The green-hued stars of The Jim Henson Company’s preschool series Doozers are set to appear on more TV screens across the globe, following a raft of pick ups from broadcasters in Europe, the Middle East and New Zealand.
In Europe, broadcasters signing on for the CG-animated series include France Télévisions, RTVE for Clan (Spain), Dreamia (Portugal) and AMC Networks International for Canal Panda (Spain).
German home video distribution company Polyband is now distributing Doozers DVDs in German-language markets.
TV New Zealand (New Zealand) and MediaCorp (Malaysia and Singapore) have both picked up the series, with the latter airing the show on its Okto Channel.
Rounding out the list, children’s channel HOP! (Israel) also scooped up the series, while in the Middle East, Doozers be available on Radio Television Brunei and on Emirates Cable TV & Multimedia’s E-Junior (UAE).
In addition to broadcast and home entertainment deals, the company also appointed new consumer products reps for the brand, including Biplano (France, Spain and Portugal), Active Merchandising International (Germany), Distefano Licensing (Italy) and The Fusion Agency (Australia).
Doozers debuted last April in the US as the first Hulu Original series for kids. Inspired by the popular characters from the company’s classic Fraggle Rock series, Doozers is a co-production of The Jim Henson Company and DHX Media.
