BabyRiki to premier in the UK

29.08.2018

FUN Union, a Hong Kong-based company, an international distributor of Riki Group’s popular animation brands Kikoriki, BabyRiki and PINCODE,  has signed an exclusive deal with broadcaster ITV, the most popular commercial television network in the UK, for pre-school animation series BabyRiki. BabyRiki is a 5-min animated show, combining 3D CGI and live video, where preschoolers are entertained, and learn through play. Each episode introduces an age-appropriate learning concept, illustrated with a song, helping the young child absorb and process through kinaesthetic learning. Seasons 1 and 2 (total of 104 episodes), will form part of ITVBe’s newly created weekday morning zone and will premiere on 3 September 2018.

“We are thrilled to be bringing BabyRiki to preschoolers in the UK. It is a fun and visually outstanding show, and an excellent addition to our growing slate of new pre-school content on littleBe,” said Darren Nartey, ITV’s Programme Acquisitions Executive.

LittleBe is a brand new dedicated pre-school block on ITVBe targeting children aged 2-4 in the UK during key broadcast hours (09:00-12:00).
