Cyber Group Studios appoints Those Licensing People to handle UK licensing push for ZOU

Those Licensing People is looking to partner ZOU with appropriate UK publishers and toy companies.

Cyber Group Studios has appointed UK agent Those Licensing People to handle the UK and Eire licensing rights for Disney Junior's ZOU.

Zou is a zippy little Zebra whose valuable experiences within the context of a safe family environment expose him to valuable life lessons. Broadcast in the UK on Disney Junior, ZOU is one of the broadcaster's top shows.

Those Licensing People is looking to partner ZOU with appropriate UK publishers and toy companies as a basis for expanding the property across a wide portfolio of licensing opportunity.

“It is a privilege to be invited to act in the UK and Eire on behalf of this wonderful property which fits neatly into a slate of IP we have taken great care to develop," said Russell Neale Anthony Dever, MD of Those Licensing People.

"We aspire to become an important part of the Cyber Group Studios offering, working with Pierre and his team will be a joy.”

The third series of ZOU has been produced for and prebought by Disney EMEA, and is scheduled to premiere on Disney Junior France by the end of 2016 and in the UK early 2017.

Pierre Sissmann, chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios, added: “I am thrilled of this UK partnership with TLP for developing ZOU, which is already a big brand worldwide and has enjoyed great ratings all over the world.

"I have considerable confidence in Russell and his team to make this another success and bring to the table first-class licensing and promotional partners, like we have everywhere else.”
