PorchLight brings 'Zoo' stateside


PorchLight Home Entertainment has acquired U.S. DVD rights to British kids TV program "64 Zoo Lane," which airs in the U.S. on Nick Jr.'s Noggin network for preschoolers.

The distribution deal with Millimages U.K. is part of an expanded branding campaign that includes the April 28 release of six books. PorchLight will jump into action three months later on July 29 when it gives the program its official U.S. DVD debut.
