Peg + Cat heads all over the world as 9 Story Entertainment secures a raft if international sales.
9 Story Entertainment announced that it has secured multiple sales of the animated preschool series, Peg + Cat (80 x 12’). The show has been acquired by Treehouse (Canada), SVT (Sweden), YLE (Finland), TVNZ (New Zealand), TG4 (Ireland) and Canal+ Family together (France and French-speaking territories). The series premiered earlier this month on Treehouse in Canada and originally debuted on PBS Kids in the U.S. in the fall of 2013.
The series was previously licensed to Super RTL (Germany and German-speaking Europe), ABC TV Australia, HOP (Israel), Mini-Mini (Poland), E-Junior (UAE), Zee Learn (India) and Disney (Korea).
Created by Emmy Award winning creative director, animator and children’s writer Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets!) and Billy Aronson (Rent, Postcards from Buster), Peg + Cat is co-produced by 9 Story Entertainment and The Fred Rogers Company for PBS Kids. 9 Story has international distribution rights to the series.
The series follows an adorable spirited little girl, Peg, and her sidekick, Cat, as they encounter unexpected problems that require fun and creative solutions. In order to solve the problems, Peg and her cat must add, subtract and apply basic arithmetic. Their adventures take them to historical far-away lands, art centers in bustling metropolises and the colorful cosmos, all the while demonstrating that it’s never too early to start learning the magic of numbers.
