Health-oriented kids’ series LazyTown has a new US broadcast partner in preschool channel Sprout, joining the network’s lineup that includes Sesame Street, Barney & Friends, Thomas & Friends and The Wiggles.
The show will begin airing daily exclusively in the U.S. on Sprout this September.
The deal includes seasons one and two of LazyTown as well as LazyTown Extra. Additionally, LazyTown will be included on Sprout’s VOD service as well as on its website SproutOnline.com, where a host of games and colouring will live.
Created and starring Icelander Magnus Scheving, the program airs in more than 100 countries throughout the world. LazyTown is currently collaborating with various US government agencies on developing health initiatives for American families and has aligned with like-minded organizations such as US Soccer Foundation to promote physical activity with national grassroots campaigns.
