Toronto, Canada-based Portfolio Entertainment has grown its distribution slate with two animated series—Bubu and The Little Owls (pictured) and Cyberchase—as well as the second season of CBeebies live-action series Do You Know?
Preschool series Bubu and the Little Owls (26 x 11 minutes) follows owls that take on nature with new inventions, songs and games. It will launch soon on Disney Jr. Latin America, with Portfolio taking all rights outside of the region.
Also joining the refreshed roster is PBS KIDS series Cyberchase, which is aimed at kids ages six to 11. The animated adventure series is produced by THIRTEEN and follows a wild ride through cyberspace focusing on the power of math and STEM. Portfolio will distribute the show’s newest 20 x 30-minute episodes internationally (outside of the US and Canada).
Meanwhile, Portfolio has added the second season of 15-minute factual drama Do You Know? starring YouTube personality Maddie Moate. Portfolio has already licensed the show’s first season to Discovery Family (MENA & Africa), LOGI Channel (Israel) and Starz (USA). CBeebies recently commissioned the show for season two.
