Los Angeles, CA / Rome, Italy, June 8, 2016 – Lawless Entertainment is thrilled to announce their appointment as broadcast (to include TV, digital, DVD, etc.) and licensing and merchandising representatives in the United States for Mondo TV’s Sissi, the Young Empress and The Drakers.
Lawless Entertainment will handle licensing and merchandising for Sissi, the Young Empress, which is targeted to girls age 4-8 as well as placement of the animated series on various broadcast outlets including television, digital, DVD, and more. Sissi is one of the historical figures who most impressed the popular imagination, especially the female target. Novels, films, and TV dramas have brought back the life of Elisabeth of Wittelsbach that everyone keeps on calling Sissi. Mondo TV continues celebrating the legend of Sissi with the brand new animated TV series Sissi, the Young Empress made up of one season of 26 eps x 26. Second season (26 eps x 26) is currently under production.
The story of the young empress Sissi is a mix of adventure, love and intrigue. Not only is there romance and court life, but also magic and mystery – Sissi will find out how a magic bracelet allows her to live exciting adventures and help her pet friends in danger…but there is more! Sissi will also need to solve a mystery surrounding the bracelet – someone is trying to steal it!
The Sissi, the Young Empress animated series is currently airing throughout Europe, Middle East and Asia in over 30 countries. Master toy licensee, Grandi Giochi launched a toy line in late 2015 that includes fashion dolls, make up toys, interactive plush and playsets. Italian publisher il Sole di Carta is issuing bi-monthly Official Magazine and Coloring book in Italy.
Lawless Entertainment will also handle licensing and merchandising for The Drakers, targeted to boys age 4-8, as well as placement of the animated series on various outlets including television, digital, DVD and more. THE DRAKERS is an innovative and exciting animated series dedicated to diffuse the passion for motor racings and competition to the youngest. The adventures of two young boys, CHRIS BRAVO and FABRI MORELLI – from The Drakers team, will be narrated to tell their destiny to succeed in the FORMULA X WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP.
The Drakers’ animated series is currently airing throughout Europe, Africa, Australia, and Middle East. Master toy licensee MacDue Toys & Games launched the toy line based on the series, which includes remote control cars, watches, and more, at the end of 2015.
“We are excited to have Lawless Entertainment on board,” says Matteo Corradi, CEO of Mondo TV. “Sissi and Drakes are two important properties in our catalogue and we believe that thanks to this great partnership American children will love them”.
“We are ecstatic to work with Mondo TV on these two tremendous properties,” says Cathy Malatesta, President of Lawless Entertainment. “We can’t wait to introduce the American children to Sissi, the Young Empress and The Drakers.”
