Decode Ent. traveled to MIPTV 2007 with a brand new show, BO ON THE GO! The series has been commissioned by Canada's CBC and is produced by Decode's sister company in DHX Media Ltd., Halifax Film.

Employing motion-capture technology and CG, BO ON THE GO! promotes an active lifestyle and an active mind for preschoolers. It has been created by a dedicated group of artists, broadcasters and educators to instill a love of movement in children, as well as promote a more active lifestyle while linking their activity to a plot-driven story.

Bo is a positive, super-energetic and inquisitive young heroine who, along with her young friend, a Dezadore dragon named Dezzy, encourages children at home to go on amazing adventures by actively joining her in a variety of movements that assist her on her quest. Like all heroes, Bo faces challenges and obstacles and receives small rewards and victories along the way. Bo's "Bo-Buddies" (the young viewers) must move along with her.

"Helping kids have a healthy lifestyle with lots of exercise is an issue facing broadcasters around the world and this is a fun, interactive show that gets them moving around at an early age," said Dominique Bazay, vp, distribution at Decode Ent.

"One of the greatest challenges for today's creators is to devise a program that achieves the magical format of turning viewers into doers," added Cheryl Hassen, coo of Halifax Film. BO ON THE GO! achieves this magic."
