Sutikki—the kids and family division of Bento Box Entertainment—has signed a distribution and merchandising partnership with Toronto, Canada-based 9 story for its new preschool series Moon and Me.
Offering full-service management, 9 Story Distribution International will handle worldwide sales (excluding the US, the UK and China), while 9 Story Brands acts as the IP’s licensing agent outside of the UK and China.
Sutikki and 9 Story will collaborate on overseeing existing partnerships with master toy licensee Hasbro and master publishing partner Scholastic. And Sutikki will continue to run distribution in the UK, as well as in mainland China through an existing partnership with UYoung.
Moon and Me (50 x 52 minutes) is pegged to premiere on CBeebies (UK) and Universal Kids (US) this year. Co-produced by Sutikki and Andrew Davenport’s Foundling Bird, the musical comedy series is about toys that come to life when nobody is looking.
