Hollywood Gang To Make Live-Action "Winx Club" Movie

Warner Bros.-based Hollywood Gang has partnered with Italy's Rainbow Group to develop and produce a live-action movie inspired by the hit animated and popular global Winx Club TV series, Deadline Hollywood is reporting!


The news comes after Netflix recently announced it ordered two seasons of programming this year for an animated Winx Club spinoff series from Rainbow called Winx Club Wow: World Of Winx. The property heavily draws in a young, female demographic.

The series is set in a vividly imagined world, where Bloom, a girl from Earth crosses into a Magical Dimension to enroll at Alfea College - the best school for fairies in all the realms. At Alfea College, Bloom and her fairy friends, each of whom possesses powers unique to their character, join together to form the Winx Club.

Hollywood Gang president Gianni Nunnari and The Rainbow Group Founder and CEO Iginio Straffi put the deal together. Straffi called a live-action version of the series "a dream of mine since the very beginning."

"It's a charming, magical, infectiously empowering, and hip series," said Nunnari in a statement. "We are tremendously excited to bring the live-action feature of this international sensation to the big screen for the world to enjoy."

Nunnari, best known for Seven, The Departed, and 300. Hollywood Gang and the producer are currently developing a slew of projects including Napoleon, Robotech, A Willing Patriot, Blood In Blood Out, Emperor and Dante's Inferno.

Brand-new episodes of Winx Club season 7 currently air every Sunday at 10am and 10:30am on Nick Jr. USA.

Nickelodeon's "The Halo Effect" Recognizes Florida Teen Jaylen Arnold for His Anti-Bullying Activism in "Jaylen's Challenge," Premiering Monday, Feb. 22, at 8:30 P.M. (ET/PT) On Nick USA

Original Nickelodeon USA Press Release via The Futon Critic:

NICKELODEON'S "THE HALO EFFECT" RECOGNIZES FLORIDA TEEN JAYLEN ARNOLD FOR HIS ANTI-BULLYING ACTIVISM IN "JAYLEN'S CHALLENGE," PREMIERING MONDAY, FEB. 22, AT 8:30 P.M. (ET/PT)

Follow The HALO Effect on Twitter @NickelodeonHALO and Facebook #HALOEffectChallenge


NEW YORK - FEB. 10, 2016 - Extraordinary teen Jaylen Arnold fights to end bullying in a brand-new episode of The HALO Effect, "Jaylen's Challenge," premiering Monday, Feb. 22, at 8:30pm (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The episode profiles Arnold, a 14-year-old from Lakeland, Fla., who decided to take a stance against bullying and build a friendlier world through his organization, Jaylen's Challenge Foundation, after being bullied in school for his disability. Airing monthly on Nickelodeon, The HALO Effect highlights teens who "help and lead others "(HALO) in their community and inspire others to do the same.

In "Jaylen's Challenge," Arnold fights bullying with words and experience instead of fighting back physically. At the age of 8, he was bullied so severely because of his Tourette's tics that he had to leave school for three months. Upon his return, Arnold wanted to help other kids that were being bullied so he created the Jaylen's Challenge Foundation. His organization is dedicated to promoting awareness and prevention of bullying through education and community service. Arnold goes around the country giving presentations and workshops on the effects of bullying and how to stop it. He also helps kids create Jaylen's Challenge Ambassador Clubs in their schools to help spread his "Bullying No Way" message.

Since its inception, the Jaylen's Challenge Foundation has taught over 130,000 children how to recognize bullying and to appreciate the differences in each other. In recognition of his commitment to anti-bullying, Nickelodeon's The HALO Effect will award a $10,000 grant to Arnold's organization.

In each episode of The HALO Effect, the profiled teen will issue a "HALO Effect Challenge," a call-to-action encouraging inspired viewers to participate in their cause and join the HALO movement. As part of Arnold's "HALO Effect Challenge," he is encouraging everyone to take part in Jaylen's Challenge and post a selfie or video of themselves performing a random act of kindness. Viewers can get more information on Jaylen Arnold and his challenge at www.nick.com/haloeffect. This episode of The HALO Effect is sponsored by American Family Insurance.

The HALO Effect launched in 2013 as a year-round initiative recognizing one deserving teen every month for their work to help and lead others in their community. The initiative was built upon Nickelodeon's HALO Awards, an annual concert event honoring young community leaders with a grant for their organization and scholarship funds. To date, more than 50 teens across the country have been honored and have received more than $400,000 in grants to fund their non-profit organizations.

