Spotlight Licensing to Launch Cottonwood Media's 'The Ollie & Moon Show™' for Licensing Across U.S. and Canada
Wide Range of Potential Products Envisioned as Adorable Animated Series
Is Set to Air on Sprout, Netflix, TVO, Knowledge and in 160+ Territories Worldwide
NEW YORK (May 16, 2017) – Spotlight Licensing and Brand Management, Inc. (spotlightlicensing.com), has been appointed by Paris-based Cottonwood Media to represent the animated preschool television series The Ollie & Moon Show™ for licensing in the U.S. and Canada.
“The Ollie & Moon Show is an adorable animated property that makes the idea of world travel fun and accessible to kids,” says Spotlight Licensing President Carole Postal. “We are excited to be working with Cottonwood Media to make this fantastic brand available for licensing across a wide range of children’s toys, games, travel goods, apps, apparel, accessories, room décor, and other products involving children and their real or imaginary travels.”
The Ollie & Moon Show (52 x 11) is an animated, upper-preschool, television series celebrating unusual friendships, curiosity, and appreciating the differences in all of us. The series stars two cute and kooky cats – the carefree, adventurous, and happy-go-lucky moon along with the practical, straight-laced, by-the-book Ollie – who have a knack for spinning everyday preschool life into zany globetrotting adventures.
The television series is based on the best-selling Ollie & Moon books created by author and illustrator Diane Kredensor. Kredensor, who serves as creative producer for The Ollie & Moon Show, is an Emmy Award-winning artist, director and producer whose credits include “Pinky and the Brain” and “Clifford the Big Red Dog,” among others. The show was developed in collaboration with Kredensor by Robert Vargas (Wonderpets, Henry Hugglemonster), and David Michel (Totally Spies!, Get Blake).
“The fact that we already have such a diverse a global network in more than 160 territories is a wonderful testament to the universal appeal of this original property. We are sure that the success we have had in adapting Ollie & Moon’s tremendous publishing success to television will translate into a very exciting licensing strategy,” says Cottonwood Media CEO David Michel.
The Ollie & Moon Showhas already been picked up in over 160 territories worldwide and airs in the U.S. on Sprout beginning May 27. The Ollie & Moon Show will also be available for streaming via Netflix beginning in February 2018. In Canada, The Ollie & Moon Show airs on TVO and Knowledge.
