Rolling With the New Normal

Mercury

On the heels of app-based hits like Angry Birds, it's become pretty clear that TV isn't the only platform capable of driving a kids property to licensing & merchandising success. In fact, kids don't categorize content into buckets like TV, film and apps at all—they don't care where a character comes from, as long as it's lovable and engaging. Has this new multiplatform consumer products universe left IP owners flailing, or are they rising to the challenge? We'll talk with leading entertainment licensors to find out how they're navigating the new normal.

So we're bringing in one of the industry's most respected animated comedy wizards to show you how it's done.
