LazyTown stands stronger than ever. The company's relatives are big-hearted and seem to have every reason to be optimistic about the business in the coming years. "We have just become part of the Turner group, which in turn is part of Time Warner. Those agreements were finalized late 2011, and the purpose, among other things, to bring on board an owner who has the right distribution channels," say...
The German TV channel Super RTL has decided to broadcast the TV show about the residents of LazyTown. The television station is the fourth to sign a contract with the company LazyTown Entertainment.
Ágúst Freyr Ingason, deputy director of LazyTown, says that Super RTL has the largest audience of children in Germany. In addition to broadcasting the episodes, the TV station will be involved in product development. The program is scheduled to be shown next autumn 2005, where the children’s material will be translated into German.
Screenings of LazyTown began on the American television station Nickelodeon on August 16. Agreements have also been reached with the National Television and the Canadian television station YTV. Furthermore, the show will be aired on December 6: “They wanted to hurry up broadcasting the episodes, as they can do that since they use their English version.”
Ágúst says that they are working on the production of 32 episodes out of 34 that will be in the first series. No decisions have been made about further production of the shows at this stage, but they have received more views than expected.
