MIPCOM Spotlight: Blue Ant International


A girl is on a mission to decide her career path in the STEM-themed series When I Grow Up!, from Blue Ant International’s children’s catalog.

“Mikaela speaks directly to her audiences as she navigates through the world of science and technology to determine what she wants to do when she grows up,” says Solange Attwood, the executive VP of Blue Ant International.

News of the Wild is a factual-entertainment program that puts a comedic spin on a broadcast news report for kids ages 7 to 10. “The series is hosted by two young anchors, alongside onsite kid news correspondents, who keep nature fans up-to-date with the latest from the animal kingdom,” says Attwood.

Detention Adventure comprises an ensemble cast and marks Blue Ant’s first scripted show for children. There is also a third season of The Inspectors.

In addition, the company is presenting a slate spanning documentaries, factual entertainment, nature and wildlife, and scripted and digital studios.
