France Télévisions to play Hardball

Hardball has been picked up around the world

Pubcaster France Télévisions has picked up an Australian live-action comedy series from Paris-based APC Studios’ children’s division APC Kids.

Distributed by the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF) and APC Kids, Hardball (13×24’) is produced by Northern Pictures in association with Screen Australia, Create NSW and the ACTF.

The show centres on a kid who moves from New Zealand to Western Sydney and finds himself in the thick of the ultra-competitive schoolyard game of handball.

Hardball premiered in Australia on ABC ME last year and has also been sold to broadcasters in Norway, Ireland, Canada, Hong Kong, Portugal and Slovenia, with details of those deals to be announced shortly.
