Ubisoft and Nickelodeon have announced a partnership that will see the insanely funny Rabbids on the small screen near you starting in 2013.
The 26 half hour episodes schedules consists of three seven minute segments will air worldwide excluding France (I don’t know why?). This exclusion seems weird to me as Ubisoft France is involved with the creation of the Rabbids and the production of the television series (along side Ubisoft Motion Pictures).
“Nickelodeon is one of the world’s leading entertainment brands for children and families, and Ubisoft is thrilled to be partnering with Nickelodeon to deliver unique television programming to its viewers,” said Jean-Julien Baronnet, chief executive officer of Ubisoft Motion Pictures. “As the world’s most recognized entertainment brand for children and families, Nickelodeon is the perfect vehicle to share the zany Rabbids characters and their crazy adventures with television audiences around the globe. This partnership represents a major milestone in Ubisoft’s strategy to expand its brands to new media, thereby attracting new audiences to its games.”
