We’re thrilled to be launching with They loved the show and, together with our partners, have been fantastic in developing the collection during such a challenging time for all involved in manufacturing.”

“We have every confidence in this show as further deals are to be announced shortly,” Lawrence continued. “Not only is this show funny and packed with character, being non-verbal and built around our love for our pets, especially pugs, means that this show reaches a much wider audience.”

Patricia De Wilde, director of marketing and new business at TeamTO, added, “We are delighted to be working with This is Iris to make Mighty Mike a household name in the U.K. Sarah’s original and creative approach to bringing out Mike’s inherent humor, personality and charm is guaranteed to result in a spectacular licensing range. We can’t wait for U.K. fans to discover our favorite pet pug!”
