"The pups have truly cemented themselves as a evergreen franchise," enthuses Marianne James, vp of Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products UK, Northern & Eastern Europe. "We continue to partner with Spin Master to introduce fresh new content themes and product ranges for fans. For spring 2020, a feature-length special episode - PAW Patrol: Ready, Race, Rescue - will be released in cinemas nationwide to bring further product opportunities.

From the October 2019 issue of Toy World Magazine:

Nick be nimble

Toy World spoke to Marianne James, VP, Consumer Products, Commercial Partnerships & Experiences, UK, Northern & Eastern Europe about what the current Nickelodeon portfolio has to offer licensee and retailer partners.

How has 2019 been for Nickelodeon?

This year has seen continued change and newness for the brand, as we launched new TV series with Butterbean’s Café and Abby Hatcher, as well as new consumer products with Top Wing and Sunny Day. Paw Patrol has seen a broader expansion of its franchise into multiple touchpoints, including its first UK cinema outing with the hugely successful Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups. The showing beat its target of £1.5m, which we're now looking to build on with the next theatrical release, Paw Patrol: Ready Race Rescue, in February 2020. Looking forward, we're very excited about representing Ryan's World and Ryan's Mystery Playdate, as we head towards the New Year.

What have been your standout successes so far this year?

This year, we celebrated six years of Paw Patrol. We're delighted that the property remains the No.1 pre-school license, driven in part by our refreshed themes and content. We also launched Top Wing across our free to air Channel 5 network, with an incredible monthly average reach of over 600,000 kids. Top Wing has also seen an extremely successful launch by our master toy partner Hasbro, along with apparel and publishing.

How have you found the retail landscape for licensed products over the past nine months?

It would be remiss to say it's challenging. However, with challenge comes opportunity. Remaining nimble and offering a variety of promotional and marketing solutions with multiple touchpoints is a key contributor to success.

With latest NPD figures showing a decline in licensed toy sales for the fourth consecutive year (YoY), what can Nickelodeon and its partners do to ensure demand for product remains high?

For the right brands, there is still a great opportunity to grow great sales value. We believe that Ryan's World is a great example of this; a content creator who is achieving fantastic viewership online, and is now expanding in to the consumer products arena, with initial results proving very successful. We are excited about the opportunity to grow into new categories in the near future, epitomising our current strategy of establishing multiple consumer product pipelines to ensure that the Nickelodeon brand thrives across 'Every Age, Every Aisle, Everywhere.'

What big properties are you most excited about for 2020?

We expect movies to explode again in 2020. The return of the Top Gun franchise with Top Gun: Maverick by Paramount Pictures will likely prove to be one of the biggest hits of 2020, while we have a number of other new movies to energise the market, including the return of SpongeBob in this 3rd feature length film. We're also excited to introduce Rumble - a new animated monster wrestling movie from Paramount - set to be released in 2020.

What makes Nickelodeon a great partner for licensees?

We have a hugely passionate licensing team who is flexible, approachable and creative - there's always a way to achieve creativity and success. Our flexibility and experience are critical components to our success. It's what sets us apart and ensures we sustain long term partnerships in the industry, with a solutions-focused approach.

Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products (VNCP) will showcase its animation, pre-school, youth and adult licences at this year's Brand Licensing Europe, reinforcing its 'Every Age, Every Aisle, Everywhere' strategy. Iconic franchises like SpongeBob SquarePants, Paw Patrol and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be display alongside new IP acquisitions including Garfield and Ryan's Mystery Playdate.

Nickelodeon's mission is to be the home for the biggest franchises kids love. Consumer favourite SpongeBob SquarePants - celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year - continues to be a leading license, and recently announced spin-off Kamp Koral will grow the franchise further new new stories and characters introduced to the SpongeBob universe.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise has continued to expand and entertain audiences of all ages, old and new, with a mix of new content, consumer products and on-the-ground experiences to drive fan excitement as the crime-fighting turtles celebrate their 35th anniversary.

