New preschool series based on the book series from Emmy-winning author and illustrator Diane Kredensor is produced by Cottonwood Media.
PARIS -- Federation Kids & Family and sister production company Cottonwood Media have announced a raft of new presales for their new 11-minute, 52-episode animated preschool series, The Ollie & Moon Show, pushing its global network to more than 150 countries. The latest key broadcast partners to sign up include D-Kids (Middle East), IETV (Israel), VRT (Belgium), and Knowledge (Canada).
“We are extremely proud to have achieved so many, and such significant, pre-sales for a previously unknown TV property,” commented David Michel, Producer and Co-Founder of Federation Kids & Family and Cottonwood Media. “Our ambition has been to create exclusively premium content; we hope that the scale of Ollie & Moon’s pre-sales is an indication that we have accomplished this goal.”
“It has been extraordinary to see such universal, cross-cultural interest in a series,” added Monica Levy, Senior Vice President, Co-Production and Sales, Federation Kids and Family, who closed the sales. “From France to the US, Latin America to the Middle East, Ollie & Moon’s curiosity, humor and sweetness clearly appeals to all kids, no matter where they come from.”
The Ollie & Moon Show will debut in 2017 on top kids broadcasters around the world including France Television (France), NBC Sprout (US), Discovery Kids Latin America, TVO Canada and premium global SVOD platforms, among others.
The Ollie & Moon Show features a couple of curious, globe-trotting cats who drag their upper-preschool audience with them on their travels around the world introducing them to serendipity, the joys of unlikely friendships, and global citizenship. Kids are immersed in vivid adventures around the world -- with all the fun that comes from discovering new food, language, cities, customs, and friends. Designed to show kids the world in a funny and engaging way, The Ollie & Moon Show is edutainment at its very best.
Using a unique mix of animation (cats) and live-action (backgrounds) The Ollie & Moon Show is based on the best-selling book series created by author and illustrator Diane Kredensor. Kredensor is an Emmy Award-winning artist, director and producer whose credits include Pinky and the Brain, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Word World, among others. The series was developed in collaboration with Kredensor by Robert Vargas (Word World, Wonderpets, Zack & Quack, and Henry Hugglemonster), and David Michel (Totally Spies!, Get Blake and Rekkit Rabbit). Kredensor also serves as creative producer. Delivery is planned for 2017.
The Ollie & Moon Show is produced by Cottonwood Media and distributed by sister company Federation Kids & Family.
