HIT Entertainment has inked a broadcast and licensing agreement with Super RTL for the new CG-animated series Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps.
The German channel has snapped up 80 x 13-minute episodes of the new series, which is aimed at kids ages four to seven. It will launch on the Toggolino preschool slot on Super RTL in the spring and join fellow HIT properties Thomas & Friends and Bob the Builder, which currently air on the block.
And under the licensing representation agreement, Super RTL will manage the rights for Angelina Ballerina consumer products, home entertainment and publishing in the German market. The agent will also support the launch of Mattel’s new Angelina Ballerina toy product line in fall/winter 2011, which will include play sets, figures, dolls and plush.
A new style guide has been produced to fully support the new CG-animated look of the series and will be available to all licensees.
