Knightscove Media Corp. Announces Iconic Cat 'Heathcliff' Is Coming to KnightTV and Knightscove@Home

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 5, 2011) - Knightscove Media Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KC.A)(TSX VENTURE:KC.B) ("Knightscove") is pleased to announce that its television network KnightTV and its distribution arm, Knightscove@Home has secured the Canadian broadcast and home video market rights for the internationally recognized feline, Heathcliff the cat.

Knightscove is pleased to be working with Allen Bohbot of 41 Entertainment on Heathcliff's distribution in Canada.

Allen Bohbot, CEO of 41 Entertainment states "We chose Knightscove to handle all TV and home entertainment releases of this fabulous and iconic feline property in Canada due to their outstanding reputation and track record in the market, both French and English speaking. With a film adaptation out next year, the series in 2012 and a whole expansion of the property with irreverent comedy, we have high hopes for the new Heathcliff."

"Heathcliff is a well-recognized brand and a much beloved character who has entertained people around the world for decades. In an era when true DVD and broadcast viewing opportunities for the family are so limited, we believe Canadians will be thrilled that 'The Cat Came Back!' Heathcliff's adventuresome antics and cheeky attitude will prove both comedic and refreshingly appealing to families and kid audiences," says Knightscove@Home Vice President Blair Moody. 

Knightscove's strategic focus on developing, producing and distributing family-centric programming continues to build across North American media platforms and distribution outlets.
