Together, Hicks and Ward will spotlight Grom’s slate of IP and suite of animation production services offered through both its original storytelling division, Curiosity Ink Media, and Top Draw Animation, its 25-year-old Manila-based provider of premium animation production. The executives will be joined by various partners as together, they seek international distribution of their kid-first IP franchises intended to serve several key entertainment categories including theatrical-length films, recurring TV series, licensing, publishing, and several other potentially lucrative ancillary revenue drivers.
Among the offerings include:
● Santa.com – slated for global distribution (Fall, 2025), this upbeat and heartwarming original animated feature film reminds us all about the magic of Christmas.
● Hey Fuzzy Yellow! – curriculum-driven content, comedic cast of characters, and unconventional situational setups make this the perfect preschool series.
