L.A.-based Sonar Entertainment has joined forces with Australian prodco Like A Photon Creative to co-produce upcoming preschool mixed-media series Bear & Salmon. Sonar will also handle all international distribution and formatting rights to the 104 x three-minute series.
Revolving around the friendship between a bear and salmon, the show aims to answer life’s big questions from the perspective of a young child. It was recently named runner-up for Best in Show at this month’s Asian Animation Summit in Brisbane, Australia.
Like A Photon Creative recently found success with 3D-animated preschool series Balloon Barnyard (26 x seven minutes), which currently airs on Disney Junior Australia. Sonar Kids and Family, meanwhile, is behind Counterfeit Cat, which airs on Disney XD in the US and Teletoon in Canada.
