Toons, stock bring rise to company

On the heels of the recent Mipcom TV trade show in Cannes, L.A.-based indie kids distrib DIC has unveiled a bundle of foreign deals for its latest series, “Trollz” and “Strawberry Shortcake.”

The first season of “Trollz” airs around the world on Nickelodeon (69 territories) and on terrestrial channels such as TF1 (France) and CBBC (U.K.). Total number of foreign licensees is now 93.
