1001 Nights Returning to Discovery Kids Asia, RTP Portugal


VANCOUVER: Big Bad Boo Studios has renewed its deals with Discovery Kids Asia and RTP Portugal for the popular animated series 1001 Nights, which is heading into its third season.

In each episode of 1001 Nights, storyteller Shahrzad tells a different Arabian Nights tale. Discovery Kids Asia airs the show in such territories as Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Nepal and the Philippines. RTP broadcasts the series in Portugal as well as in Portuguese-speaking African countries, including Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe.

1001 Nights is a show we’ve created particularly with multiculturalism and inclusion in mind,” said co-creator Shabnam Rezaei. “It makes me very happy to see that the series is equally popular in Europe, Asia, South America and North Africa. It means that we’ve succeeded in creating universally interesting children’s content that strikes a note with young audiences across cultures.”
