Ricky Zoom Gears Up for Milkshake! Debut


Entertainment One’s (eOne) Ricky Zoom is ready for its debut on Channel 5’s Milkshake!, which is set to air episodes from season one Monday to Friday starting April 20.

Milkshake! is gearing up for the debut with pre-promotional on-air exposure and social media support. eOne is readying the digital release of three Ricky Zoom songs that will include an extended version of the theme tune and two all-new original songs, which will be available on streaming platforms from mid-April.

The launch of Ricky Zoom on Channel 5 follows a strong debut for the show last fall on Nick Jr. in the U.K., where it has been viewed by nearly 1.5 million to date.

“Adding to our existing strong roster of international broadcasters we’re thrilled to be bringing Ricky Zoom to the number one weekday preschool destination in the U.K.,” said Monica Candiani, executive VP of content sales for eOne Family & Brands. “The show is full of enjoyable all-bike adventures that will ignite young imaginations and we look forward to introducing the colorful world of Wheelford to future fans in the U.K. ahead of the consumer products rollout later this year.”
