Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) has entered into a new kids’ content partnership with the Nordic film studio SF Studios.
The series and films to be added include popular kids formats such as ‘Shaun the Sheep’ [in pic], ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’, ‘Fireman Sam’, ‘Robin Hood – Mischief in Sherwood’ and ‘Monchhichi’. All content will be available in local language dubs to ensure accessibility for younger viewers across the Nordic region.
Viaplay is already home to more than 1,200 episodes of kids content from SF Studios, and the new deal will increase this number to 1,800 episodes.
The agreement with SF Studios complements NENT Group’s long-term kids content partnerships with NBCUniversal, Nickelodeon and Turner.
NENT Group is also rapidly increasing its original kids content slate, which includes ‘Saga’s Stories’, ‘Fixi in Playland’, ‘Mia’s Magic Playground’, ‘Peppy Pals’ and ‘The Great Escape’.
Co-produced by SF Studios, ‘Saga’s Stories’ is a 10-part animated series based on the bestselling books by Swedish author Josefine Sundström for children aged 3 to 6, and was nominated for Children’s Programme of the Year at Sweden’s Kristallen awards in August 2019. The show was recently renewed for a second season, which will premiere exclusively on Viaplay in spring 2020.
Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the Nordic region’s leading streaming company, has agreed a new kids content partnership with Nordic film studio SF Studios. As a result, more than 500 additional episodes of high-quality Nordic and international kids series from SF Studios, as well as selected films, will be added to NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service during 2020.
