Zinkia inks deal after exiting administration

PocoyoSpain’s Zinkia Entertainment has scored a VOD deal for its Pocoyo preschool animated series after exiting administration.

The kids IP management-focused company recently began trading in the Alternative Stock Market again after going into administration in early 2014.

It has subsequently done a deal with MoMedia for two seasons of the popular Pocoyo to be distributed on TVOD platforms.

“It’s very important for Zinkia that Pocoyo has a multiplatform presence,” said Zinkia chairman Jose María Castillejo.

The show follows a three-year-old boy and his animal friends and includes a narrator, who speaks directly to the audience and characters.

MoMedia has positioned itself as a partner distributor for kids TV firms looking to further exploit their IP. Pocoyo had already sold to 150 broadcasters around the world, including Nick Jr. in the UK and CITV in the UK.

The company’s investors include venture capital investment firm ESRG and Endemol Shine.
