Coolabi’s Poppy Cat gets a Digital Deal

UK producer and rights management company Coolabi has recently landed a US distribution deal with Entertainment One (eOne) for its preschool-targeted animated show Poppy Cat starting this fall.

Based on British author Lara Jones’ popular bestselling book series, Poppy Cat was originally commissioned by Nick Jr. UK and debuted on the 24 hr preschool channel PBS Kids Sprout last November. The series is currently syndicated by more than 20 broadcasters all over the globe, including Disney Junior in Spain and Latin America, Nick Jr. Australia, TVO, SCN and Knowledge Network in Canada, RTE Ireland, across Scandinavia and the Middle East. Poppy Cat is co-produced by Coolabi Productions and the BAFTA award winning King Rollo Films.

Coolabi has also recently settled a $7.7 million management buyout by shareholder Edge Performance, which gives the company access to new funds and better financial leverage for the growth of its brands. One of the more recent fruits of the buyout is the launching of a digital strategy for Poppy Cat with Nick Jr, and a book tie-in with MacMillan.
