Mondo TV Group has confirmed that its popular environmentally-focused children’s series, MeteoHeroes, has been licensed to Amazon Prime Video in Italy.
The first 19 episodes launched on Amazon Prime from 15 January. The remaining episodes will premiere in April and September 2022. The series will complement the exclusive terrestrial window on Cartoonito where MeteoHeroes is currently on air.
The first series has already been sold into over 140 countries and 20 languages and has been among the biggest hit shows on Cartoonito in Italy since its launch in 2020.
The agreement with Amazon, among the world’s leaders in OTT provision, reinforces the property’s digital presence. Amazon’s streaming service launched in Italy in 2016 and has enjoyed strong growth.
This first launch will reinforce the show’s timely focus on such important topics as the fight against pollution, the need to protect bees, separate waste collection and many other good practices to safeguard our planet, all highlighted in the context of an entertaining adventure series.
In addition, a collaboration in December with tech giant Huawei saw the show’s six planet-protecting superheroes become the stars of numerous wallpapers for mobiles and tablets. These are downloadable via the Huawei Themes app all over the world (excluding China).
Matteo Corradi, ceo at Mondo TV, said: “With this major deal, added to numerous overseas sales, and a number of licensing agreements, MeteoHeroes has underlined its international success both as a media phenomenon on multiple platforms and as a popular licensed property.
“We’re expecting even more success for this entertaining, original and highly relevant title throughout 2022.”
