Justin Time to bow on Sprout
Toronto’s Guru Studio will debut its original CGI adventure series Justin Time in the US on 24-hour preschool channel Sprout on April 22, and a new licensing program is also in the works.
Broadcasters currently airing the hit series include Discovery Kids (Latin America), Disney Junior (Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy and French-speaking Canada), YLE (Finland) and HOP! Channel (Israel).
Sprout has signed on for seasons one and two (set for delivery this fall). This latest Justin Time deal follows closely on the heels of Guru announcing a partnership with Canada’s zinc Roe Design to create online and mobile games based on the show.
