International kids television channel KidsCo has licensed five new shows from Canada-based Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana.
Beyblade, Grossology, Rolie Polie Olie, Jacob Two-Two and Babar will make up part of the channel’s January 2013 schedule when the refreshed brand debuts on-air January 8.
KidsCo also recently commissioned Australia-based Matchbox Pictures to produce Zuzu and the Supernuffs, slated to air in all KidsCo territories in 2013.
Kidsco is a joint-venture owned by NBCUniversal and Toronto-based Corus Entertainment.
The channel for preschoolers, kids ages six to 10, and families is available on satellite, cable and IPTV platforms across Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
