Appointment follows series pick-up by broadcaster ABC Kids.
DHX Brands has appointed Haven as the licensing agent in Australia for its preschool series "Twirlywoos."
The hit CBeebies-commissioned series, alongside fellow DHX preschool show "Teletubbies" was recently picked up by ABC Kids for broadcast in Australia.
Haven also represents "Teletubbies" for licensing in the country.
“We are delighted to team up with DHX Brands for the hotly anticipated re-launch of 'Teletubbies' and their brand new preschool hit 'Twirlywoos,'" says Tom Punch, managing director, Haven Licensing. "The building blocks are set with great TV placement, along with a raft of first class global licensees and we look forward to delivering a powerful 'Twirlywoos' licensing program down under.”
DHX Brands has already signed two exclusive global deals for the series with HarperCollins Children's Books tapped for master publishing and Golden Bear named master toy licensee.
“We are very excited Haven is representing us on our new breakout preschool property "Twirlywoos,'" says Peter Byrne, executive vice president, DHX Brands. "Australia is such a key market for us and with the ABC also on board for broadcast, we are in a very strong position for the launch of the brand.”
