French production and distribution company, Prime Entertainment Group, has closed a new deal with RTS in Switzerland for the hit animated series Runes (26 x 22’).
RTS is a major French speaking public service. Via its two TV channels RTS1 and RTS2, the network broadcasts a variety of high profile content: news bulletins, interviews, social oriented magazines, programs for kids and young audience, documentaries, reports and investigations, portraits, entertainment programs, sports broadcasts, cultural events or box office films.
This latest deal marks Prime’s new successful partnership with the network, following the previous deal for the award-winning and heart-warming animation special “Looking for Santa” 26’ along with earlier deals on a range of documentaries including the best-selling entertainment documentary “The True Story of Angelina Jolie” 52’.
“Runes” follows the story of 12-year-old William, heir to the throne of Normandy. After his father’s death, William seeks refuge in the village of Baligan, incognito as a peasant boy called Hugo. After stumbling upon a cave, he discovers ancient runes that unleash mysterious magic… and a terrible threat, Loki, God of chaos.
Prime’s animation catalogue has been increasing strongly thanks to their exclusive partnership with 2 major French animation houses: Les Armateurs and Folimage
Prime’s Head of Sales, Alexandra Marguerite, commented on the deal: “We are proud to seal this new deal with such an important player as RTS and particularly glad that the young audience in Switzerland will soon discover the amazing adventures of Hugo and his friends.”
