Technicolor and CPLG have tapped the publishing house to introduce new handbooks, coloring books and more based on the animated series.
GLOBAL–Technicolor Animation & Games has selected Bloomsbury Publishing to create a series of books based on its animated series “The Deep.”
CPLG, the brand’s licensing agent, brokered the deal.
The agreement will see Bloomsbury publish a range of books based on the “The Deep” including young fiction, official handbooks and activity books with new storylines not seen on the series.
“Bloomsbury Children’s Publishing is a global market leader, and we are excited that their passion for ‘The Deep’ will provide children worldwide with a diverse range of books, featuring the vivid world and characters they have grown to love,’ says Pam Kunick-Cohen, head, brand management, licensing and merchandising, Technicolor.
“The Deep” follows a family of underwater explorers as they journey around the world. The series’ second season is currently available around the world on platforms including CBBC in the U.K. and Netflix.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Technicolor to further expand the exciting world of ‘The Deep,’” says Zoe Griffiths, senior commissioning editor, Bloomsbury. “We were immediately drawn to the high-quality storytelling and the strong characterization within the series and are looking forward to offering new fans, as well as old, a part of ‘The Deep’ they have never seen before.”
