Press Release from Target Entertainment Group
Target Entertainment Group has struck a deal with Chapman Entertainment to sell the international TV rights to the 52x10' pre-school comedy animation, Rah Rah! The Noisy Lion, excluding North America and the UK.
Originated by leading UK animation studio Mackinnon & Saunders and co-produced with Chapman Entertainment, Rah Rah! The Noisy Lion is a fun and noisy stop-frame animated series that will help young children to find their voice!
Aimed at two to four year-olds, the series is about a young lion called Rah Rah and his little friends who all live in the Jingly Jangly Jungle. Rah Rah is just finding his voice and when he gets excited he forgets his words and can only manage a roar! Luckily the noisy jungle world he lives in is the perfect place to learn. Rah Rah and his friends discover they can solve noisy mysteries, go on adventures and have a lot more fun if they use gestures, expressions and best of all, words!
Rah Rah! The Noisy Lion has already been picked up by CBeebies in the UK for its 2011 schedule.
Jane Dockery, director of sales and programming at Target Entertainment Group, said: "Rah Rah! The Noisy Lion is the third fantastic show Target has picked up from Chapman Entertainment and we are confident that, like Roary the Racing Car and Fifi and the Flowertots, it will be a huge hit. It's a perfect addition to our quality children's portfolio."
Andrew Haydon, commercial and finance director at Chapman Entertainment comments: "It's great to be working with Target again on Rah Rah The Noisy Lion. We are very excited to be showcasing this adorable new stop-frame series at Mipcom, and we are confident that international broadcasters will love it as much as we do."
