Children’s content producer-distributor Federation Kids & Family and sister prodco Cottonwood Media have secured further sales of animated comedy-adventure The Ollie & Moon Show (52 x 11) to Super! (Italy) and YLE (Finland), its first Nordic terrestrial broadcaster. These latest partners join the show’s global reach of over 150 countries already on board.
“In very little time, we have been fortunate to secure broadcast for The Ollie & Moon Show in well over 150 territories, across a varied array of markets and platforms,” said David Michel, Producer and Co-Founder of Federation Kids & Family and Cottonwood Media. “This enthusiastic reception of the series, which follows its huge publishing success, lays the groundwork for our long-term licensing strategy.”
Previous key sales include top channels like France Télévisions (France), NBC Sprout (USA), TVO (Canada), Discovery (LatAm), D-Kids (MENA), Knowledge (Canada), VRT (Belgium), and IETV (Israel).
The Ollie & Moon Show features a couple of curious, globe-trotting cats who drag their upper-preschool audience with them on their travels around the world introducing them to the joys of unlikely friendships and global citizenship. Kids join them on their vivid adventures around the world – enjoying the fun that comes from discovering new food, language, cities, customs, and friends.
The series is produced using a mix of animated characters and live-action backgrounds by Cottonwood Media, based on the best-selling book series by author-illustrator Diane Kredensor, who is also an Emmy winning artist, direct and producer with credits including Pinky and the Brain, Clifford and World World. The show was developed in collaboration with Kredensor by Robert Vargas (Wonderpets, Zack & Quack, Henry Hugglemonster) and David Michel (Totally Spies!, Get Blake, Rekkit Rabbit). Kredensor is also creative producer.
The Ollie & Moon Show is distributed by Federation Kids & Family, and will be delivered this year.
