Federation Kids & Family and its sister prodco Cottonwood Media have forged a new key partnership with leading Chinese family entertainment company UYOUNG for preschool animation hit The Ollie & Moon Show (52 x 11’), covering all SVOD, broadcast and licensing rights to the property in mainland China.
Based on the best-selling books by author/illustrator Diane Kredensor (also creative producer on the show), The Ollie & Moon Show stars two cute, kooky cats with a knack for turning everyday life events into zany globetrotting adventures. Kredensor developed the series with Robert Vargas (Wonderpets, Henry Hugglemonster) and David Michel (Totally Spies!, Get Blake). Broadcast in 150 territories, the show earned a Common Sense Media Seal in the US for offering an exceptional media experience for families.
Clara Yang, VP International Business for UYOUNG commented: “Cats are considered lucky mascots in China so we feel very lucky and delighted to be representing this exciting new property in the region. With strong visual humor we think The Ollie & Moon Show has all the ingredients to deliver success in China.”
As one of China’s fastest-growing and most highly regarded kids’ and family production, sales and merchandising companies, UYOUNG is the ideal partner to give Ollie & Moon a solid pawprint in Asia’s biggest market.
“We are delighted to take our first foray into China with the best partner possible, and are proud to work with a company that shares our love for great creative work,” said David Michel, President of Cottonwood Media and Federation Kids & Family. “UYOUNG’s commitment to a broad-based licensing program is key to Ollie & Moon’s success, and we are excited to see how it will perform with the Chinese audience, both on TV and in consumer products.”
The Ollie & Moon Show is produced by Cottonwood Media and distributed by Federation Kids & Family. The show has been picked up by Universal Kids’ Sprout (US), Netflix (US & Canada), France Televisions), Discovery Kids (Latin America, Middle East), TVO (Canada), VRT (Belgium) and Knowledge (Canada).
