Sony picks Nickelodeon kidvids

Dolphin to produce the six made-fors

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group has scooped up homevideo rights to six Nickelodeon made-fors.

Dolphin Entertainment, which produces Nick skein “Zoey 101,” is producing all six. Each will bow on the channel before arriving on store shelves under the Sony Wonder label, which was operated until recently by sister music unit Sony BMG.

“Shredderman Rules!” and “Last Day of Summer” bow first on Aug. 28, followed by “Roxy Hunter and the Mystery of the Moody Ghost” and “Roxy Hunter and the Secret of the Shaman.” Latter two tie in to a skein making its debut on the channel this fall.

“Shredderman,” starring Tim Meadows and Dave Coulier, revolves around a high school student working to expose a bully. In “Last Day of Summer,” starring Jansen Panettiere, a youngster repeatedly relives the last day of freedom before school starts. “Shredderman” aired on Nick on June 9, and “Last Day of Summer” will air on the channel on July 20.

Sony’s homevideo arm is ramping up family fare and kidvid for the Sony Wonder label — its first dedicated children’s brand.

The studio’s worldwide acquisition group has been on a buying binge lately, having picked up several pics at Cannes and several others earlier at Sundance. Prexy Peter Schlessel plans to acquire more than 100 films in 2007, the acquisition group’s first year as a division under the studio.
