Alphanim Inks DreamWorks Deal, Rebrands

Kids' show producer renamed Gaumont Animation

PARIS — In the run-up to MipTV, Gaumont-owned Alphanim, a leading kids’ show producer in Europe, has been rebranded as Gaumont Animation, and has closed a co-development/co-production deal with DreamWorks Classic and French pubcaster France Televisions on “Noddy,” a 3D CGI animated series based on the character created by British author Enid Blyton in 1949.

Deal was unveiled Monday by Pierre Belaisch, managing director of Gaumont Animation, and Christophe Riandee, Gaumont’s vice CEO.

“This is an exciting time for Gaumont Animation as we expand our development efforts to include both original content, such as ‘Dude That’s My Ghost’ which was recently delivered to Disney XD, and classic properties, such as ‘Calimero’ and now ‘Noddy’ with France Televisions and DreamWorks Classics,” Belaisch said. “I am confident that with our new strategic game plan, new shows and a new name we are moving into a very rewarding period for our company. As we continue to gain international prominence, we will continue to refine our goals while always providing world-class programming for an ever-growing global audience.”

Gaumont is the Paris-headquartered studio behind Golden Globe-nominated blockbuster “The Intouchables.” Shingle’s L.A.-based subsid, Gaumont International Television, launched in 2011 and already boasts an attractive slate, including Netflix’s Gothic thriller “Hemlock Grove,” which is set to world preem at MipTV with exec producer Eli Roth and star Famke Janssen in attendance.

“With the renaming of Alphanim to Gaumont Animation, and the creation of Gaumont International Television in 2011, we are delighted to be recognized as an independent studio with a unique vision for expansion into the television and animation arenas, along with our continued growth and overall success in the movie business,” commented Riandee.
