DHX Media has signed a global distribution deal to the Air Bud franchises with Air Bud Entertainment.
As part of the deal, the company will distribute 15 films, including the all-new feature Pup Star about a Yorkshire Terrier.
“These family films are heavy on both the cute and comedy factors, making them perfectly pitched for wide international appeal,” said Josh Scherba, SVP of distribution at DHX Media.
“Air Bud has a preeminent reputation for animal-starred adventure films and these 15 titles make a strong addition to the DHX Media distribution library.”
The distribution deal spans across Air Bud’s prodcutions, including the original Air Bud movie, as well as Air Bud: Spikes Back, Chestnut: Hero of Central Park, MVP: Most Valuable Primate and more.
Anna McRoberts, president of Air Bud, added: “DHX is an excellent distribution partner for us with their specificity on family content and their global breadth and reach.
“Their focus, as is ours, is delivering great content to family audiences globally and we see this as the start of a strong partnership of our strategically aligned brands.”
