DHX Media and Turner Broadcasting have recently inked a deal for a new animated series based on the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs franchise. Aptly titled “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: The Series,” the new property will consist of 26 x 22 minute episodes and will serve as an extension of Sony Pictures Animation’s iconic film franchise.
DHX Media will be producing the series alongside Sony Pictures Animation, while Turner Broadcasting will be picking up the series for their second flagship kids channel, Boomerang, for the APAC, EMEA, and Latin American market. Canada will get the series through Teletoon.
DHX Media will be in charge of global TV, licensing, merchandising, and non-US home entertainment rights to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: The Series, while home entertainment distribution rights for the US will be handled by Sony.
