Bulldog Licensing will lead the UK and Ireland licensing programme for Zag Studio’s latest animation Power Players, which premieres in the territory on Cartoon Network this month.

The agency is already in negotiation with a number of licensees, it has revealed, across a range of categories including apparel, home, gifting, publishing and more.

Rob Corney, MD, Bulldog Licensing, says: “We’re thrilled to welcome Power Players into the Bulldog family. The fun, fast-paced series is a real showcase of the huge talent at Zag, and the strong characters and storylines have made for a colourful and creative style guide which will inspire leading licensees across categories.

“Our initial discussions with potential partners have been overwhelmingly positive, and we are looking forward to announcing new deals and rolling out the consumer products soon.”
