LYON, France– Discovery Italy has picked up “Dofus: Kerub’s Bazaar,” the TV series based on Ankama’s online role-playing vidgame Dofus.
Deal was unveiled at Cartoon Movie, the co-production forum dedicated to European animated films.
“Dofus” will be broadcast for the first time ever in Italy on K2, one of Discovery Italia’s free-to-air children’s channel, on March 10.
The vidgame is highly popular: It attracts 2.5 million players each month.
“Dofus players and newcomers will finally be able to enjoy our TV show in Italian.
