DreamWorks Animation has acquired the TV library of London-based Chapman Entertainment.
The acquisition gives DreamWorks Animation distribution rights to the series “Fifi and the Flowertots,” “Roary the Racing Car,” “Raa Raa the Noisy Lion” and “Little Charley Bear.” The Chapman titles will be distributed through DreamWorks Animation’s U.K.-based TV distribution operation.
“We’re pleased to bring such original and imaginative programming into the DreamWorks Animation fold,” said Eric Ellenbogen, co-head of DreamWorks Animation international TV and DreamWorks Classics. “The Chapman acquisition reaffirms our commitment to U.K.-based productions of distinction and we look forward to delivering brand-new TV adventures from these popular series.”
Keith Chapman, the originator of “Bob the Builder,” formed Chapman Entertainment in 2002.
