Press Release from Telescreen
Hilversum, 22nd June 2010: The Russian media companies Noviy Disk and Marmelad Media have acquired from Telescreen B.V. all media and merchandising rights to the TV series and licencing brand DIBO – THE GIFT DRAGON for the Russian market. Telescreen, one of Benelux’ leading production-, distribution- and brand management companies, and subsidiary of the Grunwald-based m4e AG, will collaborate closely with both firms in exploiting all rights in Russia and the CIS states.
Noviy Disk, as one of the leading suppliers of video games and DVDs in Russia, will be responsible for the TV and home entertainment sectors (incl. VOD). Marmelad Media is the first Russian brand management company that offers all of its services and products from one source – from production to marketing and promotion. It intends to create a comprehensive programme of merchandising products. Marmelad Media became well-known in Russia through its successful GOGORIKI (Smeshariki) animated series that the company produced and marketed itself, and which became renown and much loved far beyond Russia’s borders.
The pre-school series DIBO – THE GIFT DRAGON (52 x 11 min.) from the Korean studio Ocon Animation, offers a colourful and unique world for children from two to six years of age, in perfect CGI animation. At centre stage in the series is the friendly purple dragon called DIBO who makes wishes and dreams come true with gifts. Gifts that will carry his friends through amazing experiences beyond their wildest dreams. DIBO stimulates children in staying positive and creative minded.
Telescreen will be presenting DIBO – THE GIFT DRAGON together with many other properties, such as for example RUDOLF, and FROG & FRIENDS at the upcomming DISCOP EAST, 23rd to 25th June 2010, in Budapest. Your contact partner on site there is Joris van der Weyden, Director of Home Entertainment & TV Eastern Europe.
