London’s CAKE Entertainment has picked up worldwide distribution rights outside of North America to new PBS KIDS series Ready Jet Go!
Created by Craig Bartlett (Dinosaur Train, Hey Arnold!) and produced/financed by Wind Dancer Films (Home Improvement, Roseanne) with help from the scientists at Jet Propulsion Laboratory, this 3D-animated series is set to premiere in the US next February 15. Its goal is to help kids ages three to eight learn more about astronomy, science and technology, and features unique visuals and upbeat songs.
The show stars two young science enthusiasts who befriend the new kid on their street, Jet Propulsion, whose family is decidedly alien. Jet takes his new pals on adventures exploring the solar system, but he always makes sure they’re home in time for dinner.
CAKE will introduce Ready Jet Go! (40 x half hours, bolstered by a website, app and interstitial videos for broadcast and digital platforms) at MIPCOM this October, along with Rovio Entertainment’s three Angry Birds animated series, which it picked up earlier this month.
