    Nelvana Inks Multi-Year U.S. Home Entertainment Library Deal

    Cinedigm takes US DVD and transactional digital rights to 3,000 Nelvana episodes

    TORONTO, CANADA - September 11, 2018 - Corus Entertainment's Nelvana has inked a significant multi-year home entertainment deal with Cinedigm for multiple titles from its world-famous children's content library including classic series like Babar, Babar and the Adventures of Badou and Bakugan Battle Brawlers.

    Los Angeles-based Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) has taken DVD and transactional digital rights for more than 3,000 episodes and will be kicking off the deal with Nelvana's hit preschool series Ranger Rob, which focuses on the adventures of the Big Sky Park ranger and his gregarious group of friends. Additionally, Cinedigm will be releasing DVDs of The ZhuZhus, the Disney Channel series based on the US$2-billion toy brand.

    "These extensive home entertainment deals with first-in-class partner Cinedigm, broadens Nelvana's North American footprint, enabling U.S. fans to access our iconic library of children's content wherever and whenever they want," said Pam Westman, Head, Nelvana Enterprises.

    Nelvana's laugh-out-loud series 6Teen, and CGI interactive series Little Charmers are also included in the deal. Cinedigm will release Babar and Father Christmas, Babar: King of the Elephants, Babar: The Movie, Franklin and the Turtle Lake Treasure and Pippi Longstocking for digital purchase in November.

    "The Nelvana catalog includes both exciting newer properties as well as beloved series which have entertained and engaged multiple generations over the years," said Yolanda Macias, Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. "Through our broad digital and physical reach in the U.S., we are thrilled to expand Nelvana's distribution of these well-known programs and help bring them to both long-time fans and new audiences alike."

    Cinedigm has also renewed streaming rights for six Nelvana series, including Babar and Maggie and the Ferocious Beast, for its Dove and ConTV streaming networks.
