10 Years of Striker

Licensing agency plans to celebrate its anniversary with a host of new products for properties such as "Five Nights at Freddy's," "We Happy Few" and more.

Licensing agency Striker Entertainment is celebrating 10 years, marking a decade of representing some of the most diverse and interesting up-and-coming and established brands.

"Striker's 10th anniversary is less about celebrating our individual accomplishments as a company, but rather, celebrating the collective accomplishments and collaborations between our clients, our licensee and retail partners, and the organization that we have built to help facilitate multi-faceted consumer products programs that service the people who really matter in the overall equation... the fans," says Russell Binder, partner, Striker Entertainment.

Striker recently signed on to build a consumer product programs for Laika, a producer of CG, stop-motion and cel animated films. Striker has been tapped to represent Laika's library of films including

Kubo and the Two Strings

,

Coraline

,

Paranorman

and

The Boxtrolls

, as well as an as-yet titled upcoming animated feature film.

Striker's television roster includes "The

Tick," an upcoming live-action television series from Sony Television based on the classic comic book character; "Ultimate Beastmaster," the new Netflix competition show; "Preacher," based on the DC/Vertigo comic book series, which begins its second season on AMC in June; AMC's "The Walking Dead," the critically acclaimed, highly rated television series that has been nominated for three LIMA International Licensing awards, including Best Live-Action Entertainment Property of the Year; "Fear the Walking Dead," the companion show; "Into the Badlands," the martial arts series; "Mr. Pickles," the irreverent Adult Swim animated comedy; and several other upcoming shows to be announced at this month's Licensing Expo.

Also on Striker's radar is "Five Nights at Freddy's," a horror video game franchise that the agency continues to expand a footprint for around the world. Other gaming franchises represented by Striker–digital, console and traditional–include "We Happy Few" from Compulsion Games, card game "Exploding Kittens," mobile app "Kitty Cones," art brand It's Happy Bunny and more.

"If someone would have said to us early on that I could make a living off of vampires, robots, zombies, Kaijus, superheroes, teddy bears and Angry Birds, Striker would be 25-years-old," says Binder. "The truth is that we have not been coming to 'work' for the last 10 years, and if we have our way, we will be saying the same thing at our 20th anniversary."
