MUMBAI: Xilam, the award-winning animation production company, today announced that Turner Asia Pacific, one of its key broadcast partners, has acquired two additional seasons for its ratings-winner Oggy and the Cockroaches. The series in 4K will be delivered from 2017 onwards and available across Turner’s channels including Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Pogo.

Turner’s chief content officer of its kids’ networks in Asia Pacific Mark Eyers said: “We all know that cockroaches have some serious survival skills, and there’s just something about Oggy and his mischievous friends that continues to connect with kids. By extending the relationship with Xilam, Turner has kept hold of a proven hit to further boost its leadership position in the region.”

Xilam Animation CEO and founder Marc du Pontavice added, "Oggy’s worldwide success continues to hit new highs, and we are thrilled to pursue the partnership with Turner and Cartoon Network that helped build and expand Oggy as a phenomenon throughout Asia.”

In Season 5 (78 x 7’), the battle goes on between Oggy and the roaches as they travel back in time through the ages and meet icons such as Caesar, Leonardo da Vinci and the Cyclops, as well as rocketing forward into the year 3000. Seasons 6 and 7 (156 x 7’) will comprise a mix of brand new episodes along with full remakes of classic stories from seasons 1 and 2 all produced in 4K. After almost 20 years of success, this spectacular addition of 234 new episodes, all in 4K, will project the brand in the next 15 years, as it will keep entertaining the kids and their parents with them.
