Brands with Influence has been appointed by Animantz to represent licensing efforts in the U.K. for their award-winning children’s animated series, “Beo n Peno.”
“Beo n Peno” is the newest addition to Brands with Influence’s list of clients. In addition to “Beo n Peno,” Brands with Influence represents the likes of Kate Humble, Woolly and Tig, Bush Baby World, Countryfile and Springwatch.
“I am really excited to have Brands with Influence on board to build the licensing program in the U.K.” says Prabakar Thirunavukarasu, producer, Animantz. “I’ve been very impressed with their understanding of the brand and their plan to bring the series to life off screen.”
“Beo n Peno” has been picked up by Amazon Prime Video which is showing the first 13 episodes of the series. The series is also being broadcast internationally on the Kedoo multi-channel network. In the U.K. specifically, the series airs on the Super Toons TV YouTube channel with around 1.5 million subscribers. The series has already built an audience since it was launched in September of this year.
“I was immediately struck by the quality of the production along with the hilarious adventures of the two protagonists, Beo and Peno,” says Dom Wheeler, director, BWI. “There is definitely a nod towards the memorable Hanna-Barbera series of the 1960s and 70s in terms of the slapstick nature of the humor which makes this series so appealing. I see great potential with the licensing opportunities especially where we can successfully translate the personality of the series onto products.”
