The Icelandic TV station Sjónvarp has secured the rights to show the Latibær (or LazyTown) episodes. Agreements were reached in the middle of the week at LazyTown’s headquarters in Garðabær, where the episodes are recorded.
Some of the shows have been shown in the United States and have attracted a lot of attention and reportedly reached millions of viewers. The shows are said to be the most popular children’s material available there for the age group from two to eleven years. “The shows are one of the biggest projects that Icelanders have undertaken in this field.
It is planned to start showing the episodes in Iceland from the beginning of the year 2005. The episodes, which were recorded in English, will be broadcast in the Icelandic language” says Sjónvarps announcement. The agreement was signed by Bjarni Guðmundsson, CEO of Sjónvarp and Magnús Scheving, Sportacus himself. The mayor of LazyTown and other good guests were present.
