Nat Geo Kids Latin America has picked up the pay-TV rights for seasons one and two of Sinking Ship Entertainment’s Dino Dana, as well as the consumer products rights for the region. The live-action/CGI dinosaur series will begin airing on Nat Geo Kids in September.
The CP deal includes managing the brand’s consumer products across home and furnishings, apparel, publishing, toys and board games.
Based on the Emmy-winning Dino Dan and follow-up series Dino Dan: Trek’s Adventures, the live-action/CGI show follows Dana, a 10-year-old paleontologist in training, as she embarks on a series of adventures with dinosaurs. The series is created by J.J. Johnson (Dino Dan, Annedroids) and produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment in association with Yoopa, TVOKids and Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime Video rolled out the series across the US and the UK in May 2017. Nat Geo Kids, meanwhile, launched just under a year ago, featuring 400 hours of online and offline content. Nat Geo Kids recently picked up Opa Pupa Dupa, a new puppet-based original series produced by Estudios TeleMexico, aimed at preschoolers.
