9 Story Entertainment’s new animated preschool show Peg + Cat will make a splash at the MIPTV market in France in April. The 80 X 11 series was created by Emmy-winning creative director, animator and children’s writer Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets!) and Billy Aronson (Rent, Postcards from Buster) and developed with partner The Fred Rogers Company for PBS Kids.
Peg + Cat chronicles the adventures of Peg and her sidekick cat as they encounter unexpected problems that require creative solutions. In order to solve the problems, Peg and her cat must add, subtract and apply basic arithmetic.
“We are delighted to once again be working with the Fred Rogers Company on this remarkable series. Its unique visual style wrapped around a fascinating world of adventure and music will bring enjoyment to young viewers the world over,” said Vince Commisso, 9 Story’s president and CEO.
“We loved Peg + Cat from the moment we first saw it,” said Kevin Morrison, COO of The Fred Rogers Company. “Its quirky humor, beautiful design and engaging music make it irresistible. We’re delighted to be bringing this new series to today’s young audience.”
