APC Kids, the children’s entertainment division of co-production and distribution company APC Studios, has secured a duo of deals in Italy for CTC Media’s preschool animation series “Kid-E-Cats.”

“‘Kid-E-Cats’ continues to gain momentum and charm broadcasters and audiences alike, now totaling more than 30 free-to-air broadcaster partners on top of our presence on Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon networks,” says Lionel Marty, managing director, APC Kids. “We’re heartened to be continuing to secure deals for our shows and leveraging our strong international partnerships.”

Following the success of the first two seasons, Cartoonito has signed a new free-to-air deal for “Kid-E-Cats” season three, while Koch Films has taken home video rights to seasons one and two.

“Kid-E-Cats” is owned and managed by CTC Media and produced by Studio Metrafilms. It’s one of the leading preschool series in Russia. The third season is completed, and seasons one and two are currently available on Nick Jr. internationally in more than 170 territories following a deal signed between APC Kids and Nickelodeon International in 2017.

“It’s truly amazing that our brand is growing so rapidly around the world,” says Ksenia Gordienko, director, animation department, CTC Media. “Each international sale of ‘Kid-E-Cats’ is a big step for the franchise’s success. We’re on our way to build the strong international brand with the help of our partners at APC Kids.”
