Liberty Farm (Blackie and Company) follows the colourful antics of the resident livestock, who talk, sing, dance and play, unbeknownst to their human handlers. The protagonist, Blackie, is a sheep with ambition – unorthodox and adventurous, who in the film Blackie & Kanuto, which inspired the television series spin-off, resolves to get herself to space. In the series’ 26 episodes Blackie is joined by the lively livestock of Liberty Farm who are full of fun and quirks. Kanuto, the resident sheepdog, Marvi, the flightless duck, Theodora, the musical cow, Pepe, the hapless horse, Winston, Grumbo, and Karl, are all part of the weird and wonderful world of Liberty Farm.
Commenting on the deal, Sergi Reitg, CEO of Imira Entertainment says: “We are delighted to be taking on Baleuko’s original and quirky comedy-adventure project Liberty Farm (Blackie & Company). Imira Entertainment has a library of shows with fresh, vibrant characters and we are pleased to be taking another great property to new and broader audiences.”
Idurre Cajaraville, Head of Production at Baleuko adds: “This deal with Imira Entertainment is a really important step for Baleuko in the production of Liberty Farm (Blackie & Company). After we entered the international market with films like The Wish Fish and Blackie and Kanuto, we were thrilled to acquire the co-production support of TVE which has been fundamental to the series, as well as strong distribution partners like Imira Entertainment”.
