Pip Ahoy and Daisy & Ollie to expand overseas

Jetpack Distribution acquires rights to preschool show brace from CHF Media Group.

Global kids content distributor, Jetpack Distribution has acquired the international rights to two preschool shows from CHF Media Group – Pip Ahoy! and Daisy & Ollie.

Ahead of MIPJUNIOR and MIPCOM in Cannes this October, Jetpack will be looking to secure further homes for the popular properties, which have both already proved a hit in the UK.

Daisy & Ollie (pictured) launched in the UK in November 2017, becoming Cartoonito’s most watched programme at launch and remaining one of the channels most popular shows.

Pip Ahoy!, meanwhile, launched in the UK in 2014 and is now part of ITVBe’s new preschool block, littleBe.

“With a firm footprint now established in the UK, we have been working on behalf of the brand owners for both Pip Ahoy! and Daisy & Ollie to find the right distribution partner to whom we can now hand over these rights,” said Jenny Johnstone, commercial director at CHF Media.

“We wanted to find a company that not only had an excellent market reputation but one that really understood these two very different shows.”
