WildBrain Inks New Deals for Carmen Sandiego


WildBrain has signed new distribution and consumer products deals for its animated series Carmen Sandiego, produced with HarperCollins Productions.

Seasons one through four of the series were acquired by RTS (Switzerland), TVNZ (New Zealand), BIGI Channel (Israel), Edel Music and Entertainment (Germany) and SIC K and Txillo (Portugal). New consumer products partners signed by WildBrain CPLG are Threadless, The Loyal Subjects and Tonies.

Threadless will develop a range of products across apparel, home decor, bedding, headwear, bags, accessories, hosiery, skateboards and decks. The Loyal Subjects will create fashion dolls and figurines that showcase Carmen Sandiego throughout the years. Tonies will produce a new digital audio product.

Carmen Sandiego follows the adventures of the titular master thief who uses her skills for good. Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) voices Carmen, while Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) voices Player, Carmen’s chief accomplice and friend.

Caroline Tyre, VP of global sales and rights strategy, said: “The new Carmen Sandiego series continues to drive engagement with partners around the world. We’re pleased to further our work with HarperCollins Productions to bring the characters to life both on screen and in consumer products for longtime fans and new audiences.”

Caroline Fraser of HarperCollins Productions added: “The character of Carmen Sandiego is incredibly intriguing to kids and families today. In addition to being the world’s greatest thief, Carmen Sandiego’s overarching theme—to learn about and celebrate all cultures—has never been more important. Our goal has been to bring this theme to kids and families through multiple touchpoints, including onscreen and through consumer products. WildBrain is the perfect partner to achieve that goal.”