The HALO Effect series expands Nickelodeon's ongoing commitment to the HALO movement by giving an in-depth look into the inspirational stories of teens who are eager to share the issues and projects important to them and excited to engage others to achieve impact. The monthly series is hosted by Sydney Park (Instant Mom) and executive produced by Nick Cannon and NCredible Entertainment, as well as Morgan Spurlock, Richard Arlook, Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin and Ethan Goldman of Warrior Poets.

Nickelodeon, now in its 36th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature film offerings. Nickelodeon's U.S. television network is seen in almost 100 million households and has been the number-one-rated basic cable network for 20 consecutive years. Nickelodeon and all related titles, characters and logos are trademarks of Viacom Inc. (NASDAQ: VIA, VIAB).

UK Programmers Commit To Statement Of Practice To Protect On-Demand Viewers

Original COBA Press Release via coba.org.uk:

Content providers commit to Statement of Practice to protect on-demand viewers

Members of the Commercial Broadcasters Association have signed up to a Statement of Practice for Video-on-Demand (VoD) services, committing to make child protection a priority.


The Statement, launched on Safer Internet Day, pledges to provide on-demand viewers with a range of protections and to make on-demand programmes available in a way that supports the child protection tools provided by platforms. Signatories include many of the major on-demand services in the UK and the Statement covers their on-demand services that are accessed through a television.

* The Statement includes a commitment to the highest possible standards in on-demand programmes, comparable to those on broadcast television channels.

* It also commits to supporting television platforms in providing the most robust possible types of protection for on-demand catch-up services, such as pin control mechanisms.

* Finally, signatories commit to provide audiences with information about the age suitability of on-demand programmes, so they can make informed choices about the type of content they and their children watch.

Commenting on the Statement of Practice, Ed Vaizey, Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, said:

"Government challenged the industry to find a voluntary and common approach to television content standards, and it is great to see how COBA members are promoting better protection for children, including using pin control settings. Arming parents with details about on-demand television services will help families make more informed decisions about the suitability of programmes."

Tony Close, Ofcom Director of Content Standards, said:

"This industry agreement is a positive and welcome step towards greater protection of children who watch on-demand TV services. Broadcasters play a vital role in ensuring parents have clear information, along with the tools and controls they need to manage their children's access to TV programmes. Ofcom will continue to work closely with industry, Government and other bodies to help protect child audiences."

Adam Minns, Executive Director of COBA, said:

"COBA's Statement of Practice for Video-on-Demand unites many of the most popular on-demand services in the UK for the first time, providing audiences with a clear set of commitments to providing the best possible child protection."

Viacom and Snapchat Launch Unprecedented Global Partnership

Original Viacom Inc. Press Release via Business Wire:

Viacom and Snapchat Launch Unprecedented Global Partnership

Wide-ranging Agreement to Boost Premium Video on Snapchat Discover With Two New Viacom Produced Channels

Viacom Granted Broader Rights to Sell Ads in its Own Snapchat Content, as well as Snapchat's U.S. Owned and Operated Ad Inventory

Snapchat to Increase Production of Live Stories Tied to Viacom's High Profile Awards Shows, Including MTV's Video Music Awards and EMAs, BET Experience, and More

February 09, 2016 06:30 AM Eastern Standard Time

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB, VIA) and Snapchat today announced an unprecedented global partnership that capitalizes on and extends the unique expertise of both companies to creatively and authentically speak to millennial and post-millennial audiences.


The wide-ranging deal, anchored in both content production and advertising sales, will bring two high profile channels to Snapchat Discover -- a Comedy Central International channel and an MTV Channel in the U.S., which will complement the already successful Comedy Central and MTV International Discover channels. The agreement also grants Viacom the right to sell Snapchat's U.S. owned and operated advertising inventory, allowing Viacom to offer even more value to television advertisers who want to add Snapchat's wildly popular premium video platform to the media mix. In addition, Viacom also has agreed to provide Snapchat with expanded access so Snapchat can produce Live Stories covering more of Viacom's tent pole events.

"Viacom and Snapchat naturally complement each other in significant ways that make us ideal partners in both content and business development," said Wade Davis, Chief Financial Officer, Viacom. "Snapchat captures young audiences on an intimate and immersive mobile video platform while Viacom is the leader in premium long- and short-form storytelling for these same audiences. Add in Viacom's custom marketing solutions and commitment to evolve our global mobile strategy and you've got a partnership that is great for both companies, for advertisers, and is a real evolution of the marketplace."

