Lionsgate has extended its partnership with American Greetings Properties by obtaining the distribution rights to 48 episodes of the new TV series “Care Bears: Adventures in Care-A-Lot,” as well as an all-CGI-animated movie slated for release this fall.
“Expanding our relationship with American Greetings Properties has been a major priority for us in the family entertainment area,” said Anne Parducci, Lionsgate Home Entertainment EVP of marketing. “The Care Bears have been an important and successful brand in our family entertainment portfolio for the last five years and we wanted to complement our existing product with new content.”
