Toronto-based Distribution360 has picked up three new kids and family titles to join its growing slate of content. On deck are 2017 Emmy-winning series for Outstanding Children’s/Family Viewing Give, live-action preschool series I’m Ready and Genius Genie (pictured).
Give is produced by Bungalow Media & Entertainment in association with Litton Entertainment. The 26 x half-hour episodes feature a celebrity panel that examines different charities and decides which one to donate money to. The panel includes George W. Bush’s daughter Jenna Bush Hager and YouTube influencer, Bethany Mota.
The 78 x five-minute Genius Genie is a new 2D-animated preschool series from Canada’s ToonDraw Productions that centers on a well-meaning genie who doesn’t always get it quite right when he grants a wish. It has been commissioned by Canadian pubcasters Knowledge Network, Radio-Canada and Télé-Québec.
Live-action preschool series, I’m Ready (working title), meanwhile, is being produced by GAPC Entertainment for Canadian pubcaster TVO. The 40 x two-minute series aims to help preschoolers tackle the many firsts they experience on a daily basis like visiting the dentist or going to a birthday party.
