Worldwide producer-distributor Portfolio Entertainment will be bringing a refreshed lineup of kids’ content to the MIPCOM market in Cannes next month, including two new animated series: Bubu and the Little Owls and Cyberchase.
Bubu and the Little Owls (26 x 11 min.) is a colorful preschool series featuring a family of cute owls who face a new nature adventure in each episode and find answers to their questions through inventions, songs and games. Airing soon on Disney Junior Latin America, Portfolio has the international rights for the series outside of Latin America. The concept comes from Uatt? Group’s Up! Content.
For slightly older audiences, the Emmy-winning PBS KIDS’ series Cyberchase (114 x 30 min.; kids 6-11), produced by THIRTEEN, is a wild ride through cyberspace where the power of math and STEM are put to use in a classic good-versus-evil battle. Portfolio will be taking the newest 20 x 30′ episodes of Cyberchase internationally for the first time (excluding US and Canada), as well as the 72 x 30′ episodes from past seasons that are now available for the first time in HD.
Portfolio has also picked up a second season of live-action series Do You Know? ahead of MIP. The 15-minute factual program stars YouTube personality Maddie Moate, who helps young viewers understand how everyday things work.
