Rights to Yo Gabba Gabba Taken Over by DHX Media
Canadian producer and distributor DHX Media has recently taken over all global licensing and broadcast rights to the hit preschool show Yo Gabba Gabba!, which is produced by the company’s subsidiary Wildbrain Entertainment. The rights to the show were previously handled by Zodiak Rights.
Yo Gabba Gabba!, which was created by Christian Jacobs and Scott Schultz and is produced by The Magic Store and Wildbrain Entertainment, is currently in its 4th season, and airs many times a day, seven days a week on Nick. Jr.
Steven DeNure, President and COO of DHX Media said: “It’s a natural step for us to bring the international rights to Yo Gabba Gabba! in-house where we have the distribution and licensing resources to manage the brand globally. We would like to thank Zodiak Rights for their contribution in building the international brand to date, and we are now focused on boosting the presence of Gabba in its existing territories as well as extending its reach into new markets.”
