Dreamworks to launch international children’s channels
Dreamworks Animation has confirmed it will launch a number of branded kids channels internationally and use Fox as global distributor, reports Advanced Televison.
Chief executive Jeffrey Katzenberg said that it would look to partner with Fox to launch a Dreamworks channel. “They are a very, very, very strong, powerful force internationally in TV distribution. I think they have over 350 channels up and running. So it’s hard to find a stronger, better force for us as we look at the international marketplace.”
Dreamworks’ TV slate currently includes Penguins of Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness and Monsters vs. Aliens for Nickelodeon as well as Dragons: Riders of Berk for Cartoon Network. The company had previously worked with Paramount Pictures for distribution, both in the United States and internationally.
