Chorion has signed a major deal for new animated property Gaspard and Lisa with Japan's Sony Creative Products.

SCP will become a co-producer on the property, picking up television, home entertainment and merchandising rights for a number of North Asian territories.

SCP and Chorion are also extending their current relationship with the renewal of SCP's exclusive licensing representation for Gaspard and Lisa in the same territories.

TF1 is the lead broadcaster and has been involved in the development of the show, picking up the television and merchandising rights to Gaspard and Lisa for France, where it is set to debut in 2010.

Plans in France include working closely with original publisher Hachette Jeunesse to develop consumer products to sit alongside publishing.

Waheed Ali, chairman of Chorion, said: "Gaspard and Lisa is such a unique property and we are delighted to have signed a further multi-rights deal with Sony Creative Products, extending the reach of the brand in Japan and across Asia."
