Finland Gets Dino Dan
Finland’s YLE has recently picked up the hit children’s series Dino Dan, as announced by series owner Breakthrough’s president of distribution, Nat Abraham. Targeted towards kids aged 4 to 7, Dino Dan uses a mix of CGI and live-action in order to tell the story of a 10 year old boy whose every waking moment is taken up with dinosaurs, as he uses his vivid imagination to bring the magnificent creatures to life. Every episode follows Dan as he reimagines everyday situations into a dino adventure.
“We look forward to including Dino Dan in our programming line-up,” said Vicky Schroderus, YLE’s acquisitions exec. “Dinosaurs continue to fascinate children and this unique series succeeds in bringing these ancient creatures to life in a completely vibrant, educational, and often magical way.”
“Dino Dan, from award-winning producer, Sinking Ship Entertainment, is now playing across 85 countries, and we’re very delighted to introduce the series to Finland, a vital market for children’s programming,” said Abraham.
