Secret Ranch ready to gallop! Tele Images Productions secures major presale deals in key European territories


Tele Images Productions has inked major presale deals in key European territories for its newest animated series, Secret Ranch, (working title) thus securing the 6M€ budget of the series. In addition to France where the series has been acquired by TF1, Teletoon+ and Equidia – the horse-dedicated cable and satellite channel, the German public channels ARD and KI.KA and Italy's De A Kids have committed to coproduce 26 episodes of 22 minutes.

Preproduction has just started for a delivery to the international market in spring 2013.

Secret Ranch depicts the adventures of four teenagers, two girls and two boys, who share a passion for horse-riding. When one of them, Lena, encounters a wild stallion who has been injured, she decides to adopt him and, with the help of her friends, to create a Ranch in the wild to rescue him and other horses.

The series will be distributed worldwide by the Zodiak Kids sales team. Video rights will be handled by TF1.