In addition to selling its advertising alongside its own content on Snapchat Discover, Viacom will now also have the right to sell Snapchat's U.S. owned and operated ad inventory, which includes ads in ongoing Stories such as "New York," capturing daily happenings in New York City, and non-partnered holiday Live Stories, such as "Valentine's Day." Viacom is the only television company to have this arrangement with Snapchat.

"Snapchat provides the best storytelling experience on mobile. Through this partnership with Viacom, we can now offer television advertisers a way to tell their stories across television and mobile in a frictionless way," said Imran Khan, Snapchat's Chief Strategy Officer.

On the content side of the deal, Viacom will further invest in the creation of original premium video content specifically for Snapchat Discover, reinforcing Viacom's innovative approach and dedication to delivering fans globally the content they want wherever they want to consume it. While MTV International and Comedy Central have previously been committed to creating original content on Discover, additional resources will now be put towards the launch of an MTV US Channel and a Comedy Central International channel on the platform.

MTV's new Snapchat Discover channel will feature a wide range of content created exclusively for the platform and updated daily. At launch on Tuesday, February 9, this includes MTV News articles and video with design and art direction unique to Snapchat, exclusive celebrity interviews, and more. MTV is also developing additional Snapchat-native content, including brand-new original series and reinvented MTV fan-favorite franchises for the platform. More details on original programming will be announced at a later date.

Comedy Central will launch internationally on Snapchat Discover on Wednesday, February 10, delivering always funny content to fans globally. The new international channel will serve Snapchat users daily doses of comedy, from curated "WTF News" articles and exclusive videos with their favorite comedians to upcoming original series set to debut on Snapchat Discover in the coming year. Since its U.S. launch in January 2015, the Comedy Central channel on Snapchat Discover has become a vibrant pipeline for Comedy Central to develop fresh comedic voices and original content. It is one of the most popular brands on the platform.

Another key element of the Viacom/Snapchat partnership will leverage Snapchat's Live Stories, which are curated collections of user-submitted content covering major events and places around the world. Through the partnership, Snapchat will have unique access to cover Viacom's one-of-a-kind, tentpole events, such as MTV's Video Music Awards (VMAs), BET Experience, and MTV's EMAs.

The deal grew organically out of a dynamic Viacom/Snapchat relationship, including many custom advertising campaigns created by in-house creative agency Viacom Velocity that ran in Snapchat Discover, as well as "break-the-internet" level of fan engagement for Viacom events covered by Snapchat Live Stories and Snapchat Discover channels launched a year ago.

Viacom Reports Results for Q1 2016

Viacom Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAB, VIA), the parent company of the Nickelodeon brand, has today, Tuesday 9th February 2016, reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 ended Thursday 31st December 2015.


Philippe Dauman, Executive Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Viacom, said, "As the media industry continues to evolve quickly, Viacom is generating sustainable opportunities using great new content, innovative technology, marketing and data applications, along with the benefits of our substantial footprint in key international growth markets. Our investments in new content have led to higher ratings at most of our networks, including VH1, Spike, BET, TV Land, CMT and Nick at Nite, as well as Nickelodeon, which recaptured its lead as the top network for kids 2 to 11. In addition, we saw significant sequential improvement in domestic advertising sales, due to the success of our new programming and our highly-desirable new advertising products. Paramount is off to a strong start in 2016, with a promising and diverse film lineup throughout the year, and our Paramount Television unit is also thriving.


Most of Viacom's major networks have seen year-over-year ratings improvement. (source: Nielsen)

"2015 was a challenging year operationally as we redesigned ourselves and adapted to significant industry disruption. Our first fiscal quarter of 2016 reflected these challenges. However, our revitalized organization and our investments in content, technology and strategic innovation are now beginning to bear fruit. Although our industry continues to face headwinds, we expect our positive momentum to continue and build throughout the year."


Quarterly revenues declined 6% to $3.15 billion. Media Networks revenues declined 3% to $2.57 billion. Absent an unfavorable 1% impact of foreign exchange, Media Networks revenues decreased 2%. Domestic advertising revenues declined 4%, as pricing increases were more than offset by a decline in traditional ratings at some of Viacom's networks. Worldwide advertising revenues decreased 3%, reflecting an unfavorable 1% impact of foreign exchange. International advertising revenues declined 2%, driven by an 8% adverse effect of foreign exchange. Absent the impact of foreign exchange, international advertising revenues increased 6%, driven principally by growth in Europe. Domestic affiliate revenues were substantially flat due to the impact from the timing of product available under certain distribution agreements. International affiliate revenues decreased 6%, driven by a 9% unfavorable impact of foreign exchange. Absent the impact of foreign exchange, international affiliate revenues increased 3%.


