TORONTO -- Guru Studio has announced five new international deals which extend Justin Time's reach into more than 200 countries.

"Our agents at Jetpack Distribution and Small Screen Distribution have done astounding work in generating continued success growing the Justin Time brand," said Mary Bredin, Guru Studio's EVP of Content and Strategy.

"The global diversity of these broadcast and non-linear platforms proves that the success of a truly great show is never constrained by time nor distance,” commented Dominic Gardiner, CEO of Jetpack Distribution.

"These beloved characters enjoy discovering the world so it's wonderful that our audiences around the world continue to discover them," added Kerry Novick of Small Screen Distribution.

The show will also see expanded reach in the UK, with the Tiny Pop service now part of Sony Pictures Television, and will be airing on VMe Kids, America's first 24-hour Spanish -language educational preschool network, as of April 4, 2016. Currently in production are brand new episodes of Justin Time, which feature more adventure and comedy.
