“44 Cats is a fantastic addition to our portfolio” says company’s Francesca Lisle.
Rainbow has appointed Lisle Licensing to handle its 44 Cats property in the UK.
The show debuted on March 4 in the UK, airing on Nick Jr. and with Pop TV planned to begin broadcasting episodes in September.
The 52 x 13-minute animated series follows the adventures of Lampo, Milady, Pilou and Meatball – four kittens who are part of a band named The Buffycats – as they help others to find creative solutions to everyday hitches.
“We are delighted to be working with Rainbow on 44 Cats,” said Francesca Lisle, licensing director at Lisle Licensing. “It is exciting to see so many first class licensees already on board with the licence, and we can’t wait to get to work. It will be a fantastic addition to our portfolio.”
Matteo Olivetti, head of CP sales at Rainbow, added: “We are thrilled to be working with Lisle Licensing and look forward to bringing the enthralling energy of 44 Cats to the UK.”
