Hit strikes Aardman deal

Hit Entertainment has inked a deal with Aardman Animations to license its key properties, including Shaun the Sheep, in North America.

Hit will manage licensing and home entertainment rights for Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and Aardman Classics in the United States and Canada.

Shaun the Sheep, which is aimed at 5-to-10-year-olds, debuted on the Disney Channel in the US last month, while there is a new Wallace & Gromit feature project lined up to launch at the end of 2008.
