Canada’s provincial pubcaster TVOKids is gearing up to keep sports fans on the edge of their seats with the June 22 debut of factual live-action series Sports Lab.
Produced by Toronto’s Riverbank Pictures and distributed by Breakthrough Entertainment, the 26 x 11-minute show will bow on TVO at 6:30 p.m., with repeat airings scheduled for Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. and Sundays at noon.
Aimed at kids ages seven to 13, Sports Lab focuses on the science of sports. A first ep, featuring Canadian soccer pro Dwayne DeRosario, is now available on TVOKids.com for a digital preview before its linear broadcast.
Sports Lab was shot in cities across the province of Ontario, profiling a wide range of sports including sledge hockey, break-dancing, horse dressage and para-alpine skiing.
