ZAG inked some new deals to bring the first two seasons of Power Players to an even bigger audience around the globe.
Additionally, ZAG secured broadcast deals with Channel 9 in Australia, PlusPlus in Ukraine, Karusel in Russia, and Canada’s Teletoon. The newly added partners join a robust lineup of cable and satellite TV providers showing Power Players including Cartoon Network U.S., EMEA, and Asia Pacific; France’s France Télévisions; WDR in Germany; Goob in Brazil; and Discovery Latin America.
“We are extremely proud of this new original creation that we developed alongside Man of Action, Cartoon Network, FTV, and Playmates Toys,” says Jeremy Zag, CEO of ZAG.
Power Players uses CGI-hybrid animation to tell the story of Axel, a 9-year-old boy who transforms into a living 6-inch superhero action figure, and his unlikely team of toy heroes created by his uncle — a former toy inventor that owns a toy repair shop.
At Toy Fair New York, Playmates Toys showcased its expanded toy line that features a range of 5-inch action figures and vehicles, 9-inch deluxe electronic action figures, vehicles, and roleplay gear. Playmates recently entered into a long-term agreement with ZAG to release toys based on the company’s other properties including Miraculous – Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir and the forthcoming Ghostforce.
