a catalog of more than 30 kids’ TV skeins, and boasts a 800 half-hours of animation broadcast in more than 130 countries.

Alphanim’s production slate includes a skein based on the 50-year-old character “Calimero.”
