South Africa’s Very first animated Series ‘Supa Strikas’ is now aired in France TV. It was purchased and has been launched earlier this month on Disney France.
The animation has been rated as the number 1 kids series in South Africa and on Israel’s Zoom channel; and this year it holds the number 2 position on Disney Italy.
The France feed, which includes Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg, joins the 130-strong territories where the series has aired over the last three years. It airs on Disney across Africa, the Middle East, Greece, Italy, Turkey, Serbia and South East Asia. It will begin airing on Disney across Latin America in May 2014. It airs on Nickelodeon in India and on various free-to-air channels in Israel, Poland, Romania and across Latin America
Supa Strikas is based on the popular comic of the same name, which has 600,000 copies published monthly in You, Drum and Huisgenoot. The comic is sponsored by KFC. Strika Entertainment producer Richard Morgan-Grenville adds, “It’s fantastic that this story with South African roots continues to reach a wider and more diverse audience.”
