German production and distribution company Studio 100 Media will create, supply and schedule a cobranded channel for the Middle East and North Africa.
The new channel, called beJunior, will be available exclusively to pay-TV subscribers of Qatar-based media group beIN and target children and families.
Based on the concept of Studio 100’s pay-TV channel Junior in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, beJunior will screen programmes from Studio 100’s library of classics as well as modern CGI series such as Maya the Bee (see image), Vic the Viking and Heidi.
Additions to the schedule in the following years include upcoming CGI series The Wild Adventures of Blinky Bill, Nils Holgersson and Arthur and the Minimoys which Studio 100 Media will present at this year’s MIPTV in Cannes.
The channel will launch on April 1, 2016.
