Disney Branded Television Unveils New Orders & Producing Deal


Disney Branded Television’s SuperKitties and Pupstruction have landed third seasons ahead of their season two debuts.

For preschoolers, SuperKitties follows four superhero kittens on their mission to make their town of Kittydale a more caring place. Pupstruction, for ages 2 to 5, follows the adventures of an all-dog construction crew.

The animated series are currently airing on Disney Channel and Disney Junior, with some episodes also available to stream on Disney+.

Both series will also be launching new off-air extensions, including a brand-new SuperKitties toy line to launch this spring, featuring playsets, figures, plush, costumes, apparel and more. A Pupstruction toy line is slated to debut later this year, along with an assortment of children’s books from Disney Publishing Worldwide.

SuperKitties is produced by Sony Pictures Television – Kids in association with Disney Junior. Pupstruction is produced by Titmouse in association with Disney Junior.

“With their adorable characters and heartfelt adventures, these two series have clearly struck a chord with our preschool audience,” said Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television. “Both series exude teamwork, optimism, friendship and resilience, and feature some pretty catchy music—just some of the signature qualities that make our Disney Junior programming a hit with kids and families alike.”

The company has also inked a wide-ranging deal with Chris Houghton and Shane Houghton, creators and executive producers of Disney Channel’s Big City Greens.

Under this multiyear producing deal, the Houghtons will produce animated projects with Disney Television Animation studio and provide opportunities to develop live-action projects within Disney Branded Television across linear and streaming platforms. Additionally, the deal includes development opportunities for adult animation projects with 20th Television Animation.

Disney Branded Television has also revealed that a fourth Zombies movie has been greenlit.

Production will begin next month in New Zealand, with Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim set to reprise their roles as Addison and Zed, Seabrook’s star-crossed zombie/cheerleader couple. Donnelly and Manheim will also executive produce.

The franchise’s fourth installment follows Zed and Addison as they embark on a road trip the summer after their first year of college. Zombies 4 (w.t.) brand extensions will include a cross-category product line of apparel, accessories, costumes and fashion dolls by Mattel and more.
