Atlantyca Places School of Roars on Italy’s DeA Junior


Atlantyca Entertainment has licensed the animated series School of Roars, about a group of mini monsters, to De Agostini Editore’s preschool channel DeA Junior in Italy.

School of Roars aims to help prepare young viewers for school life while teaching the importance of caring, sharing, friendship and fun. The 52×7-minute show is executive produced by Jo Killingley (Dot To Dot Productions) and Sarah Legg (CBeebies).

ZDF Enterprises (ZDFE) appointed Atlantyca as the Italian distribution agent for School of Roars. Atlantyca has now also secured the brand’s exclusive Italian licensing rights from ZDFE, with plans to find new L&M and promotional partners in such categories as toys, back-to-school, apparel, gift and FMCG.
