DHX Media has signed broadcast deals with Disney XD channels for two of its series recently commissioned by DHX TV to air originally on its Family CHRGD channel. DHX Media licensed the new 50x11 animated fantasy series, “Fangbone!” to Disney XD channels in the U.S., Latin America, Southeast Asia and Taiwan; and the original series “Gaming Show (In My Parents' Garage)” to Disney XD in the U.S., which premiered yesterday.
“These are two very strong shows and distinctive within their genre," says Josh Scherba, senior vice president, distribution, DHX Media. "Adventure, fantasy and comedy are core ingredients to great children's content and ‘Fangbone!’ has all of these in spades, while ‘Gaming Show's' cross-platform approach keeps it at the forefront of gaming trends and editorially relevant to its audience. DHX Media continues to work with best-in-class original producers like Radical Sheep and B-Minors, and we are excited to see these series gain broadcast platforms in key international markets."
