‘Ricky Zoom’ Races into the U.S. with Nick
Entertainment One’s preschool property “Ricky Zoom” is joining Nickelodeon’s top-tier lineup of partners for launch in the U.S. next month.
The current partnerships of linear, paid and VOD platforms continue to grow as “Ricky Zoom” adds Nickelodeon to Super RTL (Germany), Clan TV (Spain), Gulli (France), RAI (Italy), Youku (China) and Discovery Kids (Latin America), with further deals in the pipeline.
“The U.S. will play a key role in the rollout of ‘Ricky Zoom’ around the world” says Monica Candiani, executive vice president, international content sales, family and brands, eOne. “Securing a broadcaster of this caliber in this crucial market is a reflection of the high-quality animation and storytelling that people have come to expect from an eOne show, and we’re delighted to strengthen our long-standing relationship with Nickelodeon.”
The launch of “Ricky Zoom” on Nickelodeon joins a new official app “Ricky Zoom: Welcome to Wheelford,” featuring games and digital playgrounds to keep children engaged between episodes.
eOne recently made headlines when it was announced that the company was acquired by Hasbro for $4 billion.
