Nickelodeon is off to the races with Corn and Peg, picking up season two (40 x 11-minutes) of Canadian prodco Nelvana’s animated preschool series.
Produced in association with Nick, the US net began airing season one in March. The series sees a young unicorn and pegasus strive to make their community a better place. The first season is launching on the kidcaster’s international channels and branded blocks this summer.
Canada’s Corus Entertainment, which owns Nelvana, first announced Corn & Peg in its 2018/19 lineup of kids content. Also on the lineup is the prodco’s new live-action preschool series Miss Persona (52 x three minutes). Debuting in October, the series is about a young lady who solves problems through imaginative dress-up roleplay.
Corus released the slate last summer after reporting in its 2018 Q1 financials that Nelvana drove a 24% lift in revenue for the company’s kids content business.
