Canadian studio Nerd Corps has announced new sales for its first original preschool show Kate and Mim-Mim to Knowledge Network and BBC Kids. The 52 x 11 series will debut on both outlets in 2013.
The CG-animated show is created by Scott and Julie Stewart, developed and produced by Nerd Corps Entertainment, with funding from the Shaw Rocket Fund. FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment holds distribution and licensing rights for the property outside of Canada.
Kate & Mim-Mim centers on the friendship between five-year-old Kate and her plush bunny Mim-Mim, who comes to life as a magical playmate! Together they go on adventures, explore new places and meet new friends on the way to discovering a solution to Kate’s real-world puzzle.
“We are very pleased to be working with Knowledge Network and BBC Kids Canada. We are a British Columbia-based company, so it is truly exciting to be collaborating with a BC-based broadcaster in Knowledge Network and a prestigious national network in BBC Kids Canada,” said Ken Faier, Nerd Corps Entertainment’s president.”
