Disney Channel in Germany has picked up the live-action preschool series This is Daniel Cook, co-produced by marblemedia and Sinking Ship Entertainment, from distributor Picture Box.
The show is slated to launch on the Playhouse Disney block June 10, marking the first deal on a dubbed version of the live-action show. “Traditionally, live-action pre-school series are not sold internationally because broadcasters tend to produce this genre within their own countries,” said Rita Carbone Fleury, programming and sales consultant for marblemedia. “This sale speaks to the worldwide appeal of the series and the demand in the marketplace for preschoolers to see kids like themselves on television. And we are excited that Disney Channel Germany seems to agree.”
Nominated for three Gemini awards, This is Daniel Cook is a live-action, preschool TV series that follows host Daniel Cook as he explores, learns and creates with everyone from yoga instructors to stunt car drivers. The show airs on Corus Entertainment’s Treehouse, TVO Kids, Knowledge Network, Access Alberta, SCN in Canada and Playhouse Disney in the U.S.
