WeKids Asia will distribute children’s animations Maya the Bee, Vic the Viking, Nils Holgersson and Blinky Bill in China, following a distribution deal with Germany’s Studio 100 Media.

Studio100 Media Maya The BeeUnder the deal, WeKids has the rights to distribute the shows to television broadcasters, video-on-demand (VOD) platforms and for home video.

“We are convinced that our partnership with WeKids is the right step to significantly increase the awareness of our characters in the Chinese market and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation,” said Martin Krieger, head of global distribution, Studio 100 Media.

Sean Chu, CEO of WeKids, added: “Chinese kids and families love story-driven classic titles like Nils Holgersson. Furthermore, because classic Nils Holgersson was one of few animated TV series introduced into China from abroad in the 1980s, I believe today’s Chinese parents will want to share their affection for Nils Holgersson with their kids as they watch the newly animated Nils series”.

WeKids, which was spun-off in December 2015 from Ciwen Media Group, has already acquired more than 3,500 episodes from children’s shows from around the globe. The content is branded as BuddiesTV across a range of platforms in China.
