“We are excited to be launching these new channels as we strengthen our production position with Zodiak Kids Studios," says Jean-Philippe Randisi, chief executive officer, Zodiak Kids. "Zodiak Kids content has been reaching kids online through various outlets for a number of years and these new channels present a fantastic family hub that we can cross-promote our content within and allow children throughout the globe to view content when and where they want to.”
ZeeKay Junior arrives with a base of 100,000 subscribers from existing Zodiak Kids content on YouTube and will feature new preschool content as well as key brands including "Mister Maker," "Waybuloo," "Zack & Quack."
ZeeKay will feature top Zodiak kids' brands such as "Totally Spies," "Team Galaxy," "Martin Mystery" and "LoliRock," while also serving as a hub for all newly commissioned tweencontent, such as CITV’s "Scrambled!"
The new channels will also work closely with Zodiak Kids Studios and third-party producers to create original content for the platform.
Both channels will be available on the new "YouTube" app later this year and will add new content regularly including long-form compilation clips, short clips, extras and bespoke content.
Natalie Walmsley, digital channel manager, Zodiak Kids, will manage both ZeeKay and ZeeKay Junior.
