Disney India has acquired the Canadian animated comedy series 'Freaktown' from Portfolio Entertainment. Broadcasters in the UK and Denmark have also acquired the rights for the same movie.

Sony Pictures Television-owned UK channel Kix, Disney in India, and DR Ultra in Denmark will air the '26×30′ series, which premiered on Teletoon in Canada in June. Based on a concept from Peter Ricq and Philippe Ivanusic, the creators of YTV series The League of Super Evil, 'Freaktown' is aimed at six- to-11-year-olds and follows a bunch of friendly freaks fighting against the forces of cuteness.

The deals come after broadcasters including Cartoon Network, The Walt Disney Company and ABC in Australia acquired rights to the show last year.

The Walt Disney Company started its India operations in 2004 with its head office located in Mumbai and has significantly expanded its footprint in the country. Today, it is one of the leading film studios and film distributors in India; one of the largest TV networks with eight popular channels targeting kids, youth and families; a leading player in the digital, interactive and games segment and the largest licensor in the consumer products space.
