Brand & Deliver and Lizenzwerft will help grow both series across the U.K. and Europe ahead of their second seasons.
The Coolabi Group has tapped two new agents–Brand & Deliver and Lizenzwerft–to represent “Clangers” and “Poppy Cat” for licensing and brand partnerships across the U.K. and Europe.
First, Brand & Deliver will work to secure U.K. brand partners to help promote “Clangers” as it heads into its second season.
“The ‘Clangers’ is a magical show and we’re delighted to have a new series in production,” says Anya Hollis, head, marketing, Coolabi Group. “We look forward to building brand partnerships that will increase awareness of the show among existing fans and reach out to new audiences.”
Meanwhile, Lizenzwerft has signed on as the licensing agent for “Poppy Cat” (“Poppy Katz”) in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland, and will develop a host of products through its network of manufacturers and retail. The first season of “Poppy Cat” debuted on KiKA in Germany in May 2015. The second season of the series is slated to launch on the network this April.
“We have observed ‘Poppy Katz’ over the last 6 months on KiKA and realized how much kids and parents love Lara, Poppy, Uhu, Zuzu, Alma and Mo. The artwork and the story are unique and simply wonderful for young children,” says Peter Bichler, managing director, Lizenzwerft. “We are very proud to have this great brand on board and are looking forward to work closely with Coolabi to make ‘Poppy Katz’ the best preschool licensing brand in our markets.”
