Jetpack Distribution is adding to their slate. The global kids content distributor has acquired international distribution rights to three CBeebies original series: My Petsaurus, Our Family and Time for School.
Jetpack has picked up rights to two seasons of My Petsaurus, consisting of a total of twenty episodes; two seasons of Time For School, consisting of forty episodes; four seasons of Our Family, consisting of eighty episodes and twenty-five shorts.
A blended live action and animation pre-school show, My Petsaurus follows Chloe, who is looking after her troublesome pet triceratops Topsy. It deals with the everyday tasks and problems encountered when raising your first pet. The series is produced by Bumpybox.
Time For School is a live-action series aimed at 3-7 year olds and follows real children embarking on their first ever term at school. It helps both pre-schoolers and grown ups prepare for this milestone. The series is produced by Sixth Sense.
Our Family is a BAFTA winning formatted observational documentary series for 3-7 year olds, also produced by Sixth Sense. It follows the daily lives of eight diverse young children and their families. Their stories are entertaining, funny, inspiring, sometimes sad but always filmed from a child’s perspective, telling tales of what it means to be part of family life today.
“We are delighted to add this trio of ‘edu-tainment’ shows to our catalogue”, said Dominic Gardiner, CEO of Jetpack Distribution. “The UK celebrates some of the greatest kids TV production and these shows are proven successes, drawing upon themes that affect many (if not most) pre-schoolers, giving them tools to navigate early life and provide valuable entertainment and learning experiences.”
