Taieb commented: “H2O has been ranking incredibly well for France 2 since its recent launch, as well as a phenomenal ratings success on Nickelodeon UK and we’ll look to build on this with our consumer products launch this Autumn. The show’s incredible appeal to tweens and girls makes it an ideal property to translate into targeted licensing and merchandising categories and we are looking forward to working with key licensing partners to bring this very special TV show to life.”

Fred Burcksen, Vice President Distribution, Merchandising and Investments, ZDF Enterprises said: "With its high production value and loveable mermaids, H20 – Just Add Water has huge branding potential all over the world.

When three normal teenage girls stumble upon an ancient cavern, they undergo a transformation that will change their lives forever. H20, sees three very different girls facing everyday teen problems with an added twist – they’re mermaids with incredible powers over water. Emma, Cleo and Rikki are sixteen year old girls growing up on the sun-drenched beaches of the Gold Coast.
