Decode Ent. augments its slate of third-party programming with the acquisition of worldwide TV distribution rights (excluding the U.S.) to Out of the Blue Ent.'s preschool literacy series SUPER WHY. The 65x22 show is a co-venture between BLUE'S CLUES producer Out of the Blue, co-founded by Angela C. Santomero and Samantha Freeman, and Decode. SUPER WHY is already airing on PBS in the U.S. and has also been picked up by Canada's CBC.
SUPER WHY was created to help kids learn the fundamentals of reading through interactive storybook adventures. The series focuses on the adventures of four fairytale friends who transform into literacy-powered superheroes called the Super Readers: Alpha Pig with Alphabet Power, Wonder Red with Word Power, Princess Presto with Spelling Power and Super Why with the Power to Read. The home viewer is Super YOU, the superhero sidekick with the Power to Help.
