Cynopsis: Kids!

Good morning. It’s Wednesday, June 19, 2013, and this is your first early morning briefing.

TODAY’S TOP HEADLINES

Netflix’s new multiyear deal with DreamWorks Animation puts the companies’ partnership into, shall we say, Turbo mode. DreamWorks plans to produce more than 300 hours of new programming based on the studio’s feature franchises like Shrek, Madagascar, and Kung Fu Panda and, per the new deal, Netflix will have worldwide first-run rights for shows and exclusively offer the original series. The two already were partnered up for Netflix to exclusively offer new DreamWorks original series Turbo F.A.S.T., based on the upcoming DreamWorks animated feature Turbo, about a small snail with big NASCAR dreams. Although the companies did not reveal which DreamWorks properties will get a serialized treatment, they said the programming will be “inspired by characters from DreamWorks Animation’s hit franchises and upcoming feature films.” The deal has the makings of a win for both sides: DreamWorks gets to refresh some of its biggest brands via a needed digital boost, and Netflix gets an infusion of top-line kids content now that the expiration of its deal with Viacom vaporized Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants and other key Nick titles.

In Licensing Expo news, Saban Brands is merging its domestic and international licensing and merchandising teams to create its new Global Consumer Products division. The department is led by Kirk Bloomgarden, who now serves as SVP of global consumer products, and will focus on the global expansion of licensing programs for all Saban properties worldwide including Power Rangers, Paul Frank and upcoming Julius Jr. and Digimon Fusion properties. The new division is ushering in a company reorg: Nina Leong moves into a new role as SVP, strategic business development, and will spearhead efforts to expand the Saban portfolio with new brands, particularly in the lifestyle and fashion space. Mary Rafferty and Dan Wilson also have taken on new roles as VP, global consumer products, and VP, global retail, respectively. In addition, Brian Maeda joins the team as VP, licensing, and will focus on helping to grow Saban Brands’ business in Asia, with a focus on toys and video games. “Saban Brands is only three years old, and we’ve seen expanded growth and continued momentum in that short period of time. We have hundreds of licensees globally and our retail sales have increased exponentially year to year,” said Bloomgarden. In addition to the global team based in the States, Saban plans to open new offices in London, England and Shanghai, China later this year.
