Nelvana’s Franklin Adds New Agents

Corus Entertainment's Nelvana has appointed two new licensing agents for its preschool brand Franklin and Friends in German-speaking territories and Turkey.

Euro Lizenzen will build the brand’s licensing program in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland to coincide with the TV series’ launch on German children’s channel KiKA this summer.

Licensing agent and TV distributor Filma will represent the brand for merchandising in Turkey.

Both agents will be showcasing Franklin and Friends at Licensing Expo next month in Las Vegas, Nev.
