Big Bad Boo’s 16 Hudson to Make Canadian Debut


16 Hudson, a new animated preschool show from Big Bad Boo Studios (1001 Nights), is premiering in Canada this fall with 39 7-minute episodes and three holiday specials celebrating Chinese New Year, Diwali and Persian New Year.

16 Hudson follows the adventures of diverse friends as they explore their neighborhood together. The series debuts on TVOKids on August 21, followed by Knowledge Kids on September 3. Additional broadcasters launching the show later this year include SRC Radio Canada in French, ICI TV in Persian and the SVOD channel Oznoz.

Big Bad Boo plans to distribute 16 Hudson around the globe in multiple languages. The company is also releasing free digital media components, including three digital storybooks and three online games.

Shabnam Rezaei, creator/director of 16 Hudson, said: “Airing the show in three languages across Canada alone is a testament to the nature of 16 Hudson. For the first time, we are normalizing families that you see every day in real life on TV.”
