PBS Kids in the US has linked up with the Fred Rogers Company and 9 Story Entertainment in Canada on the new preschool series Peg + Cat.
The animated 80x11’ series comes from Emmy winner Jennifer Oxley (Little Bill, The Wonder Pets) and Billy Aronson (Postcards from Buster). It follows the adventures of a young girl and her feline sidekick as they explore historical settings and art centres, and solve math problems.
9 Story, which is going into production on Brazilian copro Vivi, will produce and distribute the series, which was developed with Fred Rogers.
“We loved Peg + Cat from the moment we first saw it,” said Kevin Morrison, chief operating officer of The Fred Rogers Company (Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood). “Its quirky humour, beautiful design and engaging music make it irresistible.”
