9 Story Signs New Deal for Wibbly Pig
Toronto, Canada -- 9 Story Entertainment has partnered with NCircle Entertainment for home entertainment sales of its animated preschool comedy series Wibbly Pig (26x22’) in the U.S.
“NCircle is known for its portfolio of high quality programming with enduring brands and we are delighted to be working with them to launch Wibbly Pig DVD sales in the U.S.,” said Natalie Osborne, EVP Business Development, 9 Story Entertainment.
“We are pleased to bring Wibbly Pig to our NCircle family. We know that our consumers will love this charming and engaging series as much as we do!,” said Debbie Ries, SVP and General Manager, NCircle Entertainment.
Wibbly Pig takes the daily routine of a young child and finds humor and fun in every part of it. 9 Story co-produced the series with Wish Films (UK), which was originally commissioned by the BBC’s Cbeebies, TVO and Knowledge Network. The series is based on the hugely successful Wibbly Pig books by Mick Inkpen, which sold over 2.2 million copies worldwide. The series is currently seen in over 100 countries, and premieres on Sprout (US) during The Good Night Show on August 27th.
Wibbly simply does what children do - from day to day activities like getting into bed, wrapping a present or climbing a tree, to fantasy play like meeting a giant or going to the moon. He moves seamlessly in and out of fantasy play, echoing the way children really interact and play. The simplest tasks are turned into a comedy routine, which Wibbly shares with his very best friend - the viewer.
