MIPTV Spotlight: DHX Media


CANNES: Commissioned by YTV in Canada, Chuck’s Choice is a 2D animated comedy geared toward children between the ages of 6 and 11 that DHX Media is presenting to international buyers in Cannes.

The company is also highlighting Airmageddon, a kids’ drone-contest series commissioned by CBBC, and Little People, a new CGI preschool show based on the classic Mattel brand. “This MIPTV we’re bringing a unique cross-section of kids’ series for multiple demographics,” says Josh Scherba, DHX’s senior VP of distribution.

“DHX is synonymous with top-tier original content,” adds Scherba. “Last year we launched the new Teletubbies and live-action music-centric show Make It Pop, and since then both have become global blockbusters with a strong following. This year is no different in terms of quality content as we gear up to launch Airmageddon and Chuck’s Choice, and continue to promote Little People.”
