Boat Rocker Studios and CBC Partner on Dino Ranch and Remy & Boo
Boat Rocker Studios and CBC, Canada’s public broadcaster, have announced their partnership on the forthcoming new CBC original preschool animations Dino Ranch and Remy & Boo (both also produced in association with Radio-Canada).
The titles were announced as part of CBC’s 2020-21 programming slate and are set to launch on CBC and CBC Gem soon. CBC has also acquired a further raft of Boat Rocker’s leading children’s titles. CBC Gem now offers more than 400 hours of ad-free programming for young audiences.
Jon Rutherford, Managing Director, Kids & Family and President, Rights, Boat Rocker Studios, said: “We are excited to continue to grow our partnership with CBC across these stellar shows, hot off the heels of the launch of The Next Step series 7 on CBC Gem. We are sure they will follow the success of TNS and become firm favourites with kids and families across Canada. These shows are key to our rapidly growing kids & family portfolio, which offers a wealth of compelling viewing for audiences globally.”
Marie McCann, Senior Director, Children’s Content, CBC Kids, said: “We think kids will be captivated with the jaw-dropping design and great storytelling coming from Matt Fernandes and the amazing creative teams at Industrial Brothers and Boat Rocker. Building on the success of last year’s Kingdom Force, this partnership will help us grow our library of best-in-class content for kids of all ages.”
