'Fish 'n' Chips,' 'Guess What,' 'Zou' among titles finding int'l buyers

Paris-based Cyber Group Studios, France’s most prolific animation producer, has announced sales across its production slate on the eve of Mip Junior.

“Fish ‘n’ Chips,” a pacy HD CGI comedy co-produced with France’s Timoon Animation and South Korea’s SAMG, and interactive series “Guess What” have both been acquired by Italy’s RAI and Slovenia’s Pop TV.

Launched at 2010’s Mipcom, and still in production, “Tales of Tatonka” has closed CIS (Karusel and Mysteria), Belgium (RTBF), Eastern Europe (Minimax) and South Korea (KTH) among 20 broadcaster deals covering 80 territories.

KTH, along with Africa’s CFI and Israel’s Hop, have also picked up “Ozie Boo Save the Planet,” while “Animalia,” a CGS pick-up for international distrubution which won composer Christopher Elwes an Emmy Award, has added Ukraine (Inter), Colombia’s (Incomsa) and CIS (Mysteria) to bring its sales tally to 130 territories.

CGS’ sales announcements come as first episodes of one of its flagship toon shows, “Zou,” will be seen for the first time at a market, Mip Junior, which kicks off Saturday in Cannes.

Developed for Disney and turning on a huggable 5-year-old zebra, pre-school “Zou” has been pre-sold to Disney Junior for Europe, Middle East and Afrca, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand and South East Asia.

Beyond “Zou,” CGS will also introduce two new kids series: pre-school “Patch Pillows,” produced by China’s GDC and Hong Kong’s Agogo Corp., and “Nutri Ventures,” co-produced by Portuguese broadcaster RTP, introducing children to healthy eating.
