The Ollie & Moon Show to Air Across the Americas


PARIS: Federation Kids & Family and Cottonwood Media have secured two new presales for the animated preschool program The Ollie & Moon Show, with Discovery Kids Latin America and TVO Canada.

The Ollie & Moon Show follows two cats as they go on adventures around the world, teaching young viewers about serendipity, friendship and global citizenship along the way. The new deals will see the series airing in an additional 25 territories, including all of the Americas and most English-speaking markets. Delivery of the 52×11-minute book-based show, which uses a combination of animation and live action, is slated for 2017.

David Michel, producer and co-founder of Federation Kids & Family and Cottonwood Media, remarked: “We couldn’t find better homes for The Ollie & Moon Show. Discovery Kids and TVO mean high-end, quality programming that brings out the curiosity in kids—and this is exactly what our show is aiming for!”

Flavio Medeiros, the director of programming and acquisitions for Discovery Kids Latin America, noted: “The Ollie & Moon Show falls right in line with Discovery Kids’ mission to provide high-quality programs that not only entertain but also educate children in a fun and engaging manner. Moreover, the show teaches children the value of diversity, tolerance and cultural differences, which are important components of the world our young viewers live in today.”

“We are so thrilled that our two little cats have opened the door to these great broadcasters,” added Monica Levy, the senior VP of co-production and sales at Federation Kids & Family. “This really is a case of the perfect pairing of content and platform.”
