Independent studio eOne signaled its intention to align TV and film earlier this year and the sales teams have already come together under Stuart Baxter, who has proceeded to bring in Dan Gopal and Joyce Yeung, both of whom have studio experience.
Uniting production and development was a natural next step, Morayniss told Variety. “As we put that sales structure together we asked why stop there,” he said. “There was an ‘a-ha moment’ for us a while ago when we did ‘Sharp Objects.’ We optioned Gillian Flynn’s book to develop as a feature, but after we started developing, it occurred to us that this is a very complicated story and to do it justice it made more sense as a series, so we pivoted very quickly on that.”
It will launch on TV Tokyo on Oct. 10, marking the latest rollout in the show’s push into Asia.
U.K.-listed eOne owns the property after acquiring a controlling stake in its producer Astley Baker Davis in 2015 for £140 million ($188 million). In Asia the show is on Nick Jr. and Viacom’s Voot Svod platform, and in China on CCTV and several streaming platforms including iQIYI, and Youku.
“‘Peppa Pig’ is enjoying tremendous ratings and retail success across Asia, so we’re incredibly excited to be bringing the brand to Japan,” said Andrew Carley, head of global licensing at eOne Family. “Asia is a key focus for our global licensing strategy so we’re keen to explore opportunities in this exciting new market.”

The plan’s presentation was made by Philippe Alessandri, president of trade body Animation Europe, Cartoon Forum president Christian Davin and Tom Van Waveren, chairman of the Netherlands’ Animation Producers Assn.
It comes as Europe’s animation sector, viewed from the broadest of timelines, has certainly registered growth. 76 animated features were produced in Europe over 1984-1998, 361 over 1999-2013. European toon movies sold 20 million admissions during the first period, 220 million during the second.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About the Show “Peppa Pig”
Mister Skinny Legs has climbed up the TV spout again down under, and Australians are pig-sick of it...
Ah, Mister Skinny Legs.

The friendly spider who first appeared in a 2004 episode of Peppa Pig may seem harmless enough to us, but Daddy Pig's advice to his eldest child about benign arachnids during the tale doesn't play well over in Australia.
"Spiders can't hurt you," he reassures Peppa, but it turns out that parents down under don't exactly want their kids picking up spiders, tucking them into their beds or offering them a cup of tea, because the country is jam-packed full of venomous and creepy beasts, some the size of a flipping dinner plate.
The episode was yanked from public broadcast in Australia by ABC back in 2012 for sending an "inappropriate" message, but Mister Skinny Legs managed
A controversial episode of Peppa Pig has been pulled off the air in Australia for a second time, after complaints it told children to pick up and play with dangerous spiders.
Mister Skinny Legs, a 2004 episode of the popular children’s show, was removed from online publication by the national public broadcaster, the ABC, in 2012 for sending the “inappropriate” message that spiders were friendly and not to be feared.

Paw Patrol, Peppa Pig, and the rise of the children's films that aren't really films at the cinema...
There’s a growing trend in UK multiplexes at the moment to show films that aren’t really films, with an intent of giving younger children an entry level way of getting into going to the cinema.
I’m a bit divided on this. On the one hand, I think a delightful film of economical length such as Shaun The Sheep: The Movie deserves that audience. Conversely, there is some logic to the bundling together of a few episodes to satiate short attention spans too. If the ticket price is dropped too, then it feels like we’re meeting somewhere close to half way.
This past weekend, then, I took my youngest to see Paw Patrol: Mission Big Screen. Liked many parents of under fives, I’m more than
At the half-way point of the 2017 ratings year, the Seven, Nine and Ten networks all have something to crow about, and Australian-made dramas and reality shows continue to dominate.
Seven.s primary channel has won the prime-time ratings battle for 24 consecutive weeks, ranks at .No. 1 in total viewers and in the 16-39, 18-49s and 25-54 demographics, and has the year's top show, My Kitchen Rules.
Nine.s boast is that it is the only commercial network to grow its 6 pm-midnight share across total people and all demos for weeks 7 to 26, excluding Easter, while Seven and Ten have lost shares on those metrics.
Despite its corporate problems, Ten says it delivered three of the top seven Australian reality shows among 25 to 54s, the top three game/quiz shows and the top four Us drama series.

Let’s start the day with a heart-warming story about an immigrant who contributed greatly to the happiness of those who took him in. Paddington 2 is coming, and director Paul King’s second blend of Movie-London live action and the genuinely impressive CG bear appears to be just as lovable and enticing as the first.
Two new cast members join the gang, namely Hugh Grant and Brendan Gleeson who will be appearing along with Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, with Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington. Here are the studio-approved descriptions of the new players in this tale of Peruvian immigrance.

Peppa Pig producer-distributor Entertainment One (eOne) is to merge its film and television divisions into a single studio operation within the next 12 months (reports Broadcast).
In its full-year results, the business revealed that the company was “evolving to underpin future growth” with an integrated studio model.
An eOne spokesman told Broadcast that a merged studio will allow the company to “service both parts of [its] film and TV business more efficiently”.
“It makes it easier for us to sell content. Once you get through the film cinema window, you’re actually selling to the same people across film and TV,” he said.
“Because buyers have become much more global, we are moving content around the group on a more global basis, so it makes sense to restructure and reshape the business.”
The merger, which is expected to take place within the next year, is also designed
