London-based content distribution company Media IM Incorporated is celebrating a significant win with Disney companies in the US, CEE, Middle East, Africa, Spain and Japan for its Sunny Bunnies animated kids’ comedy series.

sunnybunny 23 Jan The Sunny Bunnies are five beaming balls that can appear anywhere there is a source of light, from sunshine to moonlight. In each episode, the creatures go to a different location and embarking on ‘mischievous’ adventures and at the end of every episode there is a collection of bloopers. Media IM specialises in premium animation and family entertainment, and the new deals for the 52 x 3.5’ show, created by Belarus’s Digital Light Studio, means that it has now been sold to broadcasters across US, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.

Under the new three-year deals, the first season of Sunny Bunnies will launch on Disney Junior in the US in 2017, on Disney’s CEEMA channels in all territories, on Disney Channel in Turkey and across free and pay-TV Disney channels in Spain and Spanish-speaking Andorra. Disney Japan, meanwhile, has taken the exclusive rights to the series in a deal that marks Sunny Bunnies’ TV premiere in the territory. Media IM also has the exclusive worldwide rights to the series outside of Russia, CIS and China.

“The response to Sunny Bunnies has been unprecedented for a show from a relatively unknown studio from a country which is not known for its TV productions,” said Media IM co-founder and joint MD Maria Ufland: “The deal with Disney in so many territories is a massive vote of confidence for this show, proving that excellent quality original content can come from any place. We believe that Sunny Bunnies will be a global hit and are delighted that our gut feeling that this show is truly something special is proving right. It’s given us a huge impetus to continue to seek further quality content in unexpected places.”
