Italian preschool channel Cartoonito has acquired animated series MeteoHeroes from European production company and distributor Mondo TV.
MeteoHeroes follows the adventures of six children with superpowers who protect the planet from extreme weather, events and pollution.
It is a coproduction from Mondo TV and Italian weather forecasting group Meteo Expert Center.
The series will premiere with a special four-episode sneak preview in April on Boing-owned Cartoonito, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
The premiere will be accompanied by a major media campaign during which the stars of MeteoHeroes will play their roles as ambassadors in a fight to protect the planet.
The full series will launch in June, when the four opening episodes will appear again, followed by 14 new episodes.
