BGM Sphere’s Gabby’s Farm to Debut on TVOkids


Gabby’s Farm, a new preschool series from BGM Sphere, is slated to premiere on TVOkids on May 17.

The TVOkids original Gabby’s Farm guides its audience of kids aged 3 to 5 through the world of farming and agriculture, encouraging their curiosity about nature, food, animal care and more. Hosted by Gabby, an adventurous 6-year-old girl who’s passionate about farming, the series will give viewers a close look at all of the animals, equipment and activity that she encounters on her family farm.

Gabby’s Farm will be accompanied by the short-form series Count with Gabby!, which delves into Gabby’s love of math and counting while exploring the farm.

Marney Malabar, TVO’s director of kids TV, said: “We are excited for Gabby’s Farm to premiere on TVOkids, and can’t wait to introduce everyone to Gabby, her family and her farm friends. Farms offer so many practical and engaging ways to learn about the world and build the skills children will need for starting school. And Gabby is such an enthusiastic host—families love watching her.”

TVOkids has also greenlit a second season of Backyard Beats from BGM, part of Sphere Media. This Canadian Screen Award-nominated music and arts series will be hosted again by Monica Brighton of That TVOkids Show.

Marlo Miazga, BGM president and executive producer of unscripted, said: “After such a successful first season of Backyard Beats, we are ecstatic to be welcoming Monica Brighton back as host for season two. The timing is perfect, as activities during the pandemic can be limited and children are looking for new and fun at-home crafts to stay creative. We are so excited to get back into creating more episodes of our award-winning show, and are confident that our viewers will love what’s to come.”
