New York, NY (February 8, 2012)—Distribution360 today announced that it has licensed marblemedia’s Splatalot (26 x 30’) to Disney XD. The deal is for the UK version of the show, which is hosted by popular comic duo Dick and Dom. The series is set to air this spring in over 100 countries in Eastern and Central Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Splatalot is a hilarious medieval-themed physical game show geared to the 8-12 year-old audience. The series features a larger-than-life extreme obstacle course with more splats and spills than ever imaginable. Each episode features a different group of 12 thrill-seeking teen contestants, dubbed Attackers, competing in three hilarious rounds: Cross the Moat, Escape the Stockade and Capture the Crown. The Defenders of Splatalot, an international squad of nine costumed gladiators, do their best to protect the castle from the Attackers—leaving only one in each episode to be crowned King or Queen of Splatalot.
“Splatalot launched last year in Canada, the UK and Australia to an overwhelming response from the tween audience. Everyone loves the show’s physical humour and great characters, and this is what Splatalot is all about,” says Matt Hornburg, Managing Partner, Distribution360. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Disney XD to continue sharing this hilarious series with new audiences internationally.”
The Distribution360 team is attending Kidscreen in New York City this week.
