Qubo picks up Taste Buds
Toronto, Canada’s Entertainment One (eOne) has inked a broadcast deal with kids TV and online US entertainment service Qubo Channel for the hit live-action, food-themed children’s adventure series Taste Buds.
The 32 x 30-minute series produced by Toronto’s marblemedia caters to kids ages six to 10 and promotes healthy eating by encouraging its audience to participate in food preparation, from shopping and cooking to eating and cleaning up. Its hosts also promote foods from around the world and environmental responsibility.
The latest deal follows on the heels of Qubo announcing its slate for the upcoming season, which includes the addition of 16 animated and live-action series to its 2012 lineup.
Qubo is available 24/7 as a digital channel and at www.qubo.com. It also appears as a branded block Wednesday to Friday mornings in the US on ION Television, Saturday mornings on NBC and weekend mornings on Telemundo.
