Anchor Bay Picks Up Rights to ‘Tickety Toc’26 Sep, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Anchor Bay Entertainment has nailed down the North American and U.K. rights to preschool show “Tickety Toc,” with plans for a multiplatform release in late 2013.
Toy companies Just Play and Vivid Imaginations will partner on merchandising timed with the release, while show owner Zodiak Kids will have the show broadcast on Taiwan’s PTS and Turkey’s ATV channels.
“Anchor Bay has consistently been home to quality preschool programming,” said Bill Clark, president of Anchor Bay Entertainment. “We’re excited to offer ‘Tickety Toc’ as well and look forward to working with Zodiak Kids.”
Karen Vermeulen, SVP of global sales and coproduction for Zodiak Kids, added: “We are delighted ‘Tickety Toc’ will be joining the brilliant Anchor Bay stable which includes preschool favorites such as ‘Chuggington’ in the U.S. It’s also great to be able to follow the U.S. broadcast with the announcement of more free to air TV partners set to broadcast the series later this year.”
The CGI animated series follows the adventures of two twins and their friends, and launched on Nick Jr. in the U.K. in April, and on Nickelodeon in the United States and France earlier in September.
