ABC Commercial has reached a new agreement with free-to-air television network TVNZ to bring a variety of The Wiggles’ pre-school programming to New Zealand.
The agreement will see The Wiggles’ brand new television series Emma! series 2 receive a linear broadcast on TVNZ later this year, in addition to a number of standalone specials from the group, including Dial E For Emma!, The Wiggles Meet the Orchestra, Apples and Bananas and The Emma and Lachy Show! – with all programmes available to stream on TVNZ’s AVOD platform TVNZ OnDemand.
The Wiggles’ popularity in New Zealand has grown rapidly since the group relaunched with their new look line up of Emma, Lachy, Simon and Anthony in 2013. Since then, The Wiggles have embarked on numerous tours throughout New Zealand, entertaining families at sold out shows across Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and more – with ticket sales continuing to climb with each successive visit.
“ABC Commercial is pleased to partner with TVNZ to bring The Wiggles’ award-winning programming to New Zealand families everywhere,” said Jessica Ellis, head of content sales & distribution at ABC Commercial. “We’re excited for what the future holds for The Wiggles in the territory.”