Filmed Entertainment revenues decreased by 15% to $612 million, as an increase in license fees was more than offset by declines in theatrical and home entertainment revenues. Excluding foreign exchange, which had a 3% unfavorable impact, worldwide revenues declined 12%. Worldwide theatrical revenues decreased $75 million in the quarter, as carryover revenues decreased $46 million, principally due to an unfavorable comparison with the strong performance of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the first fiscal quarter of 2015. Worldwide home entertainment revenues decreased $77 million in the quarter, primarily reflecting a comparison with carryover revenues from Transformers: Age of Extinction in the first quarter of 2015. License fees increased 25%, to $237 million in the quarter, primarily driven by the licensing of certain titles for subscription video-on-demand services and television.


Quarterly adjusted operating income declined 13% to $839 million, primarily driven by the timing and mix of current quarter Filmed Entertainment releases, as well as lower contributions from films in release across post-theatrical distribution windows. Media Networks adjusted operating income declined 4% to $1.06 billion, driven by the decline in revenues, partially offset by decreased expenses. Absent a 1% adverse impact of foreign exchange, Media Networks adjusted operating income declined 3%. Filmed Entertainment reported an adjusted operating loss of $146 million for the quarter, compared with an operating loss of $60 million in the previous year's quarter.

Quarterly adjusted net earnings attributable to Viacom declined to $470 million. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter decreased 9% to $1.18. Foreign exchange had an unfavorable $0.02 impact on adjusted diluted EPS.

Debt

At December 31, 2015, total debt outstanding was $12.57 billion, compared with $12.29 billion at September 30, 2015. The Company's cash balances were $327 million at December 31, 2015, a decrease from $506 million at September 30, 2015.

Shout! Factory to Release "Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir" on Home Video in North America

North American video distributor Shout! Factory announced the super news on Monday that it has entered a distribution agreement with entertainment group Zag to release Zag's Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir series in the United States and Canada, Anime News Network reports! The rights include DVD, Blu-ray, and select digital outlets. Shout! Factory plans to begin releasing the series in 2016.


The 3D CG Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir series debuted in South Korea in September 2015, before premiering in the United States on Nickelodeon on December 6. The series is also airing in France and Australia, and will premiere in Canada, New Zealand, EMEA, Latin America, Italy, Brazil, Belgium, Switzerland, and Lithuania.

The 26-episode series follows two junior high students, Marinette and Adrien, chosen to save Paris from the evil doings of a mysterious super-villain. The storylines and adventures are rich with friends, family, fun, secret identity, transformation, villains, fashion, creativity and more, all within the spectacular backdrop of Paris.

As secret identity superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir, Marinette and Adrien must balance the crazy antics of normal teen life while stopping weekly baddies deployed by Hawk Moth to steal their powers and take over the world. With the help of their magical kwami, Tikki and Plagg, and miraculous jewels, the duo transform into their alter egos, Ladybug and Cat Noir, and are granted powers of speed, strength, agility and a clear mind.


The series is a co-production between Zag, Method Animation, Toei Animation, and SamG, with the participation of TF1, Disney Channel EMEA, SK Broadband, and AB droits audiovisuels.

Zag Entertainment, Toei Animation, and Method Animation co-produced a 2D-animated promotional video for the project announcement before relaunching it as a CG-animated series. Zag and Toei Animation are co-producing a 2D-animated OVA for the series, though it will include Cat Noir's design from the 3D CG-animated series, not the older design used in the promotional video.

Bandai America will unveil its brand-new Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir toy line at the 2016 North American International Toy Fair.

Targeted to girls ages 4-8, the Miraculous toy line will feature a robust assortment of toys centered on aspirational action play, transformation and friendship, including action dolls for girls, transformational role play, plush pets and fashion dolls, guaranteed to bring the Miraculouys Ladybug brand to life. The range is set to launch this Fall/Autumn at mass and specialty retailers across the world.

Brand-new episodes of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir premiere every Sunday at 12:00pm ET/PT on Nick USA.
