Portugal’s Nutri Ventures Corporation has inked an exclusive deal with Hulu Kids to make its nutrition-themed animated kids series Nutri Ventures: The Quest For The 7 Kingdoms available for streaming in the US.
The 29-episode series for kids ages four to eight launched on January 15 on the streaming platform via the Hulu Plus subscription service, with 11 eps available for free on Hulu.com.
Nutri Ventures, which is billed as the first entertainment brand in the world created exclusively to promote healthy eating, follows the adventures of main characters Theo, Lena, Ben, Little Nina, and furry friend Guga on their quest to find real food, having only known and eaten Genex 100, a synthetic food developed by the evil Alex Grand.
The series is accompanied by a Nutri Ventures virtual world, which features a variety of fun activities for kids and educational tools for parents and educators.
Since launching in 2012, the series has gone on to air in 20 countries and has drawn strong ratings for Spain’s Disney Channel and Brazil’s SBT.
Nutri Ventures has also partnered with the World Health Organization and a number of ministries of education and health worldwide.
The deal comes on the heels of Hulu Kids acquiring non-exclusive content from Scholastic.
