Canada’s 9 Story Entertainment is on board to produce and distribute PBS Kids’ new math-based preschool series Peg + Cat. 9 Story will be launching sales of the series at MIPTV in April.
Peg + Cat (80 x 11 minutes) was created by creative director, animator and children’s writer Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets!) and Billy Aronson (Rent, Postcards from Buster) and developed with partner the Fred Rogers Company for PBS Kids. The series follows the adventures of Peg and her sidekick cat as they encounter unexpected problems that require simple mathematical solutions.
The property currently offers games and other resources online at pbskids.org/peg, and additional interactive features, including more games, parent resources and a mobile app are slated to launch along with the on-air premiere in the Fall.
This isn’t the first collaboration between 9 Story and the Fred Rogers Company – their series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood launched on PBS Kids this past September.
