DHX Media has signed a new seven-year broadcast deal with CBeebies for “In the Night Garden,” ensuring that the hit series will be on air in the U.K. through the end of 2020.
“CBeebies is dedicated to delighting its young audience and is pleased to extend transmission of ‘In the Night Garden’ for a further seven years,” says Kay Benbow, controller, CBeebies. “The program charms our youngest viewers with its magical journey of discovery and sense of humor and is the core of our extremely popular Bedtime Hour.”
The brand already has a full licensing program, which is also managed by DHX. Master toy licensee for the brand is Golden Bear and new learning electronic toys from Inspiration Works are set to launch this fall. New licensee Ravensburger will introduce a range of puzzles in January 2014.
