Paris-based producer and distributor GO-N Productions has wrapped up a new broadcast deal for its pre-school show Simon with Spanish public broadcaster RTVE’s Clan.

Based on the best-selling series of books by Stephanie Blake and published over 20 countries, the TV series is produced by GO-N Productions with France Télévisions and follows Simon the rabbit who is said to exude all the vitality of childhood. He’s at an age when little rabbits — and indeed little children — are starting to come into their own – challenging relationships with parents, embarking upon school life, learning about the world in general.

The 52 x 5’ series is set to air in 2019 but with France Télévisions premiering the new episodes for Christmas 2018 in France.

GO-N has appointed El Ocho Licencias y Promociones as the licensing agent of the property in Spain and Portugal. This follows the raft of sales previously announced by GO-N with Netflix, NHK (Japan), Disney Junior Latin America and South East Asia, Channel 5 Milkshake! (UK), NRK (Norway), RUV (Iceland), RTS (Switzerland), HOP (Israel), ERR (Estonia), Jetsen Huashi Wangju Kids (China), TV5 Worldwide.
