RTVE and Mondo TV, through its subsidiary Mondo TV Producciones Canarias, announce the participation of Spanish pubcaster in the co-production of the second season of animated series Bat Pat.

Mondo TV Iberoamerica, part of the Italian group Mondo TV, one of the largest European producers and distributors of animated content, has announced the signing of an important co-production contract with Corporación de Radio y Televisión Española (RTVE).

The agreement affirms the participation of Radio Televisión Española (RTVE) as a co-producer for the second season of the 52 x 11’ animated entertainment show for children Bat Pat.

Bat Pat is a 2D animation series, co-produced by the Italian transmedia company Atlantyca Entertainment S.p.A, creator of such hits as Geronimo Stilton, and Mondo TV. Mondo TV subsidiary, Mondo TV Producciones Canarias is responsible for pre-production, while the parent company, Mondo TV S.p.A, is responsible for animation.

Under the terms of the agreement, Mondo TV Producciones Canarias has assigned 9.22% of its IP to RTVE, which will have the exclusive right of reproduction and public communication in the territory of Spain. Atlantyca exclusively owns the exploitation rights for Italy.

Bat Pat follows the spooky and comic adventures of Bat Pat, a talking bat, and his friends the Silver siblings: Martin, Leo and Rebecca. As they solve mysteries, they cross paths with supernatural creatures of the night that stalk them, chase them and screech at them, lurking in every dark corner of their house in Fogville, a small city that seems to be at the centre of all the weirdness in the world.

Comedy, humour and strange adventures: these are the ingredients that made series one of Bat Pat a hit and will continue to entertain the show’s young audience in the much-anticipated second season.

Maria Bonaria Fois, CEO of Mondo TV Iberoamérica, said: “This contract represents an important new stage for our company: our first co-production with RTVE. It underlines once again the growth of our Canary subsidiary and the quality of its work. We are proud to be able to announce this agreement.”
