Milo Heads to the U.S.


DeAPlaneta Entertainment has signed a deal with PBS that will see Milo debut on PBS KIDS and its free streaming platforms in May 2024.

The preschool series follows the titular young cat as he and his friends use role-play to explore various professions. Whether they’re playing as doctors, mechanics, hairdressers, chefs or postal workers, the underlying message is that all jobs matter.

Milo is co-produced by Fourth Wall (U.K.) and DeAPlaneta Entertainment. The second season is already broadcasting in the U.K. on Milkshake and will be broadcast worldwide in fall 2024.

In the U.S., in addition to airing on PBS KIDS and its streaming platforms, it will also be available to stream on the PBS KIDS Prime Video Channel.

“We can think of no better partner to bring Milo to U.S.-based audiences than PBS KIDS, one of the most relevant kids’ networks in the world, which shares with us the commitment to delivering exceptional content to young audiences and families,” said Diego Ibáñez Belaustegui, chief brand officer at DeAPlaneta Kids & Family. “This is a key agreement for the global expansion of our beloved series Milo, which in 2024 will be on air in more than 170 countries, among other destinations yet to be announced.”

Adriano Schmid, VP of PBS KIDS content, added, “We’re excited to bring the playful, curious world of Milo to our audiences at PBS KIDS. We hope that Milo’s energy, sense of wonder and desire to explore a variety of jobs will open up a world of possibilities for kids across the country, helping them discover new interests and passions along the way.”
