MIPTV Spotlight: Sesame Workshop


Sesame Street Mecha Builders, a series that reimagines Elmo, Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby as robot superheroes-in-training with STEM superpowers, tops Sesame Workshop’s highlights.

Bea’s Block follows 5-year-old Bea and her two best block friends as they go on “kindness adventures” to help others in their community.

“Both series will include fully integrated educational curricula, engaging music and a whole lot of heart—everything parents expect from the makers of Sesame Street,” says Whit Higgins, senior VP of international media and education and distribution.

A new collection of animated formats, Play to Learn is designed to engage preschoolers with playful early learning content. The first format, Big Feelings Explorers, is focused on understanding and managing emotions.

“Sesame Workshop is committed to creating content that makes a positive impact on today’s kids,” says Higgins.
