The UK division of entertainment licensing agency CPLG has been busy, picking up Peanuts and signing deals for Novel’s Horrid Henry.
Thanks to a recent agreement with United Media, CPLG is now repping Charlie Brown & Co. in the UK and will hold a licensee summit for partners in the territory on February 25. At the same event, CPLG will be looking for new licensees to expand the program that currently includes gifts and novelties, stationery and fashion and accessories ranges.
On the Horrid Henry front, CPLG sealed a deal with Asylum Entertainment, which will create a Nintendo Wii and DS-compatible video game based on the publishing and TV property. The game, set to rollout Christmas 2009, will see players sent to carry out pranks on grownups and partaking in a number of multi-player challenges. Asylum has also developed games for Peppa Pig, Scooby Doo and Teletubbies.