Continued investment in pre-school properties is led by Paw Patrol, with new content themes and storylines, characters and product categories being added every year, growing the franchise and its properties and building it into one of the company's biggest brands.

Nickelodeon has welcomed Blue's Clues & You! and Ryan's World/Ryan's Mystery Playdate to its pre-school portfolio, while the acquisition of Garfield has helped maintain Nickelodeon's position of the place to go for the most popular franchises in family entertainment.

The company expects movies to come to the forefront. The return of the Top Gun franchise with Top Gun: Maverick by Paramount Pictures will undoubtedly prove to be one of the biggest hits of 2020, while other new movies to energise the market include the return of SpongeBob in his third feature-length film - The SpongeBob Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge. Exciting new movie Rumble, Nickelodeon's new animated monster wrestling movie, is set to be released in 2020.

From Licensing Source:

“BLE is hugely important and a fantastic platform”

As the show opens its doors at ExCeL, Source asks some key licensors what BLE means to them.

Brand Licensing Europe 2019 officially opens its doors today, with the industry set to head over to the new venue of ExCeL London in their droves to check out the latest brands, trends and developments.

The event – which is marking its 21st anniversary this year and runs from October 1 to October 3 – is a key platform for licensors and agents, as a number exclusively told Source.

[...]

Meanwhile, Marianne James, vp of Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products UK, Northern and Eastern Europe, simply described the show as “the perfect forum”.

“BLE is a key time of the year for us, as it is attended by the European key players in the industry across licensing and retail,” commented Marianne. “Here, we have the perfect forum to present and provide greater insight into our key franchises and initiatives, as well as inform and update the market on the exciting plans we have for our many properties across Nickelodeon, Paramount, MTV and Comedy Central.”

From License Global:

WHAT’S #TRENDING AT BLE 2019?

While walking the BLE showfloor, attending seminars and talking to exhibitors, License Global picked up on key trends that are defining the way the licensing community does business.

Brand Licensing Europe took place this week (Oct. 1-3) at London’s ExCeL. While walking the show, attending seminars and talking to exhibitors, License Global picked up on key trends that are defining the way the licensing community does business.

Fashion has a Sustainable Future

Fashion, the core theme of BLE 2020, was teased everywhere at this year’s ExCeL debut. Mannequins featuring some of the most progressive collaborations – from retail appeal to haute-couture design – lined the show, and the discussion of fashion’s place in licensing is just as apparent.

“Fashion licensing is at an interesting place right now,” says Anna Knight, vice president, licensing, Informa Markets, the organizer of BLE. “There’s so much going on, from sustainability discussions to haute couture collaborations. It’s providing a new way to open up brands and we want to shine a light on that, show how experiential it has been and how it links back to brands, lifestyle and art. Fashion and licensing is Zeitgeist-led, it’s visual, on-trend, inclusive and ticks all of our boxes for BLE 2020.”

With carefully considered collaborations showing no sign of slowing down, this also comes with the conversation of how these pieces are created in the future. Sustainably sourced materials and ethical collaborations are making noise (such as Tiger Tim’s partnership launch with Cotton Made in Africa, announced at BLE), and as fast fashion retail experiences stressors (think the recent Chapter 11 filing for Forever 21), this new balance could signal from consumers a sea change in how they allocate their spending.

Heritage Licensing Becomes an Export

U.K. heritage licensing has gone from small, niche gifting products to carefully curated consumer products in demand across the globe. These brands are now known for licensing artistic and educational archives with genuine authenticity, and the latest revolutions on display at the Heritage x Interiors activation stands are a testament to the work underway in new verticals.

U.K. heritage licensing has become an export, making its way to new markets such as China. The V&A is one such brand leading the way in new territories.

“It’s been a year of success and growth in China for V&A brand licensing who have been working with their exclusive agent in the country, Alfilo Brands, to push forward ambitious plans for licensing, retail collaborations and pop-up stores,” says Lauren Sizeland, head, business and licensing development, V&A. “In the last year, the V&A has grown the number of licensees within East Asia by 15 percent. Recent collaborations include a range of luxury luggage from ITO, inspired by 1920s art deco travel posters; three collections from lifestyle retail store The Beast, including The Modern Times range featuring mugs, candles, diffusers and prints, and the Beauty in Bloom range with silk pajamas and scarves; arts-and-crafts-themed tea giftsets with Twinings; and a shoe collection with Basto, who reworked the V&A archive of travel posters and Japanese Ukiyo-e prints into an exceptional footwear collection.”

