NCircle Has ‘The Wiggles’25 Jul, 2011 By: Ashley Ratcliff
Kidvid distributor NCircle Entertainment has signed a deal to distribute popular children’s TV program “The Wiggles.”
NCircle, which is celebrating five years in business, will distribute all new and original DVDs from “The Wiggles,” as well as its catalog product, in the United States and Canada. The initial “Wiggles” DVD will be released this fall.
As the previous head of sales at Lyrick Studios (now known as HIT Entertainment), NCircle founder, SVP and GM Debbie Ries helped launch The Wiggles, who have been around for 20 years. Lisa Arlen, NCircle’s VP of sales and marketing, served as a key member of her team at Lyrick.
“Lisa and I are thrilled to be working again with The Wiggles organization,” Ries said. “Their love for children and their infectious music are a joyous blend that continues to enthrall successive generations of little kids and parents. We’re looking forward to a fantastic collaboration as they embark on their third decade of entertaining preschoolers.”
The Wiggles include Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt, Anthony Field and Sam Moran, and have become a hit among children with their catchy yet educational music and interactive live concerts.
