Los Angeles, CA -- Evolution has been appointed as the global licensing agent for children’s property This One ‘N That One, created by actress, artist, author and designer Jane Seymour and actor, writer, director and producer James Keach.
“This One ‘N That One is an endearing and engaging children’s property that naturally lends itself to a wide array of licensed products, promotions, technologies and services,” said Evolution’s President of Licensing & Retail Development, Travis Rutherford. “In addition to the traditional children’s licensed product lines, we will also be exploring the family and educational categories, which will reinforce the opportunities and challenges of raising twins.”
This One 'N That One are comical twin kittens who are full of laughter and love and lots of mischief. This One is definitely more of a thinker than his brother, That One. He likes to consider every angle, but his indecisiveness can sometimes be a bigger problem than That One's recklessness. He is, however, adept at reasoning his way out of tough situations, and what he lacks in brawn, he makes up for in cleverness. They reside with their parents, Big Jim Cat and Lady Jane, in a home by the sea.
Based on Jane Seymour and James Keach's own twin sons, these two kittens have many exciting adventures in the three book series originally published by Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, as well as additional books published by Angel Gate, a division of Left Field Ink, Inc. Keach’s PCH Films has partnered with Cosmic Toast Studios on the development, production and distribution of the animated series This One ‘N That One for launch in fall 2014.
“We’re very excited to work with Evolution and Cosmic Toast Studios on taking our children’s property to a wider audience through appropriate licensing, marketing and broadcast opportunities,” Jane Seymour and James Keach jointly stated. “We look forward to working with the entire Evolution team to orchestrate and oversee a worldwide licensing campaign that will be well supported by the introduction of the This One ‘N That One animated television series, slated for launch in fall 2014, along with additional short-form content.
“As a partner of PCH Films, Cosmic Toast Studios is thrilled to bring the This One ‘N That One brand to market with the Evolution team,” said Cosmic Toast Studios CEO Deb Pierson. “CTS is excited and proud to bring its diverse talents and creative capabilities to this production as we introduce This One ‘N That One to families around the world.”
Evolution will unveil This One ‘N That One at this year’s Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas, focusing initial licensed product assortments on plush, apparel, accessories, apps, toys, play-sets, storybooks, coloring and activity books, how-to books and DVD’s, which are all intended to launch in specialty and online retailers beginning spring/summer 2014, with expansion to mass retailers in spring 2015, following the release of the animated series.
