DHX Media has acquired worldwide distribution and merchandising rights to Twirlywoos, a new UK preschool series commissioned by CBeebies.
Ragdoll Productions will produce the 50 x 11-minute show in association with DHX Media, which will also handle global distribution, merchandising, brand management and marketing.
Last year, DHX Media acquired Teletubbies owner Ragdoll Worldwide for US$27.7 million from BBC Worldwide and an investor group led by founder Anne Wood.
Ragdoll was originally a joint-venture between BBC Worldwide and Wood’s production firm.
Twirlywoos, created and executive produced by Wood, features four bird-like characters looking to learn something new about the world.
