DHX Media has concluded a worldwide administration deal for more than 40 titles from DHX Media’s extensive library of television and film content with ole, one of the world’s largest independent music publishers. The deal includes a significant advance payment to DHX Media and gives ole music publishing administration rights for the entire DHX Media group of companies, including recently acquired W!LDBRAIN Entertainment. Under the deal, ole will collect and retain all music publishing revenue and, once it has recouped its advance, remit to DHX these revenues net of an administration fee.
DHX Media CEO Michael Donovan commented: “We are very happy to partner with ole on this venture. This deal again highlights the additional revenue streams we are able to access, unlocking the potential of our library of high-quality, enduring content.”
DHX Media maintains a library of over 2,300 hours of television productions that covers both live action and animated programming. The internationally popular titles in the company’s catalog include That’s So Weird, How To Be Indie, Bo on the GO!, Being Ian, Animal Mechanicals, Naturally Sadie, Franny’s Feet, Kid vs Kat, Angela Anaconda, dirtgirlworld, and Yo Gabba Gabba!, the successful live version of which will be back on the road this fall for a 50-city North American tour under the banner YO GABBA GABBA! LIVE!: It’s Time To Dance.
