DHX Media has signed a far-reaching deal with Turner Broadcasting for the new animated television series Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: The Series, based on the Sony Pictures Animation blockbuster film franchise.
The 26 x 22' animated series which DHX Media is producing with Sony Pictures Animation, commissioned by TELETOON in Canada, has been picked up by Turner Broadcasting for its second flagship kids channel, Boomerang across EMEA, APAC, and Latin America.
DHX Media handles global television, licensing and merchandising and non-US home entertainment rights to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: The Series (Sony will distribute home entertainment in the US). The series is being produced at DHX's animation studio in Vancouver, BC. ...
There was a time long ago (eighteen months?) when Boomerang was the TV Land of cartoon cable networks. It showed old Warners, M-G-M and Hanna-Barbera product, and not much else.
But then, it used to be commercial free. And the "Look Ma! No ads!" thingie went bye-bye a while ago.
Boomerang steps deeper into the Big Leagues with the Meatballs acquisition, but it's already showing a newer selection of cartoon series. As of today, the network will debut new episodes from six new series, including Wabbit, Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, The Garfield Show, Shaun the Sheep, Sonic Boom, and DreamWorks Dragons.
