Scholastic Entertainment, producers of CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG and THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS, will be presenting top performing properties at MIP-TV 2004, headlined by the new animated series, MAYA & MIGUEL at booth G3.37. The new comedy chronicles the adventures of 10-year-old twins Maya and Miguel as they figure out how to leave their stamp on the vibrant world around them.

Were thrilled about adding MAYA & MIGUEL to our strong slate of programming offerings at MIP-TV this year, said Deborah Forte, president of Scholastic Ent. The series will chronicle the adventures of 10-year-old Latino twins, Maya and Miguel Santos, as they figure out how to leave their stamp on the vibrant world around them. Featuring their family, relatives and diverse neighborhood friends, MAYA AND MIGUEL will reflect back to viewers the cultural mosaic that our world has become.

Scholastics roster of programming also includes: CLIFFORDS PUPPY DAYS, 25 episodes of an all-new animated series about Cliffords puppyhood; 26 episodes of the Emmy Award-winning new series, I SPY, the colorful, original play-along, half-hour series, based on the best-selling I SPY picture-riddle books; STELLALUNA, a special, adapted from the best-selling childrens book, which garnered several awards including Book Of The Year from American Bookseller as well as Weston Woods award-winning animated programs based on classic and best-selling childrens picture books. STELLALUNA features narration from Hollywood stars including Meryl Streep, John Lithgow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chevy Chase.

CLIFFORDS PUPPY DAYS stories have a great message for kids that however small they are, with enough caring and attention, you can make really big things happen, said Forte, who is an exec producer on the series. We are delighted to bring all new stories, settings and characters to CLIFFORD fans around the world. Were also very excited about the programming possibilities for our brand new adaptation of STELLALUNA, which through the story of a baby bat who is raised by a family of birds, will help kids learn the essence of friendship and family in humorous and touching ways.
