Guru sign distribution for 123 Number Squad
Children’s entertainment powerhouse Guru Studio is pleased to announce today it has acquired global distribution rights for seasons 1 and 2 of 123 Number Squad!, the animated adventure series from Omens Studios.
The 104 x 11 minute CG preschool series was commissioned by Singapore’s Mediacorp and both seasons were prebought by SkyKids and NOW in the UK for launch early 2023.
123 Number Squad! follows Paula, Billy and Tim, a fast-response rescue team that uses numbers, counting and shapes to help the citizens of 123 Numberville. Aimed at children 3-6 years old, the series also explores key social and emotional development themes like sharing, resilience, teamwork, and friendship.
“123 Number Squad! is a perfect addition to our preschool slate,” said Corey Caplan, Senior Director of International Sales at Guru Studio. “The team at Omens have done a masterful job creating a world that both entertains and educates kids, and we’re excited to bring these fun adventures to even more families around the world.”
Chi Sim Tang, CEO of Omens Studios, adds: “Guru is the ideal distribution partner for 123 Number Squad!. Their track record in building preschool brands speaks for itself and we are excited to see the roll out of our show globally following its launch on Mediacorp in Singapore and Sky TV and NOW in the UK.”
In addition to worldwide broadcast rights, Guru Studio is also representing 123 Number Squad! across all global Licensing and Merchandising.
The series is executive produced by Sally Merchant (Peppa Pig, Thomas and Friends) with Sacha Goedegebure as Show Runner.
Along with 123 Number Squad!, Guru Studio is bringing a growing roster of its own originals to MIPCOM, including Scoops, a new educational comedy in development with the support of TIME Studios’ Kids & Family division, as well as Big Blue, Pikwik Pack, and the preschool hit True and the Rainbow Kingdom.
