Firm acquires new tween comedy from Classic Media and Nelvana.
Nickelodeon has broadened its portfolio, adding new tween comedy series from Classic Media and Nelvana - Life with Boys - to its roster.
The partnership for the 22-episode series covers exclusive TV rights in the US and pay TV rights for regional Nickelodeon channels across Europe - including Germany, Benelux and the Nordics - as well as Latin America and Asia.
Broadcast rights for the UK were previously secured by Nickelodeon in an earlier deal with Helion Pictures.
"Life with Boys is a perfect addition to our programming line-up, and we feel the tween series will enhance our global audience's TV viewing experience," said Jules Borkent, SVP, programming and acquisitions at Nickelodeon.
The show follows 14 year-old Tess Foster as she navigates her way through the turmoil of teen life, while living at home with her dad and three brothers.
