Lola & Virginia is heading to Hulu.
The US streaming service has struck a deal with distributor Viva Pictures Distribution to acquire the animated comedy, which hails from Spanish production and distribution company Imira Entertainment, TVWise has learned.
Lola & Virginia tells the story of 12 year old Lola, who finds herself taking care of her snotty siblings and putting up with her crazy group of friends. She considers herself the local princess, until Virginia, a stuck up kid who has it all, barges into her life. Their relationship soon involves alliances, strategies and betrayal. In the end, Lola is the good girl…but she’s not a saint either.
The animated sitcom, which is now available to stream on Hulu as a 52 episode series, is based on an original concept by Imira Entertainment’s Myriam Ballesteros & Sergi Reitg and is a co-production between Imira Entertainment, Millimages, France 3, Televisió de Catalunya and ETB.
“Our original programming has global appeal, reinforced by deals with premium entertainment platforms like Hulu”, said Sergi Reitg, CEO of Imira Entertainment. “Lola & Virginia is fun, genuine and engaging, and we are excited to see it continuing to reach new fans.”
This marks the latest digital deal and follows on from a recent deal which made the series available on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the United States and on Telefonica’s Movistar España VOD platforms & Samsung Smart TVs in Spain. Lola & Virginia has been sold to more than 100 territories and translated into 27 different languages.
