Planeta Junior will take on the licensing rights to the series revolving around music, ballet and modern dance. A first key book deal has already been signed with Milan-based publisher Mondadori, which will launch in 2019.
“We are thrilled to have a brand of such high standard to work with,” says Simone Fenu, country manager, Italy, Planeta Junior. “The high production budget, on-location filming in Paris and the Opera Garnier, and the world-class choreography, have made this a compelling brand across all categories. We are really proud to work side-by-side with a top entertainment company like Cottonwood.”
“With major licensing partners in France and Germany already working on a strong merchandise program ranging from books and magazines, to bedding, fashion, toys and stationery, we have no doubt ‘Find Me in Paris’ will become a hot and fashionable property in Italy,” says David Michel, managing director, Federation Kids & Family. “We are delighted to benefit from Planeta Junior’s licensing experience, and we’re fully committed to working with the best licensees in the Italian market to build ‘Find Me in Paris’ into a long term franchise.”
Now in its second season, “Find Me in Paris” launched on the Disney Channel Italy in November 2018, alongside a worldwide debut on platforms across the globe including: NBC Universal Kids and HULU (U.S.), Nickelodeon (U.K.), France Télévisions and Disney (both in France), ZDF (Germany), ABC (Australia) and VRT (Belgium), among others.
