Vivendi gets N.A. rights to Krofft library

Distributor to release full-series sets, compilations in Q3

"We are excited to partner with one of the industry's leading digital- and home-entertainment distributors," Marty Krofft said.

Added Vivendi executive vp acquisitions Yolanda Macias: "The Krofft brothers have been capturing audience's imaginations for decades. Their characters are perennial."
