"Storming" Around the World

Fresh on the heels of licensing deals that will broadcast RTI Mediaset’s animated series “Storm Hawks” to much of the world, BRB Internacional acquired the television, DVD, and licensing rights from Nerd Corps to bring the animated series to Spain and Portugal. Canada’s YTV will begin airing the program this year, as well as Germany’s RTL II, France 3, and the Cartoon Network in the U.S., UK, France, and Latin America. MGM Worldwide Television Distribution secured the rights to broadcast the series in all territories, excluding North America and Latin America.

This fall, Spin Master plans to release its first line of “Storm Hawks” toys, serving as the cartoon’s master toy licensee. The cartoon follows the adventures of five teens who, on flying motorcycles, battle skybound villains.
