Distribution360 has sold three properties to UK-based CSC Media Group at the Banff World Media Festival. CSC owns and operates several television channels in the UK: Tiny Pop (geared to kids 4-6) will air This is Daniel Cook and This is Emily Yeung, and Kix (geared to boys 7-12) will air Ambition Skatecamp.
- This is Daniel Cook (65 x 6′ Episodes): An educational adventure where children join six-year-old host Daniel Cook on all of his exciting adventures, whether he is learning with Olympic gold medalists and zookeepers, or creating with award-winning musicians. Preschoolers learn, create and explore with Daniel, a preschooler himself, who shares their interests and curiosity.
- This is Emily Yeung (65 x 6′ Episodes): Sunny six-year-old Emily Yeung is host to a whole universe of discovery and adventures that capture the imagination of preschoolers. Children tag along with Emily as she explores, learns and creates with everyone from painters and musicians, to politicians and rocket scientists.
Kix is the UK’s only channel devoted to boys 7-12 years old. It features a mix of gross-out comedy, action-packed animation, and high energy sports programming. Starting later this summer, the channel will broadcast:
- Ambition Skatecamp (8 x 30′ Episodes): Eight talented young skateboarders go head-to-head for an intense week of skateboarding competitions. The contestants compete for a profile in SBC Skateboard Magazine and a chance to participate in the Maloof Money Cup worth $450,000 in prize money.
“We’re very pleased to be bringing these great kids and youth properties to audiences in the UK,” says Stéphanie Röckmann-Portier, Managing Director/Head of Sales, Distribution360. “The CSC Media Group boasts an exceptional variety of programming on its channels,” continues Röckmann-Portier. “Daniel Cook, Emily Yeung, and Ambition Skatecamp will be great additions to the company’s lineup.”
