DHX Media, a leading global children’s content and brands company, is spreading the global reach of its original series, Massive Monster Mayhem, with five additional broadcasters signed for season one, including Lagardère’s Gulli TV and Canal J in France, TVE’s Clan in Spain, CiTV in the UK and ABC in Australia. Massive Monster Mayhem is expected to roll out in these territories beginning April 2018. Produced by DHX Media, Massive Monster Mayhem is co-created by Artur Spigel and Michael Chaves.
“This series brings together so many things that kids love – crazy competitions, hilarious stunts, wild special effects and of course, space alien monsters who want to take over Earth,” said Josh Scherba, President, DHX Media.
The new broadcast agreements build on the global momentum for Massive Monster Mayhem, which launched on Nicktoons in the US and Family Channel in Canada last fall (with new episodes premiering this summer).
This winter, DHX Media also announced a global broadcast deal for more than 140 territories with Nickelodeon International and a multi-territory toy deal with Alpha Group for the brand.
“Building on our strategy to engage kids with entertaining content and exciting toys, Massive Monster Mayhem unleashes the sort of unbridled energy and imaginative fun that kids crave. There’s no surprise that broadcasters continue to jump on board to help spread the mayhem.”
Massive Monster Mayhem is an original show for kids 6–11 that combines live action and CGI animation with real competition and comedy. Each episode features three real-life kid heroes competing in a gauntlet of Intergalactic Battle Alliance challenges to become Earth’s champion and face off against Master Mayhem’s league of monsters in the ultimate “Monster Mashdown.” The unique series combines cutting-edge, real-time CGI and pre-visualization technology.
Global distribution for Massive Monster Mayhem is handled by DHX Media. The consumer products licensing for Massive Monster Mayhem is managed by DHX Brands, with Alpha Group as global toy licensee (excluding Asia).
