Sky One head of acquisitions Penny Harris has bought a 13 x 30-minute run of producer and distributor Nelvana's animated series, Rescue Heroes, writes Tara Conlan. It is Nelvana's first sale to Sky One and was handled by Nelvana managing director Cathy Laughton. Rescue Heroes, which features people being saved from natural disasters, will air on Saturday mornings later this year. Laughton has also sold a 39 x 30-minute run of another children's animation, Ned's Newt, to Cartoon Network. The animation is a co-production with German producer TMO.
