So much has Mia and me been liked that it has attracted the eyes of broadcasters from all around the world.
Like for instance, Germany’s m4e has signed a number of global broadcast deals for this girl-skewing series.
The show was acquired by m4e last June, when the company took a 45% stake in the international rights (excluding Italy) to the property.
Hahn Film purchased the remaining 5% of Rainbow’s original 50% stake. Studio 100 then purchased a majority stake in m4e in January.
The series has also been picked up in the Nordic territories like Benelux, Estonia, Portugal, France, French-speaking Africa, Australia and Thailand.
In fact, it is Nickelodeon that has taken season three to the Nordic territories for its pay-TV rights operations as well as taking free-TV and pay-TV rights for Benelux.
On the other hand, Estonian Public Broadcasting ERR has picked up free-TV rights for its channel ETV2. The show’s pay-TV rights were picked up in Portugal by Canal Panda owner Dreamia while Turner has acquired pay-TV rights in France, Belgium, Luxemburg, Monaco, Switzerland and French-speaking Africa.
Thailand’s TIGA Co. acquired pay-TV rights, and Australia’s Channel 11 snapped up free-TV rights for all three seasons.
In South America, Brazil’s Globosat has renewed its pay-TV rights for season one.
Season three has already premiered in Germany on KiKA.
On the toy front, Simba Toys has picked up the toy license for Mia and me in February while Playthings will be launching in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2018 before rolling out globally.
The 78 x 23-minute show created by Gerhard Hahn is produced by Hahn & m4e Productions, along with Rainbow and ZDF.
