WildBrain to expand brand’s US and UK audience.
WildBrain, a leading digital kids’ network & studio, is saying “Olá!” to the popular Brazilian kids’ brand, Lottie Dottie Chicken, after signing an exclusive global agreement with the brand’s owner, animation studio Bromelia Productions (Bromelia Produções in Portuguese). WildBrain has been appointed by Bromelia to manage the brand’s popular English-language YouTube channels and to launch season one of the new Lottie Dottie Chicken YouTube miniseries (26 x 12’) in the US and UK, with a focus on increasing visibility for the brand among English-speaking audiences.
“Lottie Dottie Chicken is a Brazilian success story, and we’re delighted to help drive its future growth with English-speaking audiences,” says Michael Carroll, Business Development Manager, WildBrain. “WildBrain has proven experience managing and growing English YouTube channels on behalf of international brands, and we’re confident we can deliver the same great content that Brazilian children love to audiences in the US and UK, too.”
“This agreement with WildBrain is exactly the right strategic move for us,” says Juliano Prado, producer and co-creator of Lottie Dottie Chicken. “As digital-savvy experts and leaders in the kids’ YouTube space, they are exactly the right team for us to work with as we look to expand the international reach of our beloved blue chicken, Lottie Dottie.”
“Lottie Dottie has a special connection with the pre-schooler audience in Brazil and Latin America, and we’re very much looking forward to creating this same connection with kids around the world,” adds Marcos Luporini, co-creator of the series.
Aimed at children ages six months to five-years-old, Lottie Dottie Chicken is a popular online brand. Since launching on YouTube in 2006, the brand has amassed more than 20.4 million subscribers across its 10 language channels and in May 2018, it garnered more than 420 million monthly views across all of its channels.
