Lockie Leonard airs on Germany’s KiKA Channel
Much-loved Australian children’s series Lockie Leonard is now on air in Germany!
With the premiere held on July 11, Lockie Leonard is now slotted in to Germany’s free-to-air children’s TV scheduling: 5 nights a week at 8:10PM exclusively on Germany’s top rating children’s channel, KiKA.
The award winning Australian live-action children’s comedy/drama series follows teen surfer, Lockie, as he navigates his way through young love, his caring but definitely odd family, his attempts to reach for the stars and the intense experiences of being a teenager.
The program was acquired for the Der Kinderkanal channel in early November of last year. The series underwent dubbing into the German Language in Berlin before screening commenced.
Australian Children’s Television Foundation CEO, Jenny Buckland says the ACTF is excited to see Lockie travelling all the way to Germany’s screens.
“We’re thrilled that Lockie Leonard has found a home on KiKA and we can’t wait to see how German audiences respond to this warm and funny show which brings real boys and all their lovable foibles to life,” she said.
Lockie Leonard is produced by Goalpost Pictures and based on the much-loved Tim Winton novels. The story of Lockie Leonard is set against the backdrop of the spectacular surfing coast of Western Australia.
