The CBS network and brand management company DIC Ent. announced plans to partner on the launch of an all-new, Saturday morning kids programming block dubbed CBS’s Secret Saturday Morning Slumber Party. Slated to debut this fall, the block will feature three hours of FCC-compliant children’s programming and serve as a platform to introduce new kids programs created by DIC.
CBS’s Secret Saturday Morning Slumber Party is part of a multi-year deal between CBS and DIC. The lineup will include such DIC properties as the Emmy Award-winning series Madeline and Where On Earth Is Carmen Sandiego, as well as Sabrina: The Animated Series, Strawberry Shortcake, Liberty’s Kids, Trollz, Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century, Archie’s Weird Mysteries, The Littles, Inspector Gadget’s Field Trip and Sonic Underground.
DIC and CBS executives will collaborate with the DIC Educational Advisory Board, a group comprised of leading media experts, educators and pediatricians which was created to provide information, guidance, advice and general expertise in the development of multimedia programs and projects for children.
