PREMIUM SVOD PLATFORM
NOGGIN AND PRESCHOOL CHANNEL NICK JR. EXPAND EDUCATIONAL OFFERING WITH THE ADDITION OF SCHOOL OF ROARS
Barcelona – Miami – August 27, 2019 – In a deal brokered by GoldBee, Nickelodeon Latin America announced that it has acquired School of Roars from ZDF Enterprises for its premium SVOD platform, Noggin and its preschool channel, Nick Jr. The announcement was made today by Migdalis Silva, Vice President of Programming and Acquisitions for Nickelodeon Latin America.
From creator Alan Robinson and executive producers Jo Killingley (Dot To Dot Productions) and Sarah Legg (CBeebies), the 52-episode animated preschool series follows five mini monsters through their school day as they learn “monstery lessons” in math, music, cooking and life. The loveable Miss Grizzlesniff teaches the class. The show helps children prepare for school life by exploring a child’s first year through the relationships and experiences of these mini monsters. Because they are monsters, these little critters go to school at night learning lessons on how to be monsters, like counting the legs on spiders in math, how to howl at the moon in music or making a delicious Blushberry Blob Cake in cooking class.
“School of Roars is a unique and colorful property and a perfect fit for Noggin,” commented Silva. “The adorable and diverse monsters offer quirky humor; relatable situations and school based adventures that will help prepare Noggin’s young audience for preschool. We are certain that these little characters will delight kids and parents alike.”
Peter Lang, Vice President ZDFE.junior for ZDF Enterprises: “We are thrilled to welcome Nickelodeon’s Latin American audience to the ever-growing worldwide fan base of School of Roars. These super cute monsters are already an absolute hit with preschoolers in Australia, China, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, the UK, the United Arab Emirates and the USA”.
Christophe Goldberger, Managing Director – GoldBee: “Following its successful launch on MangoTV in China last month, we are thrilled to contribute to this amazing property’s expansion internationally”.
School of Roars will be available on Noggin beginning September 2019 and on Nick Jr. beginning 2020.
