DENNIS AND GNASHER UNLEASHED HEADS TO GERMANY AS SUPER RTL ACQUIRE TV SERIES

Germany’s leading kid’s broadcaster, SUPER RTL will air the all new Beano Studios production of Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed this Autumn. The deal includes VOD rights.

The 52 x 11-minute part-CGI series currently runs on Australia’s ABC Me channel and in the UK on CBBC where it was the top rating show each week of its first three week run in Autumn 2017.

Allison Watkins, EVP, Global Consumer Products & TV Distribution at Beano Studios, commented:

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome SUPER RTL to the bold, funny and adventurous new world of Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed. They are in good company with the two biggest broadcasters in the UK with CBBC and in Australia on ABC ME. Following the successful launch of Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed at Mipcom in 2017 with our distribution partner Jetpack, we look forward to bringing this infectiously brilliant series to more international territories in 2018.”

Dennis & Gnasher Unleashed, the first production from Beano Studios, premiered on CBBC in November 2017, and drew the highest viewing figures across kids’ TV for live linear viewing for the channel in its first week, with 223,000 6-12 year olds tuning in, and a peak audience of 230,000.

The action adventure show is packed full of funny and epic moments for hero Dennis, his canine side kick Gnasher, alongside best friends who are girls Rubi and JJ along with Pieface and his BFF Paul the Potato.

SUPER RTL’s Programme Director, Carsten Göttel, adds: “We are delighted to have Dennis and Gnasher Unleashed! on SUPER RTL in their fresh CGI TV guise and I am sure German kids will enjoy their relatable adventures, special friendship and fun stories.”
