Lionsgate and Hasbro are partnering to bring Monopoly to the big screen. The film version has been described as centering on a boy from Baltic Avenue who uses both Chance and Community in a quest to make his fortune, taking him on a fun, adventure-filled journey.
In the Night Garden, a BBC Worldwide and Ragdoll Worldwide, Ltd. joint venture, will be premiering in the U.S. this fall on the new children’s network, The Hub. Starting this October, kids can join Igglepiggle and Upsy Daisy on their adventures with Makka Pakka and friends. The Hub has secured broadcasting rights for all 100 x 30 episodes of In the Night Garden.
Produced by Ragdoll Productions for Ragdoll Worldwide, In the Night Garden takes kids on an imaginative journey to meet toy characters living together within a caring woodland community. Shot in high-definition, words, rhymes, and music make the series both entertaining and relaxing.
