Sixth season of Totally Spies! has been picked up by TF1 and Disney in France, and Nickelodeon in German-speaking Europe, Benelux, CE Europe, Nordic territories, CIS, SE Asia and Africa. The show will also incorporate a four-month promotional event at the Palace of Versailles in 2013. Storylines are based on modern social and current worldwide events (think Royal Wedding, popular TV dance competitions, social network schemes) - this will contribute to the show’s updated appeal.
David Michel talks about S6 promotional events:
“The Versailles event is going to be very exiting as we plan to produce two episodes that are set in the castle, a special movie, and a live treasure hunt set in the garden. There will be a dedicated Versailles app, through which kids can get clues and show clips which will direct them to certain parts of the castle. The event will also include big promotional activities and sweepstakes around the world. I guess you can say that Marathon’s priority right now is doing things a bit differently than before. It’s not about just producing cartoons anymore!”
