SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2013) - ZeptoLab UK Limited, developers of the award-winning game Cut the Rope®, today announced that they have signed with two new agents to expand licensing and merchandising for the Cut the Rope brand in Latin America. Televisa Consumer Products, part of the largest media company in the Spanish-speaking world, will represent the Cut the Rope franchise in Mexico across the realms of digital entertainment, television and merchandising. Exim Licensing Group, one of the largest independent licensing agencies in the Latin American market, will represent ZeptoLab in Brazil and the rest of Latin America.
ZeptoLab's expansion into Latin American licensing and merchandising follows the success of their program in the U.S., Canada and the E.U., which kicked off in 2012 and extends across a broad range of categories including toys, games and activities, apparel, accessories and an animated web series. ZeptoLab is also developing a live-action, game show television series in collaboration with Sony Pictures Television.
"Cut the Rope is an international hit and our little green monster, Om Nom, is beloved worldwide," said Tanya Haider, ZeptoLab Head of Merchandising and Licensing and former SVP International Consumer Products at Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products. "By extending our licensing and merchandising program into Latin America, we are bringing Om Nom to life for more of our fans and expanding the Cut the Rope franchise into emerging markets around the world."
