Rainbow has announced plans to bring two of its hit shows to Nickelodeon Greece, strengthening its relationship with the broadcaster.
Hit live-action show Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends and the animated hit World of Winx are both on their way to the network, with the former airing from September 4th, weekdays at10pm, after an extensive promotional campaign. World of Winx, a new series inspired by the globally successful Winx Club, will also air from September.
Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends is a live-action dramedy that follows the adventures of Maggie and Bianca – two very different girls who meet at the prestigious Milan Fashion Academy. Nickelodeon Greece joins stations in many other territories, including Italy’s free-to-air channel Rai Gulp, Gulli in France, TV Cultura in Brazil, Karousel in Russia and Disney in Germany, as well as Nickelodeon in Poland and Benelux. Netflix is the worldwide VOD partner for the show.
Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends has already proved a success in other regions, leading to a third season and two 50-minute TV movies as well as a live tour and a number of multi-territory licensing deals.
World of Winx sees the six fairies familiar to millions from Winx Club travel to Earth to act as scouts for talent show WOW! and search the globe for talented kids. But all is not as it seems, as they soon uncover the evil activity of the Talent Thief – a mysterious and despicable villain who is capturing gifted children! The show has been available on Netflix, where it has been released worldwide, since November 2016. It is also currently screening or about to be launched on Rai Gulp in Italy, TV Zoom in Israel and Karusel in Russia and will be broadcast in a number of other countries in the coming months.
Rainbow’s other series Winx Club and Regal Academy have already found success with Nickelodeon Greece, with season one reruns of Regal Academy starting from late August in the weekday 9.30pm slot.
