Dukes of Bröxstônia heads to Germany and Disney XD in the U.S

Children’s animated short-form comedy series Dukes of Bröxstônia has been sold by the ACTF to German home entertainment company Nipponart GmbH.

Nipponart will release all three series on DVD/Blu-Ray in German speaking territories, as well as making the animated shorts available online throughout Europe.

“Nipponart is thrilled to be bringing the Dukes of Bröxstônia to the European home entertainment market. We are sure kids in Europe will love the Dukes irreverent humour and punk attitude, and we look forward to making the show available to them in 2016.” says Christian Viertel, Head of Licensing and Acquisition.

Already a hit in Australia and across Asia, Dukes of Bröxstônia continues its international reach with Series 2 scheduled to premiere on Disney XD in the U.S. later this month.

The Dukes are the hottest band to come out of Bröxstônia in years. In fact they are the only band to come out of Bröxstônia. Ever! The band is composed of teenagers Arj, Barj and Larj. And now thanks to the generosity of the Bröxstônian government, The Dukes are on tour, spreading their uniquely punk thrash sounds to an unsuspecting world!

Dukes of Bröxstônia is produced by Sticky Pictures and created by Stu Connolly and Suren Perera. The series is distributed internationally by the Australian Children’s Television Foundation.
