France: TF1 Acquires 'Top Wing' and 'PAW Patrol' Season 5 for Tfou!

Leading French commercial broadcaster TF1 has acquired the broadcast rights to Nickelodeon's brand-new CG-animated preschool series Top Wing for it's Tfou! kids’ programming strand!


Locally titled Top Wing, toutes ailes dehors, the action-packed series follows a team of eager young birds as they work together to help their island community, go on amazing adventures and earn their wings as full-feathered rescue birds. Produced by 9 Story Media Group, the show features storylines that help preschoolers build self-confidence, and includes lessons about perseverance and hard work.

Top Wing follows four best friend rescue birds–Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody–who are training to earn their wings at the Top Wing Academy on Big Swirl Island. With the help of their mentor Speedy, and unique turbo-charged vehicles and high-tech gadgets, the cadets are assigned different missions to sharpen their rescue skills and help those in need while learning valuable lessons along the way.

In Top Wing’s series premiere, “Time to Earn Our Wings,” cadets-in-training Swift, Penny, Rod and Brody gather at Top Wing Academy where they learn to pilot their new vehicles and become the best rescue team Big Swirl Island has ever seen.
