Serious Lunch to Rep Matt Hatter Chronicles


Platinum Films has appointed Serious Lunch to manage the worldwide content rights for Matt Hatter Chronicles.

When ordinary schoolboy Matt Hatter discovers a hidden portal in his family’s movie theater, he is transported to a mirror dimension where he becomes defender of the Multiverse. With his friends Roxie and Gomez, the new Hatter Hero must battle Super Villains, defend the realms and save his Grandpa.

Serious Lunch will be collaborating with Bomanbridge Media for Asian sales.

Nigel Stone of Platinum Films said: “With a substantial investment into the Matt Hatter franchise, we felt it was very important that the IP had first-class, global representation so we were delighted to conclude a deal with Serious Lunch and for them to be able to continue the programming success that would entertain the next generation of young fans.”

Leila Ouledcheikh, director of global sales for Serious Lunch, added: “Matt Hatter is a groundbreaking property that enjoyed early success since launching on CITV in the U.K. and gained an impressive screen presence on major international linear platforms including Clan TVE Spain, Gulli and Canal J in France, Canal Panda in Portugal, Jeem TV, Teletoon Canada, Network 10, Cartoon Network India, MENA, Greece and Turkey, and many more. The brand also enjoyed a theatrical release in 2015 and a TV movie in 2018. We look forward to identifying new markets as well as relishing the existing 20 language versions available for the series, by developing the IP’s digital presence primarily with VOD partners.”
