Nickelodeon International gets Creepie

From C21 Media:

Nickelodeon gets Creepie

MIP NEWS: LA kids firm Taffy Entertainment has closed a major new deal with Nickelodeon International covering both broadcast and licensing and merchandising rights for animated series Growing Up Creepie.

From early 2008, Nickelodeon will begin rolling out the 28x22' series across its channels in Asia-Pacific, Europe and Latin America after securing the broadcast rights to the show.

But the deal also names Nickelodeon as Taffy's L&M agent in markets including the UK, Germany, Benelux, Japan and Australia. It will also handle video gaming in France.

Taffy will continue to handle L&M in the rest of the world, with the exception of the US, where Discovery Channel holds the broadcast and L&M rights.

The show takes an irreverent look at adolesence through the eyes of Creepie Creecher, a young girl abandoned as a baby and raised by a family of bugs. Currently on air in the US on the Discovery Kids Channel, it is produced by Mike Young Productions and Discovery Kids, in association with DAG Entertainment, Sunwoo Entertainment/Peach Blossom and Telegawl Teoranta.
