Vancouver, Canada -- Nerd Corps Entertainment announced that their first original preschool series, Kate & Mim-Mim, will be twirling onto TV sets across Canada! The company has secured a television deal with BBC Kids and Knowledge Network for the 52 x 11 minute series, set to begin airing in 2014.
Kate & Mim-Mim is a visually stunning 3D-animated series for girls 2-5, created by award-winning husband and wife duo Scott and Julie Stewart. The series is developed and produced by Nerd Corps Entertainment, with funding from the Shaw Rocket Fund. FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment holds the exclusive worldwide distribution and licensing rights for the property outside of Canada.
Kate & Mim-Mim tells the story of the special friendship between five-year-old spirited Kate and her plush bunny Mim-Mim. Whenever Kate is faced with a real-world problem, she twirls off to her fantasy world, where Mim-Mim comes alive as a larger-than-life playmate! Together they go on adventures, explore new places and meet new friends on the way to discovering a solution to Kate’s real-world puzzle. She always returns to the real-world with thrilling tales of adventure to tell her parents.
“We are very pleased to be working with Knowledge Network and BBC Kids Canada. We are a British Columbia-based company, so it is truly exciting to be collaborating with a BC-based broadcaster in Knowledge Network and a prestigious national network in BBC Kids Canada,” said Ken Faier, El Presidente of Nerd Corps Entertainment.
Michele Paris, Senior Program Manager at Knowledge Network added, “Kate & Mim-Mim reflects the rich inner world of preschoolers everywhere – filled with imaginary friends, high energy adventures and inventive storytelling.
