Irish pubcaster RTÉ’s distribution team is selling its kids content internationally for the first time, starting with a slate of six live-action educational shows.

The catalogue includes Wonder What (29 x six minutes) and Let’s Find Out (20 x 15 minutes) for preschoolers. These educational series explore how things work, using experiments to find answers. Insiders (10 x 11 minutes), meanwhile, dives into the science behind cool things, like how rollercoasters and theme parks work. For the older six to nine demo, RTÉ is distributing Body Brothers (30 x 11 minutes), which mixes science and movement to look at how the body functions. These four series are all produced by Irish prodco Stop.watch.

RTÉ is also selling GMarsh TV’s Wild Kids (pictured) for the six to nine set. This 15 x 15-minute series follows a team of explorers into different habitats to discover plants and wildlife. Kite Entertainment’s Squad Goals (26 x 24 minutes)—a team-based sport and challenge quiz show—rounds out the channel’s inaugural global distribution portfolio.
