Paris, 29th September, 2017
Premium kids content distributor Federation Kids & Family and its sister production company Cottonwood Media are delighted to announce yet another slew of sales for their animated preschool series The Ollie & Moon Show (52 x 11), with YLE (Finland), Canal Panda (Spain), and TFO (Canada) joining a sensational broadcasting network in over 160 countries.
The hit preschool show debuted in the US this March on NBC Sprout, where it has racked up strong ratings and a top licensing agent, Spotlight Licensing. Other leading broadcasters around the world include Netflix (US, Canada), France Television (France), Discovery Kids (LatAm, Middle East), TVO (Canada), VRT (Belgium), and Knowledge (Canada), among many others.
Sales were closed by Monica Levy, Senior Vice President, Co-Production and Sales, Federation Kids and Family, who commented, “It has been a joy to see how universal the charm of Ollie & Moon is. These happy, madcap cats charm everyone, whether they are American or Canadian, French or Finnish, Latin or Middle Eastern – everyone falls for Ollie & Moon!”
The Ollie & Moon Show (52 x 11) is an animated, upper-preschool, television series celebrating unusual friendships, curiosity, and appreciating the differences in all of us. The series stars two cute and kooky cats – the carefree, adventurous, and happy-go- lucky moon along with the practical, straight-laced, by-the- book Ollie – who have a knack for spinning everyday preschool life into zany globetrotting adventures.
The television series is based on the best-selling Ollie & Moon books created by author and illustrator Diane Kredensor. Kredensor, who serves as creative producer for The Ollie & Moon Show, is an Emmy Award-winning artist, director and producer whose credits include “Pinky and the Brain” and “Clifford the Big Red Dog,” among others. The show was developed in collaboration with Kredensor by Robert Vargas (Wonderpets, Henry Hugglemonster), and David Michel (Totally Spies!, Get Blake).
The Ollie & Moon Show is produced by Cottonwood Media and distributed by sister company
Federation Kids & Family.
