Cottonwood Media, has signed a deal with Bentex Group to launch a line of apparel for the drama series Find Me in Paris
Premium European Kids content producer Cottonwood Media, (a Federation Kids & Family company), has signed a deal with U.S. based Bentex Group to launch an exciting line of apparel for the global hit tween drama series Find Me in Paris.
Bentex Group will develop a wide range of core apparel featuring T-shirts, dresses, separates, as well as product extensions with dance and swimwear for tween girls in North America. The product line will support and translate the unique storyline from the hit time-travelling ballet series, combining classic and contemporary looks and delivering fashion items that are great to layer in to express a girl’s unique style, in the same way the characters do in Find Me in Paris.
The deal was brokered by Beacon Rock Growth, licensing agent for Find Me in Paris in the U.S. and Canada, in partnership with Ana Micoud who leads Cottonwood’s licensing business through her company The Wizards.
Find Me in Paris, which has been nominated for ‘Best Live Action Series’ (Tween/Teen Category) at next month’s Kidscreen Awards, has phenomenally sold into 130 countries to date, and broadcasts in over 80 territories worldwide.
“We have seen tremendous results for Find Me in Paris in the U.S., not only in terms of viewing figures but also thanks to the level of engagement from fans across multiple social media platforms. We can’t wait to see the beautifully created fashion lines from Bentex hitting the market, as they have a brilliant track record when it comes to reflecting the heart of brands,” said Ana Micoud.
“We are very excited to be working with Cottonwood on the launch of Find Me in Paris apparel. The beauty of this series should inspire girls to dream of their future and dance to their hearts content,” said Susan Peia, EVP of Licensing, Bentex Group.
With 3 Seasons, FIND ME IN PARIS (78 x 26’) is a premium hit tween series that combines world-class ballet, modern dance, drama and comedy. 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.
