Boat Rocker Studios has secured a range of deals on MarcoPolo Learning’s preschool animated series The Polos, which is built around a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) curriculum.

Boat Rocker Studios is co-producer and distributor of the 52×5-minute production and a strategic investor in MarcoPolo Learning. Deals have been secured with Discovery Family in the U.S., Nat Geo Kids for Latin America, Viacom18 in India, CJ ENM in Korea, PCCW Media in Hong Kong and Dreamia in Portugal.

Justin Hsu, CEO and co-founder of MarcoPolo Learning, noted, “Our mission is to channel the power of digital learning in order to spread curiosity about the natural world around a structured STEAM curriculum. That curiosity is essential to the development of the core competencies children will need to make positive future contributions in our 21st-century world. These sizeable deals are a fantastic first step towards helping us realize our global objectives.”

Michel Pratte, chief revenue officer at Boat Rocker Media, added, “We have been big believers in MarcoPolo’s strategy, and this brand extension through the Polos into global TV solidifies our belief that premium IP must truly be global and multiplatform.”
