OSCAR’S OASIS FINDS HOME IN ITALY

OSCAR’S OASIS FINDS HOME IN ITALY
Thursday, September 22, 2016

LONDON – Leading kids entertainment specialist CAKE has announced a deal with Discovery in Italy for the multi award-winning Oscar’s Oasis, produced by leading French CGI animation studio TeamTO, Tuba Entertainment in Korea and CAKE and commissioned by TF1 France.

The deal, finalised by CAKE’s Senior Sales Manager Bianca Rodriguez, will see Discovery Italy broadcasting the series this November on its free-to-air channel K2.

Oscar’s Oasis (78 x 7’) is a non-verbal CGI animated series full of action packed adventures starring Oscar, a lonely lizard who fights through an unforgiving desert terrain perpetually crossing paths with a seemingly endless horde of enemies. It often appears that Oscar can’t catch a break, despite all his best efforts to survive, to find water and above all, to avoid dying from boredom!

Aimed at 6-11 year olds, Oscar’s Oasis is full of visual charm and memorable characters winning the best animated series at the 20th edition of the International Animation Festival of Brazil, Anima Mundi and the "Prix du public" award for best series at the "Voix d'étoiles" festival (France). The series was also selected at Annecy and Cartoons on the Bay.

Oscar’s Oasis has been a huge hit with international audiences, airing on key channels all around the world including Netflix US, Cartoon Network Latin America, Disney Asia, Australia and Benelux, Canal Once in Mexico, MBC Middle East and in Scandinavia on SVT in Sweden and MTV3 in Finland. 

Ed Galton, CCO and Managing Director at CAKE said, “K2 is a great partner for Oscar’s Oasis and we are looking forward to Italian audiences enjoying Oscar and his antics”.