This push into China with intricately designed projects is also leading the V&A to learn more about the consumer tastes of the region to increase their focus and develop new products.

Big Brands are Getting Better with Age

Major milestone anniversaries are being celebrated across the show floor, with Hasbro bringing the long-lasting brand of Monopoly to the people in special editions for its 85th, Batman marking his 80th across the year with global projects and gaming icons Activision and “Pac-Man” continuing to grow at 40.

“Thomas & Friends” is also marking its 75th, and as brands mark more milestones, the consumer products are starting to reflect not only decades of growth, but a future of creativity in terms of product design.

Rovio’s 10th anniversary brought forward a new collaboration with K-Swiss, for example, that takes the color and the mischief of the mobile game and brings it straight back to the personality-driven consumer market.

Publishing is having a moment too as classic continues to stay in style. Peter Rabbit continues to display innovative licensing programs, while Horrible Histories matures into a retro property as author Terry Deary gave us his insight into the property at BLE’s publishing activation, Beyond the Book.

The Players have Spoken

Gaming continues to grow as esports, multiplayer and narrative-driven content experiences keep us coming back to our consoles. The list of exhibitors on display at BLE 2019, from Playstation and Nintendo to Ubisoft, Activision Blizzard, Sybo Games and Rovio, means the gaming industry investment in licensing is real, and as the gaming culture continues to grow, so will the business opportunities.

A central highlight of BLE was The Arcade, a gaming and esports activation that celebrated gaming history and allowed visitors to interact and engage with properties and product from participating brands such Rovio, Sega, Difuzed, Bandai Namco, Disguise, Activision, Bioworld and Sybo.

Long Live the Movie Franchise

If there’s one trend to re-appear year-on-year, it’s the long-lasting appeal of sequels, reboots and title returns. With “Trolls: World Tour” and “Minions 2” being presented with pride by Universal, or “Wonder Woman: 1984” by Warner Bros., “Top Gun: Maverick” by Viacom Nickelodeon and “Ghostbusters” by Sony Pictures, the consumers are driving huge demand to see the characters they love again and again and that there is guaranteed pick-up at retail for such properties.

“We no longer license movies, we actively build licensed franchises and sequels as an integral part of our content strategy,” says Hannah Mungo, country director, U.K. and Eire, Universal Brand Development. “They allow us to introduce new characters, themes and music and they provide an event moment for retailers and licensees to build new and refreshed programs around. In a world of disruption and fragmentation, consumers are looking for strong and stable brands that they know and trust, sequels answer this brief by affording fans the opportunity to build deeper and more meaningful connections with our properties.”

“Franchises such as ‘Ghostbusters’ have a built-in audience that grow from generation to generation,” explains Jamie Stevens, executive vice president, worldwide consumer products, Sony Pictures Entertainment. “For licensing, it gives us the opportunity to provide products that feed the super fans as well as new consumers who are entering the franchise for the first time.”

“Retailers are placing big bets on movie franchises, and Paramount Pictures’ ‘Top Gun Maverick’ and ‘The SpongeBob Movie’ are two great examples,” says Mark Kingston, senior vice president, Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products. “These franchises have strong emotional connections with generations of fans, and retailers know that the appetite for special-edition product will be strong. Movie releases also give a nice boost for our everyday ‘Spongebob’ and ‘Top Gun’ business.”

From C21 Media:

Viacom adventures

Viacom is undergoing rapid change with the arrival of ITV Studios exec Maria Kyriacou, a merger with CBS on the cards and a distribution slate that continues to diversify. Nico Franks reports.

