Cottonwood Media has appointed Retail Monster as exclusive UK licensing agent for the hit tween drama series Find Me in Paris.
Retail Monster will be responsible for the development of Find Me in Paris branded licensed products and merchandise throughout the United Kingdom.
The deal was brokered by Ana Micoud, who leads Cottonwood’s licensing business through her company The Wizards, and says the company was looking for an agency with “a proven-track record and an in-depth knowledge of UK retailer’s needs”.
“With Retail Monster, we feel we have struck the right partnership for the UK market, and look forward to seeing the successful broadcasting appeal of Find Me in Paris translate into iconic and targeted merchandise over the coming months,” she adds.
The UK roll-out of licensing activities for the Find Me in Paris brand will be managed by Gemma Witts, Managing Director for Europe at Retail Monster. She joined Retail Monster from CPLG where she oversaw major UK retail initiatives and worked on a diverse portfolio ranging from Despicable Me and Minions to Care Bears and Sesame Street.
Gemma says: “We are excited to be working with Cottonwood Media and to support the Find Me in Paris licensing programme throughout the UK. The strong ratings for the show on Nickelodeon and the brilliant content plan in place for this brand, will help drive a great programme offering a very fresh and new brand for the Girls and Tween space. We look forward to delivering product and retail partnerships that really capture the empowering spirit of Find Me in Paris.”
Find Me in Paris is time-travelling story that combines world-class ballet, modern dance, drama and comedy. It first premiered in the UK on Nickelodeon in September 2018 and features an international cast, including British actors Isabelle Allen and Jake Swift. Principle photography on season three begins this July.
