Spotlight: WildBrain


A brand-new version of WildBrain’s award-winning youth franchise Degrassi has been commissioned by WarnerMedia Kids & Family for HBO Max.

The reboot, “while staying true to the fundamental honesty, humanity and integrity of the brand, promises fans a journey into exciting new territory, both creatively and dramatically,” says Caroline Tyre, VP of global sales and rights strategy.

Ruby and the Well, a cinematic live-action series set to launch on Family Channel in Canada this year, highlights the importance of helping one another. “We know there is a real demand for thoughtful live action that captivates imaginations for this age group, and Ruby and the Well certainly fits this category.” Princess Mirror-Belle, the first-ever live-action adaptation of the best-selling books by Julia Donaldson, recently made its debut on the BBC in the U.K.

“For 2022, we’ll continue adapting and responding to the rapid changes we’ve seen in how kids and families consume content,” says Tyre.
