RTVE takes walk down 'Sesame Street'

Popular children's series returning to the network

CANNES -- Bert and Ernie are headed to Spain in the wake of RTVE's distribution deal for "Sesame Street," the company said Tuesday.

The deal for "Sesame Street," aka "Barrio Sesamo," marks a return to the network for the popular children's series, which debuted in the territory 30 years ago on the state-owned public network.

The Spanish version of "Play With Me Sesame" will launch in January on RTVE's LA 2 daily and air on digital terrestrial channel Clan TV.
