  • 1. The Little Prince Launch in Latin America / COMMUNICATIONS REPORT Page 1 LAUNCH IN LATIN AMERICA COMMUNICATIONS ACTIVITY REPORT OCTOBER 14, 2011 TO JANUARY 5, 2012 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY On Friday, December 2nd , 2011, Discovery Kids launched in Latin America the award winning animated series EL PRINCIPITO (The Little Prince). The program is a spin off of the famous book by French writer and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and has 52 episodes which show the little prince in different adventures as he journeys through the galaxy from planet to planet. The promotional efforts surrounding the launch of EL PRINCIPITO centered on the coordination of a three-phase PR campaign that included an acquisition announcement on October 14, two international conference calls (October 20 and 26) with Olivier d’Agay, grandnephew of The Little Prince’s author, who also presides the Saint-Exupéry Estate, and Aton Soumache, French cinematographer who is the lead producer of the series. In addition, several press activities took place including: Press screenings in Bogota, Colombia and Santiago, Chile as well as presence in Mexico’s Feria Internacional del Libro where Discovery Kids had an interactive stand dedicated to the show. The promotion of the series, which was almost entirely driven by public relations, proved to be a major success resulting in extensive and high quality media coverage across the region, but most importantly, record-breaking ratings for its premiere. The program achieved the highest audience ratings in the history of the channel for a premiere in Brazil with a 10.95 rating and placed Discovery Kids in the #1 position among children 4 to 6 and women 25 to 34 years.1 The series premiere also had an exceptional performance in the Mexican market where the show contributed to significant tune-in 1 Source Ibope, Brasil: Universo de Cable – Diciembre 2, 2011. #1 entre P4-11, #1 niños de 4-11, # 1 niñas de 4-11 y # 1 mujeres 25-34.
