Guru Studio and Home Plate Entertainment have announced TVO (Ontario, Canada’s public educational media organization) has joined the development team for their new animated preschool series Wish Come True (52 x 11), a property created by art collective/creative studio FriendsWithYou.
Wish Come True is a CG animated series for kids 3-6 and centers on a nine-year-old girl named True and her adventures in Rainbow city. With her best friend Bartleby the cat, True is on call to set problems aright thanks to her bravery, athleticism, cleverness and some special help from the Wishes. The Wishes are tiny sprite-like characters that have the ability to bestow powers—making things grow, helping True fly, run fast, bounce high or shrink. Each adventure sees True choose three Wishes from the Rainbow Kings collection to help her in her quest.
The show’s origin as an art concept from FriendsWithYou inspired a visually vibrant style; also manifested in a growing toy line currently sold in specialty toy stores around the world and on Amazon.
“TVOKids is happy to develop Wish Come True with Guru Studios and Home Plate Entertainment,” says Patricia Ellingson, TVO’s Creative Head of Children & Parent’s Media. “As a trusted source of children’s educational programming, TVOKids focuses on helping children to develop essential life skills by presenting a well-rounded curriculum on air and online. Critical thinking is key to becoming a good problem solver and decision making is the key learning outcome of Wish Come True.”
