Nerd Corps Entertainment has recently announced that their first ever original preschool series, Kate & Mim-Mim, will be making its way to Canadian TV sets as the company has just secured a TV deal with BBC Kids and the Knowledge Network for the 52 x 11 minute series. The series is scheduled to begin airing next year.
Created by award-winning husband and wife team Scott and Julie Stewart, Kate & Mim-Mim is a 3D animated preschool series that follows the story of a special friendship between the titular characters. Whenever 5-year old Kate is faced with a problem in the real world, she twirls off to her fantasy world where Mim-Mim comes to life as a larger than life playmate. Together, the duo go on magical adventures, explore new places, and meet new friends in order to discover a solution to Kate’s real life problems.
“We are very pleased to be working with Knowledge Network and BBC Kids Canada. We are a British Columbia-based company, so it is truly exciting to be collaborating with a BC-based broadcaster in Knowledge Network and a prestigious national network in BBC Kids Canada,” said Ken Faier, El Presidente of Nerd Corps Entertainment.
Michele Paris, Senior Program Manager at Knowledge Network added, “Kate & Mim-Mim reflects the rich inner world of preschoolers everywhere – filled with imaginary friends, high energy adventures and inventive storytelling. We’re proud to work with Vancouver-based Nerd Corps on their first preschool production and bring these charming characters to kids across Canada on BBC Kids and Knowledge Network.”
CBeebies has picked up the show in the UK, also launching in 2014. FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment will be showcasing the property at MIPCOM and Brand Licensing Europe in October 2014.
