FremantleMedia Enterprises has secured the licensing and interactive rights to UK design property Bang on the Door.
The agreement covers Eastern Europe, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
FME will now be looking to grow the popular brand through various categories including apparel, accessories, home decor, stationery, beauty and gifting.
"The quality of the characters and the way fans engage with the brand is really exciting," said Diana Dieckmann, VP of licensing, Germany and Eastern Europe, FME. "It's colourful, it's friendly and the wonderful style guide gives so many opportunities to create beautiful products. Bang on the Door is such a strong brand already and it is an honour to work with the two designers, Karen Duncan and Samantha Stringle."
