Studio B’s ToddWorld Gets Discovered at NATPE

Children’s author and artist Todd Par’s colorful collection of books will be getting the toon treatment, thanks to Vancouver-based Studio B Productions. Unveiled at NATPE this week, the series is called ToddWorld and scheduled to air five times per week on the new Discovery “Ready, Set Learn” block, as well as on Discovery Kids. The block also contains programming from Henson Productions and WGBH, Boston.

The 52×11 pre-school TV series is a JEM Entertainment, Imaginease Prods. and Studio B co-production. US distribution will be managed by Imaginease Productions/JEM Entertainment, with Studio B handling International distribution. All three entities are currently pre-selling the show. L&G Licensing+ is the worldwide merchandising agent.

Studio B Prods. was voted one of the ten “most innovative and creative” studios in the world by children’s industry executives in the June issue of Television Broadcast International (TBI).
