Zodiak Kids announces today it has sold a raft of titles to Amazon India, in a deal amassing over 100 hours.
Amazon India has acquired all four seasons of popular children’s animation Horrid Henry. The show centers on a boy who constantly feels like life just isn’t fair. Of course he’s only a kid, but with a perfect little brother called Peter, a Mum and Dad who’d love him dearly if only he’d stop behaving, well, like a kid, and a moody girl next door who’s on a mission to make Henry’s life miserable, who can blame him?
Henry’s looking at life from the bottom up, and from where he stands it’s him against the rest of the world. So if that means getting out of swimming class by pretending there’s a shark in the pool, organizing an anti-school uniform campaign with his friends or setting up a pet sitting business in his bedroom to supplement his measly allowance, then that’s all part of life as Henry knows it. Horrid Henry is produced by Novel Entertainment Ltd for CiTV.
Speaking on the partnership, Nitesh Kripalani, Director and Country Head, Amazon Prime Video India said, “We are extremely happy to announce our collaboration with Zodiak Kids by bringing immensely popular characters like Horrid Henry to India. This alliance adds further volume to our existing bouquet of great kids’ programming, thus paving the way for us to have the largest exclusive selection of kids’ entertainment in India.”
Amazon India has also picked up animation series’ Extreme Football, Street Football and Sally Bollywood the Bollywood tastic mystery solving show. All series are produced by Zodiak Kids Studios.
The shows are set to launch on Amazon Prime Video in early 2017.
