Toronto, Canada’s 9 Story Entertainment has sewn up a raft of new international broadcasting deals for its math-based preschool series Peg + Cat.
Treehouse (Canada), SVT (Sweden), YLE (Finland), TVNZ (New Zealand), TG4 (Ireland) and Canal+ Family together (France and French-speaking territories) have all acquired the animated series which was most recently picked up by Germany’s Super RTL for Germany and German-speaking Europe.
The series originally aired in fall 2013 on PBS Kids in the US and launched earlier this month on Treehouse in Canada.
Peg + Cat follows the adventures of a little girl, Peg, and her feline sidekick, Cat, who use basic arithmetic to solve unexpected problems in fun and creative ways.
Created by Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets!) and Billy Aronson (Rent, Postcards from Buster), the series is a 9 Story and The Fred Rogers Company co-production for PBS Kids. 9 Story is also the show’s animator and distributor.
Additional broadcasters already signed on to the program include ABC TV Australia, HOP (Israel), Mini-Mini (Poland), E-Junior (UAE), Zee Learn (India) and Disney (Korea).
