French animation studio Xilam Animation has secured a raft of new deals in Southern Europe across its portfolio, including a pair of package deals in Portugal which will see a total of 100 hours of content head to the territory and new sales in Turkey and Greece.

Portuguese broadcaster RTP has acquired nearly 80 hours of programming across Xilam’s titles “Coach Me If You Can,” “The Daltons” and “Athleticus,” along with renewals for both seasons of “Floopaloo, Where Are You?” and “What’s the Big Idea?” Xilam has also scored a new deal with Dreamia for its pay-TV children’s channel Biggs covering more than 25 hours across “Moka’s Fabulous Adventures” and “Hubert & Takako.”

In addition, Xilam has inked a deal with WarnerMedia in Turkey for seasons five through seven of “Oggy and the Cockroaches” and “Oggy and the Cockroaches – The Movie.” Additionally, local network Minika Cocuk has acquired “Athleticus” and “Moka’s Fabulous Adventures” for the market, which will start airing this summer.

In Greece, Xilam has signed a free-to-air and VOD deal with public broadcaster ERT for titles like “Athleticus,” seasons one and two of “Floopaloo, Where Are You?,” seasons two and three of “Zig & Sharko,” “If I Were an Animal,” “Paprika” and “Oggy and the Cockroaches – The Movie.”

“As we continue to strengthen our Southern European footprint, these new deals provide a significant boost to our existing presence in the region,” says Morgann Favennec, external vice president, distribution, Xilam Animation. “We look forward to bringing audiences of all demographics – from preschoolers, through to older kids and family audiences – this new wave of titles which are brimming with all the characteristics Xilam content is known and loved for – engaging storylines, fantastic characters, plenty of humor and lots of heart.”
