Federation Kids & Family is partnering with Planeta Junior to launch an Italian consumer products program for its dance-focused series Find Me in Paris. The agreement will see Planeta Junior manage the show’s licensing rights in the region, with a focus on products highlighting its intrinsic music and dance elements. A publishing deal has already been inked with Mondadori, and a first book is set to hit shelves next year.
The partnership with Planeta Junior comes as Federation Kids & Family continues to grow its licensing reach for Find Me in Paris. Earlier this year, the brand’s French licensing agency France tv Distribution inked a raft of new deals for the tween drama, including Milan (magazines), Soleil (comic books), Nathan (novels and albums), Sahinler (daywear, nightwear, lingerie and swimwear), Royer (slippers, socks, shoes and boots), Ravensburger (puzzles) and CTI (bed linen, blankets, cushions and bathroom accessories).
Now in its second season, Find Me in Paris launched on Disney Channel Italy in November. The 52 x 26-minute series has also sold to NBC Universal Kids and Hulu (US), Nickelodeon (UK), France Télévisions and Disney (France), ZDF (Germany), ABC (Australia) and VRT (Belgium).
