MIPTV Spotlight: Sesame Workshop


Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster and the rest of the Sesame Street gang have all-new adventures in Sésamo, in which they learn about math and science, where food comes from, and explore their emotions.

Sésamo, locally produced in Latin America and featuring a curriculum and content tailored for kids in the region, is available in Spanish and Portuguese,” says Ed Wells, Sesame Workshop’s senior VP and head of international media and education.

In Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck, the titular character and his friend Gonger collect ingredients for special recipes. “Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck is incredibly timely, as we’re seeing huge growth in the food-truck industry,” says Wells.

Abby Cadabby takes center stage in The Magical Wand Chase, “a Sesame Street special that serves as a great supplement to the weekly content, and it can be aired in prime time,” adds Wells. “It features everyone’s favorite fairy, her furry red monster friend and the rest of the Sesame gang.”