Trevor McDonald’s Indian Train Adventure features the iconic UK newsreader

Think of brands associated with Viacom and you’re likely to picture bright animated shows and children’s sitcoms thanks to its links with Nickelodeon, or scantily clad reality show contestants due to its ties with MTV.

What you’re unlikely to imagine is one of the UK’s most revered newsreader and journalists travelling from Mumbai to Delhi on board the Maharajas’ Express, as seen in Trevor McDonald’s Indian Train Adventure (2×60′).

“That is one of the great things about our catalogue,” says Lauren Marriott, VP of international programme sales at Viacom International Studios (VIS). “It’s so diverse, you can have Ex on the Beach and young preschool content on the one hand and Trevor McDonald on a train in India on the other.”

Due to various developments, both domestically and internationally, that are seeing it work with non-Viacom-owned buyers, VIS will arguably be bringing its most wide-ranging catalogue of content ever to Mipcom this year.

Nickelodeon famously aims to reach kids from diapers all the way up to skinny jeans. Now, partly thanks to the many deals US media giant Viacom has been doing to diversify its business over the past few years, as well as a strategy to work with third-parties, VIS has a library that feasibly goes from skinny jeans all the way up to comfortable, elastic waist-banded slacks.

Testament to this is its Mipcom slate, which features Corn & Peg, a Nick Jr show about a seven-year-old unicorn and a pegasus; Gen Z thriller The Unsettling; MTV reality show The Hills: New Beginnings; and Trevor McDonald’s Indian Train Adventure.

The latter marked the first third-party commission for Viacom in the UK when it was ordered by commercial broadcaster ITV earlier this year, a development that means its catalogue is set to grow beyond shows for Viacom brands such as Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV and BET.

This comes as the Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) business in the UK and Europe undergoes significant change, with ITV Studios exec Maria Kyriacou coming in as president following the departure of James Currell earlier this year.

Kyriacou, who is currently president of international for ITV Studios, reports to David Lynn, president and CEO of VIMN. VIMN is seeking to bolster its activities in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, with VIS in the process of opening new production centres in Madrid and Manchester as part of its ongoing expansion. These join Viacom’s London-based production outfit Elephant House Studios, which has been rebranded as VIS UK.

This is part of VIMN’s wider strategy to leverage assets such as MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount, Telefe, Awesomeness and Pluto TV to build out a three-tier strategy spanning basic cable, SVoD and advertising-supported VoD (AVoD).

Jill Offman is leading the expansion of VIS in the UK and Laura Abril is heading the roll-out across Europe, building on the studio’s Latin American launch last year.

VIS’s diverse slate includes Nick Jr toon Corn & Peg

Marriott says the intention is for VIS to represent as much of the product made by VIS UK as possible, beginning with the aforementioned Trevor McDonald’s Indian Train Adventure.

The sales operation has also seen change, with long-time VIMN exec Caroline Beaton exiting as her career as a stand-up comedian takes off.

VIMN has a hefty reach, operating 120 TV networks, reaching 90 million households in 33 territories across the UK, Northern and Eastern Europe. It has launched a variety of streaming products across the region, including Paramount+ in the Nordic countries, Hungary and Poland as well as My5, Pluto TV and MTV Play in the UK.

VIS is the umbrella brand for all of Viacom’s content production and distribution activities outside of the US. The group also oversees the strategic acquisition of original content in VIMN’s core areas of kids, youth and adults, for sale to third parties around the world.

Free-to-air (FTA) broadcasters remain VIS’s key clients as a result of the way the company windows its content across its own channels and platforms, with originals airing first across VIMN’s operations, meaning premium SVoDs don’t tend to come calling for its finished product.

But Marriott says the company has still benefitted from the SVoD boom, which she believes has resulted in two major changes in the behaviour of buyers at broadcasters around the world.

Traditional buyers are looking to both compete and counter the streamers with some shows that play in the same territory they do – such as youth-skewing dramas – and the kind of factual series they tend not to be after.

“The traditional FTAs are trying to compete with SVoDs by acquiring solely for their AVoD or free VoD [FVoD] services,” says Marriott, who joined Viacom in 2008 as a sales director.

