Press release from NCircle Entertainment:
Madrid, Spain –
Zinkia Entertainment, brand creator and producer of the hit global multiplatform brand Pocoyo, has renewed its home entertainment agreement with NCircle Entertainment to release additional Pocoyo DVD titles for another five years.
NCircle will release all-new Pocoyo DVD titles, including Pocoyo: Fun& Games and a Halloween themed release later this year. Additionally, the Company has acquired the rights to distribute the DVD releases for Let's Go Pocoyo (season three of the television series) and Pocoyo: Space Circus.
NCircle Entertainment first introduced Pocoyo DVDs to the U.S. marketplace in 2007, and to date, the Company has released five Pocoyo DVD titles, including the NAPPA Gold Award-winning title Dance, Pocoyo Dance, Meet Pocoyo, Pocoyo: Pocoyo & Friends, Let’s Party and Super Pocoyo.
“Demand for Pocoyo is just exceptional, with Pocoyo DVDs now available at numerous mass retailers across the U.S.” said NCircle’s Senior Vice President and General Manager Debbie Ries. “With our recent Parents Choice Award and a very successful promotion with Langers Juice last year, we are committed to build upon our success and to continue to develop Pocoyo’s U.S. fan base of preschoolers and their parents.”
“NCircle has been an integral part of our Pocoyo brand introduction and licensing campaign here in the States,” said Maria Doolan, Managing Director, Brand and Business Development for Zinkia Entertainment. “We greatly appreciate NCircle’s dedication to expanding consumer awareness of Pocoyo’s in-home entertainment products and the value of these products in reinforcing the ‘learning through laughter’ approach to pre-school entertainment content.”
