With the new Hi-5 series having aired in the UK last November, E1 Entertainment has climbed on-board to rep the brand in the territory on behalf of Hi-5 Operations.
Planning a wide-ranging licensing campaign, E1 is on the hunt for licensing partners for the music-led preschool property. Interested parties are asked to get in touch with E1′s licensing manager Hannah Mungo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The series, adapted for the UK market last year from the Aussie original, made a splash 10 years ago. It airs four times a day on Turner’s Cartoonito (8 a.m., 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.) and rates among the top five programs for girls age four to nine. It also airs on GMTV’s Fluffy Cub on ITV1/CITV Saturdays and Sundays and GMTV2′s 8:30 a.m. to 9:25 a.m. preschool block.
