Mondo Media, the company behind Happy Tree Friends, and Six Point Harness, the studio responsible for Dick Figures, have pooled together their resources to form the new Mondo Media. The all-stock merger was officially closed in late-2015, but the companies announced only last Wednesday that they are formally operating as a single company.
Both companies are privately held, and financial terms of the merger were not disclosed. What we do know is that the new company recently opened a 16,000-square-foot studio in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Mondo Media will be known as Mondo for all of its consumer-facing activities, including distribution of its series to digital and broadcast networks, while production services will be offered through the name Six Point Harness.
Mondo Media founder John Evershed will serve as CEO of the entire operation, while Six Point Harness founder Brendan Burch will assume the dual roles of Mondo Media’s chief creative officer and president of Six Point Harness, and join Mondo Media’s board of directors. As part of the merger, Third Wave Digital—investors in AwesomenessTV, MiTu, Tastemade, Stylehaul and Vessel—has invested in Mondo Media, and its managing partner, Allen DeBevoise, will continue to serve on the company’s board.
