Beyond Takes on New Preschool Show

SYDNEY, August 18: Beyond Distribution has taken on the
international distribution rights to Numberjacks, an animated comedy adventure series for preschool children produced
by Britain’s Open Mind Productions for the BBC.

Beyond Distribution will officially launch the series in
October at MIPCOM Junior. The show features CGI-animated superhero numbers who
solve problems in the real world, and is designed to help 4- and 5-year-olds
develop early math skills. “Numberjacks
presents an engaging and entertaining introduction to numbers by combining a
strong visual style with slapstick humor,” said Michael Carrington, CBeebies’
creative director. “It fits perfectly with the philosophy of CBeebies to
inspire the audience to learn while having fun.”

Fiona Crago, the GM of Beyond Distribution, added, "Numberjacks is first-rate entertainment programming for preschoolers—even
better that it has an educational twist. This is a bright and colorful new
series in our MIPCOM Junior line-up and we’re thrilled to represent it
