Dublin-based animation studio Geronimo is teaming with Brands with Influence on its latest pre-school property, Nelly & Nora.
The new series will air on CBeebies in the UK, RTE in Ireland and KiKa in Germany later this year. It is the first pre-school animation to have its storytelling driven totally by the weather.
On the back of the strong programme sales, Brands with Influence will manage the Nelly & Nora licensing campaign on a global scale.
Walker Books has already licensed the global rights for book publishing, while Immediate Media is on board with its CBeebies and Toybox magazines.
BWI is also working closely with BBC Worldwide – which is managing the programme distribution – and international deals have been secured in the UK, Germany, France, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Czech Republic.
Martin Lowde, CEO at Brands with Influence, commented: "We see a great range of new formats and occasionally one just jumps out and grabs you. Nelly & Nora is just that series. It has a unique and beautiful style.
"You can’t fail to fall in love with the two sisters as they discover the world and the wonders of our ever changing weather."
