Federation Kids & Family Pacts with HBO Max for Squish


Federation Kids & Family has finalized a deal with the WarnerMedia-owned HBO Max for the children’s comedy series Squish.

Based on the original books by The New York Times best-selling authors Jennifer and Matthew Holm, Squish centers on the adventures of a twinkie-eating grade school amoeba who lives in a town inhabited solely by single-celled organisms. Through the new deal, Federation Kids & Family has sold all 52 episodes of Squish to HBO Max, which is slated to start airing the series Q1 2021.

Produced by Cottonwood Media and Planeta Junior, Squish was commissioned by Gulli. To date, the series has also sold to VRT and RTBF (Belgium), Wow and Quebecor (Canada), Hop TV (Israel), Tooniverse (Korea) and NEOX (Atresmedia in Spain).

Monica Levy, head of sales at Federation Kids & Family, said: “We are delighted to announce our first deal with HBO Max, a great partner and superb platform for Squish. This unique slapstick comedy is perfectly timed as younger viewers try to navigate their way through this pandemic, especially as all the central characters in the series are extremely ‘endearing’ amoeba, viruses and bacteria.”
