Zodiak Kids Secures a Raft of Sales for Cartoon Comedy Rekkit Rabbit
Zodiak Kids, Zodiak Media Group’s children’s production and distribution arm has concluded a number of deals for the children’s hit cartoon comedy Rekkit Rabbit (Season 1 and 2 both 52 x13’).
Rekkit Rabbit, produced by Marathon Media, part of Zodiak Kids, has been sold to Nickelodeon Germany, who has taken Season 1 and TV3 Spain, ETB Spain and Switchover Media’s leading Italian kids’ Channel K2, who will premiere the show in June 2012, have all taken season 1 and 2.
Created by Vincent Chalvon Demersay and David Michel of Marathon Media and helmed by Reid Harrisson (The Simpsons) and Mitch Watson (Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated), Rekkit Rabbit is a mass appeal cartoon comedy with a very wacky edge.
Originally produced for TF1 and Disney XD, this animated comedy is about Jay, a normal twelve-year old boy and his friend – an eccentric ten-foot tall magical rabbit who has run away from his job as a magician’s assistant. Jay now has to cope with his new super-enthusiastic, supernatural, super-clingy friend, whose unreliable magic is going to get this odd couple into the craziest situations.
Rekkit Rabbit launched on TF1 this spring and is one of their top rating children’s series.
Zodiak Kids holds global rights in all media for the property.
