In addition to Sprout, “Poppy Cat” is set to air on Nick Jr. U.K., Nick Jr. Australia, RTE Ireland, YLE Finland, TV2 Norway and TVO, SCN and Knowledge Network in Canada.“Poppy Cat” brings to animated life the preschool children’s character created by Lara Jones in the Macmillan book series of the same name.
“We are thrilled to be breaking into the competitive U.S. marketplace,” says Michael Dee, director of content at Coolabi. “Securing an American broadcast deal for a U.K.-produced show is notoriously difficult, but clinching the deal before the show has even aired in the U.K. is a real coup for Coolabi. Sprout is the ideal home for Poppy Cat in the U.S. and we are excited to bring this new pre-school property to new audiences as the show rolls out globally this year.”
