Bejuba! Serves Up Third Season of Alien Toon ‘Jack’
Canada’s Bejuba! Entertainment has picked up the TV and home entertainment rights (worldwide excluding Australia and Asia) for the award winning 6-9 CGI animated series, Jack. A third season of 26 x 11 minutes has just been greenlit for a 2014 delivery. Jack is a comedy/adventure series about a curious explorer from another world who wants to learn about Earth and why things are the way they are. Together with his two Earth buddies, and his alien pet, Jack finds out why our tummies rumble or what happens to the rain.
Created and produced by Sparky Animation in Singapore and Groupe PVP in Canada, the series has also received attention from SRC, TVO and Knowledge Network in Canada. Jack has just been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Animation Series. Last year, it won a Gemeaux, the French Canadian television award for best kids’ website, and was nominated for Best Animation Series.
“The series is perfect bridge programming for kids who aren’t pre-schoolers anymore and who want fun and entertainment that’s just for them,” says Tatiana Kober, president of Bejuba! Entertainent. “The show weaves facts about the world in a way kids love…the greenlighting of the third series proves that. We’re delighted to add it to our catalogue.”
Small Screen Distribution handles the show’s Asian and Australian TV and DVD rights.
Bejuba!’s animation catalogue also includes shows such as The Hive, Zooville, Fizzy’s Lunch Lab, Stella and Sam, Big Block SingSong, Jibber Jabber and Ricky Sprocket. The company celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. For more info, visit www.bejuba.com.
