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...
LazyTown Entertainment and the company’s partner in Europe, Marathon, have reached an agreement with the television station France3 to show LazyTown on TV in France. Ágúst Freyr Ingason, spokesperson for LazyTown, says that the company is very pleased to have sold the show to France. “We had already sold to Germany, which is the largest country in continental Europe, and France is next.
This means a lot to us and makes it easier for us to sell the show to other European countries,” he says. Ágúst says that the deal is big. “It’s a milestone for us to get on French television, because at the same time we make content that will be shown in other French-speaking countries. For example, this deal means we can sell the content to French-speaking Canada, where we’ve made a deal with YTV in that country. There are also unmentioned French-speaking countries in Europe, such as Belgium,” says Ágúst. He says the deal with France3 is very good, “actually better than we expected”.
This autumn LazyTown will be broadcasted in Iceland. “The dubbing has begone and it’s going very well. We are very excited about being able to show the episodes in Iceland,” says Ágúst Freyr Ingason.
