Toronto-based Sinking Ship Entertainment has inked several new broadcast deals for proprietary and third-party series in its catalogue.

TVP (Poland) picked up two seasons of the producer/distributor’s 24 x 22-minute sci-fi series Endlings, with Sky in the UK acquiring 52 x five-minute puppet series Playdate (which premiered in Canada on Family Jr. eight years ago). 

Canadian streamer CBC Gem bought the first two seasons of comedy series Odd Squad (114 x 22 minutes), which Sinking Ship produces in association with Fred Rogers Productions. Evision’s Ejunior kids channel has renewed its rights to air season one in UAE, as well as picking up Fred Rogers Productions’ animated series Alma’s Way (pictured, 40 x 22 minutes). And NHK in Japan bought the first season of animated/live-action series Dino Dana (52 x 22 minutes).

On the originals front, Sinking Ship recently sold its new CG-animated series Builder Brothers’ Dream Factory to Discovery Kids LatAm. Based around celebrity homebuilders Drew and Jonathan Scott, the show (40 x 11 minutes) will premiere this month on Canadian broadcaster Corus Entertainment’s Treehouse channel.