One recent example is the deal with the BBC in the UK, which has picked up seasons one and two of Emmy-winning series Zac & Mia in order to target what Viacom would call Generation Z, roughly those born between 1995 and 2015. Having bought youth-skewing US company Awesomeness last year and bringing its library into the fold six months ago, it’s a target demo VIS is now particularly geared towards.

Bought to support the public broadcaster’s strategy to diversifying its offering for older children, the show will be available exclusively via its FVoD service, BBC iPlayer.

Whereas previously they may have viewed 12-18s as something of a lost cause, broadcasters deciding to invest more in their VoD services have decided to try to claw them back from the likes of Netflix.

“VoD services of broadcasters targeting younger audiences is a definite trend, because obviously they’re not watching as much on linear,” says Marriott, who cites another Awesomeness show, Light As a Feather, as being popular with local VoD platforms. “They see it as really strong content to rival what Netflix is doing in that space,” adds the exec.

But then there’s the other strategy, where FTA networks zig where the likes Netflix are zagging.

“The emergence of the SVoDs has also meant shopping lists have become open to programming to counter them. Several years ago, you would have had the FTA channels buying up US dramas. Now that happens less and less, so there’s much more demand for self-contained factual entertainment content. That plays really well for our slate that we have from the UK,” says Marriott.

Essentially, this is programming people can watch while they’re doing other things, like cooking or ironing, which doesn’t require the same level of concentration that a foreign-language import or premium US drama does.

The latter is not something VIS deals in, with Viacom’s work in the genre coming via its rebranded cablenet Paramount, which commissioned originals such as Yellowstone, 68 Whiskey and Sexy Beast, and its studio arm, Paramount Pictures. Paramount Television has been behind high-end dramas such as Jack Ryan (Amazon), 13 Reasons Why (Netflix), Berlin Station (Epix), Catch-22 (Hulu), First Wives Club (Paramount Network), Shantaram (Apple) and Dream Team (BET).

Marriott also observes the AVoD platforms are stepping up to the plate in unscripted, following Netflix and Amazon’s lead into format acquisition, again with the aim of reeling in younger viewers.

VIS’s deal with German giant RTL Media Group’s TV Now platform is a case in point. It’s currently in production on the first remake of VIS reality dating format Finding Prince Charming and Marriott says deals for other youth-skewing reality formats in the VIS library are on the table.

VIS is also mining its back catalogue of IP to reimagine classic formats on both its networks and for new buyers, with Facebook Watch ordering a reboot of The Real World, for example. Also coming down the pipeline are new versions of Punk’d and Singled Out for Quibi, as Viacom’s fledgling units, such as MTV Studios, work with third-parties.

“It’s a really interesting new platform and definitely one to watch. We’ve always been trailblazers in coming up with new and exciting shows. And they’re still seen as new and exciting, even 25 years on,” says Marriott.

Meanwhile, the international TV industry’s consolidation continues, with the merger to form ViacomCBS ongoing, but Marriott is unable to comment on how it may impact VIS or VIMN in the short or long term.

What’s clear is that many of the changes currently underway at Viacom and VIMN are about trying to put VIS in a position to benefit from the many ways the global content business is evolving.

Double the Magic

You know some major fun is in store when a unicorn and a pegasus decide to hang out together. That’s what happens in Nelvana/Corus’ Corn & Peg, a fun CG-animated 20 x 22’ show that will be making the rounds at MIPCOM this month. Created by Russell Marcus (Brandy and Mr. Whiskers, Married with Children). Aimed at preschoolers, the show finds Corn and Peg working together to make their town of Galloping Grove a better place. The show focuses on a social-emotional curriculum that highlights empathy and kindness, and a school readiness curriculum emphasizing colors, math, directions and health and wellness.

“Corn & Peg is a feel-good show and we love seeing these two do-gooders gallop around their city to help their neighbors,” says Nina Hahn, Nickelodeon’s senior VP of development. “It is funny, smart and it brings in a really positive message to kids. We’re really happy to be bringing a second series soon to Nick Jr.”
