Cottonwood Media has appointed Beacon Rock Growth as the licensing agent for tween modern dance drama Find Me in Paris in the US and Canada.

Beacon Rock will focus on expanding the hit show into new branded licensed products and merchandise opportunities.

The roll-out of licensing activities in the US and Canada will be managed by Johanna Mooney, Founder of Beacon Rock Growth with more than 20 years’ experience in licensing, including senior roles at The Walt Disney Company.

“We are excited to be working with content with the incredible storytelling and quality from Cottonwood, and the expertise and credibility of The Paris Opera,” says Johanna. “Find Me in Paris brings to life all the key ingredients girls and boys around the globe love and connect with, through an amazing cast and story. Previous successful merchandise programs in North America based on European content gives us the confidence that this series will translate strongly at retail.”

The deal was brokered by Ana Micoud, who leads Cottonwood’s licensing business through her company The Wizards, and says: “The [Beacon Rock] team has in-depth experience on building licensed programs for tweens and teen properties and is knowledgeable about how to articulate a targeted retail product proposal capable of driving value for all parties.”

Currently airing on Hulu (US) and CBC (Canada), Find Me in Paris has already sold into 130 countries and currently broadcasts in over 80 territories worldwide. It follows the story of Lena Grisky, a time-travelling ballet dancer from 1905 Russia trapped in modern day Paris, and the many dilemmas she faces finding her place between two worlds. The show is now in its third season.
