Milo Heads to to Germany, Austria and Switzerland
DeAPlaneta Entertainment and SUPER RTL, a German free-to-air television network have signed a deal which includes two of main DeAPlaneta Entertainment’s IP’s: Milo and Magic Lilly. Milo, the award-winning and successful preschool series co-produced by Fourth Wall (UK) and DeAPlaneta Entertainment, which is already broadcasted on 170 countries and has been dubbed into more than 20 languages, will arrive to Germany, Austria and Switzerland during the first months of 2024 thanks to this deal. Magic Lilly, an upcoming animated comedy-fantasy-adventure series based on the successful book series Hexe Lilli and the animated series Lilly, the Witch, will also be broadcasted on SUPER RTL.
Lars Wagner, Director of GSA and CEE territories for DeAPlaneta Kids & Family, has declared: “Collaborating with SUPER RTL, the Number 1 Kids Channel in Germany, for the broadcast of Milo and Magic Lilly marks a pivotal moment for DeAPlaneta Entertainment in the German-speaking territories. The upcoming debut of Milo across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in early 2024, and the introduction of Magic Lilly, reflects our dedication to delivering exceptional content to young audiences and families.”
Milo, whose second season (S1 + S2: 104×11′) is finishing its production, and will be delivered in Fall 2024, is an animated series for preschool audiences with a bright, colourful look that brings a very contemporary graphic style to young children. Accompanied by his good friends Lofty and Lark, MILO uses role play to explore the wonderful world of vocations – from doctors and mechanics, to hairdressers, chefs and postal workers, introducing pre-schoolers to a variety of professions in a positive, fun way. The series’ underlying message is that all jobs are AMAZING. The quality of the animation and relevance of its message helped MILO win the 2022 Best Children’s series at the prestigious British Animation Awards, and Bronze at the New York Festivals TV & Film Awards
