Zodiak Kids has secured pre-sales in Thailand and Italy for Get Blake! – the new children's comedy cartoon series from its production arm Marathon Media.

GET BLAKEJKN Global has acquired the series for its JKN and Bright Channels in Thailand, while De Agostini Editore will air it on its Italian children's channel Super!, following the deal with Zodiak Kids.

Get Blake! has been developed in partnership with Nickelodeon and Gulli, and features 13-year-old Blake Myers and his best friend Mitch, who constantly find themselves under siege by three alien squirrels.

The animated series, which comprises 52 x 11' episodes, will premiere in the UK on Nickelodeon's Nick Toons on 2 March 2015, followed by Nickelodeon US in April, and Gulli in the autumn.

The show is directed by Daniel Klein, with executive producer Eryk Casemiro, while Derek Dressler (Kick Buttowski, Johnny Test, Breadwinners and Annoying Orange) supervised the writing.
