Boat Rocker Studios announced that its new animated preschool series, Dino Ranch (52 x 11’), has been picked up by Disney Junior U.S. The CG-animated show was created by Matt Fernandes of Industrial Brothers, which is producing with Boat Rocker Studios. Dino Ranch is currently in pre-production and set to premiere on Disney Junior in 2021, followed by an international roll-out.
Dino Ranch follows the action-packed adventures of the Cassidy family as they tackle life in a fantastical “pre-westoric” setting where dinosaurs still roam. As the young ranchers learn the ropes, they discover the thrill of ranch life whilst navigating the great outdoors through unpredictable challenges. This thrill-a-minute series, packed with comedy and adventure, introduces kids to problem-solving, the foundations of forging life-long friendships, strengthening family and community bonds, and taking care of animals.
“We are delighted to be working with Disney on Dino Ranch as they are the perfect platform to help us launch this entertaining new show in the U.S.,” said Jon Rutherford, Managing Director and President Rights, Boat Rocker Studios. “Matt’s unique vision of combining cowboys/cowgirls and dinosaurs has huge global appeal, and we look forward to building Dino Ranch into a global franchise!”
Boat Rocker Studios will manage the global distribution, brand and licensing of Dino Ranch, and is already in advanced discussions with a number of leading partners, with a global toy deal set to be announced shortly.
