Unterföhring (euro adhoc) - Munich/London, 9 April 2009 - TV-Loonland is pleased to announce the closing  of a multitude of sales with broadcasters worldwide for its animated  series  LEON. Following the shows recent acquisition by German kids  broadcaster  SUPER  RTL, CBBC in the UK and ABC in Australia, yet more high  profile   broadcasters  have picked up the series co-produced by Studio Hari, TV-Loonland and France 3.

Within Europe, the 52 x 3 Minutes show has been licensed  to  Disney Spain  for its  DTT  (Digital Terrestrial Television) channel.   Further  Free  TV  deals were  secured  with    Scandinavian broadcasters  TV4  Sweden,  DRTV  Denmark, MTV3  Finland  and    the   Icelandic Broadcasting Corporation  RUV  alongside TV3  Catalunya   and  Novi  Mediji  for Croatia. Chellozone Media (formerly MINIMAX) has picked up  the  Pay  TV  rights across Central European territories  including  the  Czech  Republic,  Slovakia, Romania and the former Yugoslavia.

In addition LEON will be trekking Down Under and into Asia  with  a   home  video deal signed with ABC Australia and Global TV Indonesia acquiring the TV rights.

Justine Bannister, Head of Distribution is delighted to add that: "We couldn´t be happier with the line-up of major broadcasters already signed up for LEON. It´s a fantastic testimonial for the universal appeal of the show and we expect more broadcasters to recognize this outstandingly animated and highly entertaining series as a "must-see" for their audiences and a "must-have" in their respective programming grids. Forgive the pun, but LEON is destined to be a roaring success worldwide in no time at all"

LEON is an hysterically-funny portrayal of one of life's unluckiest lions. Equipped with a true hunter instinct LEON plots tirelessly to track everything that moves! Each episode brings a new encounter - be it with a dippy springbok, hysterical hyenas or even a love struck hippo...But in LEON's world the prey becomes predator and the chase always spirals out of control, leaving the poor lion often hungry.

The show is currently in production and set for full delivery by Christmas 2009.
