MILO, the award-winning and successful preschool series co-produced by Fourth Wall and DeAPlaneta Entertainment, continues its relentless international expansion. Last July, MILO arrived to France through children TV channel 6Play, and to Mexico through the free-to-air linear channel TV Azteca. These two launches were followed by the premiere of the series in Canada, which took place in August via public TV channel Télé-Québec. On October, MILO will also arrive to Brazil via Globoplay, the streaming platform of the media group Globo and will also be available in France via Tiji, Gulli’s pay-per-view TV channel for preschool audiences.
These latest releases consolidate even more the international strategy rolled out for the show, which is already broadcasted on 170 countries and has been dubbed into dozens of languages. The first season of MILO is already airing in Spain (Clan TV), UK (Milkshake/Channel 5, Nick Jr.), China (Mango TV), Portugal (RTP and Canal Panda), Poland (MiniMini+ and TV Puls), Italy (RAI YOYO, DeAJunior and TIM Vision), Australia (ABC Kids), Hungary (MTVA, Kid Zone TV), Switzerland (RSI), Netherlands (Kidzone), former Yugoslavia (Talent Show, Kid Zone TV), Middle East (JimJam and Majid), Russia (Ivi), Latin America (via Cartoonito and HBO Max), Finland (YLE), Sweden (SVT), and Czech Republic (Česká televise). MILO is also coming soon to New Zealand (TVNZ) and Israel (Noga). The show will also arrive to USA and Germany, through broadcasters which will be announced very soon.
MILO, whose second season (S1 + S2: 104x11') is finishing its production, and will be delivered in Fall 2024, is an animated series for preschool audiences with a bright, colourful look that brings a very contemporary graphic style to young children. Accompanied by his good friends Lofty and Lark, MILO uses role play to explore the wonderful world of vocations - from doctors and mechanics, to hairdressers, chefs and postal workers, introducing pre-schoolers to a variety of professions in a positive, fun way. The series’ underlying message is that all jobs are INCREDIBLE. The quality of the animation and relevance of its message helped MILO win the 2022 Best Children's series at the prestigious British Animation Awards, and Bronze at the New York Festivals TV & Film Awards.

The production was supported by the British Government's Youth Content Fund, which is managed by the BFI and supports the creation of distinctive and quality content for young audiences.
