Animated series “Tina & Tony” was premiered at the largest Chinese video hosting service YouKu on November, 23. 13 new episodes will be added for viewing each week on Fridays. “Tina & Tony” is a co-production of Riki Group and Central Television, JSC, produced at Petersburg Animation Studio.
Diana Yurinova, VP, International business development and distribution, Riki Group, comments: “Several animated brands produced by our company have reached a significant recognition rate in China. Because of such a success both parties, Russian and Chinese, are interested in bringing new Riki IP’s to the local market. “Tina & Tony” starts at the very right time, just several months before the Chinese New Year, which is a high season. First 13 episodes have been viewed 12 million times during the first day, so this is a record number for a Russian animated series in China. We are aiming at 300 million views within the next six months at YouKu.”
