Following the acquisition of JAM’s hybrid series ‘Little Roy,’ ABC KIDS picks up brand-new preschool show merging live-action, puppetry, 2D and CG animation.
DUBLIN -- Multiple award-winning creative production, distribution and licensing company JAM Media has secured a major deal with ABC KIDS in Australia for its brand-new preschool series, Becca’s Bunch.
This deal follows an agreement recently signed with Nickelodeon, which has picked up
exclusive broadcast rights to the series in the U.S. and Pay TV rights for the rest of the world.
Currently in production, the 11-minute, 52-episode Becca’s Bunch centers on Becca, a bird that chirps to her own tune. Her can-do attitude allows her big ideas to take flight on the most fantastical adventures around Wagtail Woods. Becca and her Bunch -- Pedro, Russell and Sylvia --boldly go where no bird, worm, squirrel and fox have gone before. The series merges live action, puppetry, 2D and CG animation to create a textured world that the audience will want to reach out and touch.
ABC KIDS continues to support JAM Media’s properties and has already picked up the new hybrid live-action/animated 14-minute, 52-episode series Little Roy, which will broadcast in 2017.
“ABC continues to show its commitment to our shows and we are thrilled that ABC KIDS and ABC KIDS iview will air both Becca’s Bunch and Little Roy next year,” said John Reynolds, Chief Commercial Officer at JAM Media. “ABC KIDS is the perfect home for our series in this territory and we’re hopeful preschoolers in Australia will become fast fans of both shows.”
