Burbank, CA – September 9, 2009 – – Strengthening its multi-platform content development strategy, Lincoln Butterfield Animation has just completed an exclusive licensing agent agreement with Dimensional Branding, Group LLC (DBG). Under the terms of the agreement, DBG will start by representing Lincoln Butterfield’s N.I.T.: Neighborhood Investigation Team animated TV property for development into consumer products, such as toys, games and apparel. Other projects will be announced.

“N.I.T. is a well developed property that definitely fits the demographics for a successful licensing program,” said John Leonhardt, President of DGB. “And with the talented team of Lincoln Butterfield behind it, we knew we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to help create natural extensions for such a fun ‘tween brand.” DBG specializes in multi-dimensional and brand extension programs for iconic games, toys and characters. The licensing agency fuses marketing research, promotional expertise and fresh ideas to create high-impact programs that bring together the right people and brands. DBG’s clients include such iconic names as PlayStation, Jenga, Skee-Ball, MoMA Modern Kids and Kindermusik, among many others.

“As we have developed our animated television concepts, we’ve also evaluated each property to determine how to best launch it into the marketplace,” said Joseph Walker, Lincoln Butterfield Co-Founder. “It is gratifying that DBG has recognized the potential strength of N.I.T. across an array of product categories, and we look forward to working with them to make that a reality.” Lincoln Butterfield retains all rights to TV, Film, Internet and Motion Comics, and has a first right of refusal on graphic novels, comics and other books based on the properties. Lincoln Butterfield’s growing catalogue of animation properties includes the ‘tween properties RIP M.D., TAN and N.I.T.: Neighborhood Investigation Team, and mature titles Venture Probe and When in Rome. N.I.T.: Neighborhood Investigation Team is one of several Lincoln Butterfield titles to be presented at MIPCOM next month.
