Rob Dyrdek's "Wild Grinders" Animated Skateboarding Series Gets Big Worldwide Air and a Second Season Pick-up for Nicktoons

LOS ANGELES, April 8, 2013 -- Home Plate Entertainment (HPE) announced a number of important developments for its hit animated series and core brand, Rob Dyrdek 's Wild Grinders, which launched last year on Nicktoons in the U.S. The series has been greenlit for a 26-episode half-hour season two for Nicktoons and will soon launch season one of the series in Europe and Latin America. The series, now being distributed by HPE's newly formed distribution company has been launched successfully on Liberty Global's Chellomedia & Zon Multimedia owned Panda Biggs in Portugal and in Brazil on Globosat's Award winning kid's channel, Gloob. With other deals soon to be announced, HPEDA has appointed Elastic Rights and Mondo TV to handle the property in southern Europe and the Middle East respectively.

"After a successful first season, getting the greenlight for season two of the animated series has allowed us to grow the show in so many creative ways - including really pushing the comedy. It has also been very rewarding to hear the support of the show's fans, who are now finding out about Wild Grinders and these crazy characters all over the world - as they grow in familiarity with the rest of my entertainment brands," said Rob Dyrdek , the show's creator and skateboarder turned media and Brand-trepreneur. Dyrdek, who is well known from his successful MTV shows, Rob & Big, Rob Dyrdek 's Fantasy Factory and the latest hit, Ridiculousness, which is in its third season, all air around the world, now with Rob Dyrdek 's Wild Grinders following suit. Among numerous other significant accomplishments, Dyrdek has also successfully launched "Street League", a professional street skating league competition. The internationally held and televised events are sponsored by major corporations and feature the world's top pro street skaters competing for the biggest purse in the sport - more than $2 million.

"The creative integrity and authenticity of the Wild Grinders animated series in addition to its universal stories and comedy makes it a brand for the future. The explosive growth of Dyrdek's increasing portfolio of brands is having a strong positive effect on our ability to bring the show to fans hungry for this type of cartoon comedy - almost underground to mainstream," said Home Plate CEO and the show's executive producer Bill Schultz .

In addition to the growing number of worldwide broadcast partners, DC Shoes just released an exciting new line of Wild Grinders' branded shoes for kids earlier this month with plans for apparel to follow, and deals with a leading party goods company, toys, a video game, and more, are all in the pipeline and will be announced shortly. The team at Dyrdek Enterprises, together with HPE, is also exploring other key categories timed to the launch of the new season of Rob Dyrdek 's Wild Grinders.
