Mondo TV Iberoamérica, a division of Mondo TV, one of the largest European producers and distributors of animated content, has announced the sale to Yes KidZ, an Israeli television channel for children, of series two of the tween and teen comedy drama Heidi Bienvenida.
Called Heidi Bienvenida al Show, the new series, which continues the adventures of the happy, carefree girl who leaves her beloved mountain home to live in the big city, will broadcast on Yes KidZ from September 2019. The license agreement will last for three years.
Yes KidZ, which broadcast on yes, Israel’s sole direct broadcast satellite television provider, was one of the first broadcasters outside Latin America to show series one of Heidi Bienvenida. Series one – Heidi Bienvenida a Casa– launched in Israel in September 2017 and was a big hit with its target tween and teen audience, which is expected to be equally enthusiastic about the new series.
The second season builds on the popular characters of the first, adding a new and very unconventional family, new friendships and new themes, including Heidi’s talent for creating perfumes, her efforts to help her friend Coco overcome her fear of singing, a new hairdresser, some very special dolls, and an amazing motorbike shop. There are, of course, new and even more extraordinary hats from Heidi, as well as a lot more of the music that, alongside the storylines and characters, underpins the appeal of the show.
