“In the Night Garden is a universally appealing brand and we are pleased to have ABC and Fusion on board to extend the reach of its magic even further across Australia," said Tom Roe, commercial director of DHX Media.
"We look forward to providing more ways for pre-schoolers and their families to enjoy the whimsical world of Igglepiggle and his friends in this key market.”
Gail Mitchell, managing director of The Fusion Agency, added: “We are thrilled to be working with DHX Media on In the Night Garden.
