Co-producers Sesame Workshop and Televisa have begun production on "Plaza Sésamo" season 13, which will introduce new character Gaby to Mexico.

The new 65x30 season will feature Gaby, a 4-year-old muppet, who is sweet, slightly timid and loves to sing. Programming will have a strong focus on conflict resolution and emphasize literacy and story telling. Season 13 is slated to debut this fall on Televisa and in January 2011 on Discovery Kids throughout Latin America.

"When producing a children's series that aims to equally engage and educate children and families, humor and creativity must be at the root of the process," says Javier Williams, executive producer. "It is thrilling to watch fresh new talent learning to master the art of feathers and fur, laughter and learning, as they join our mission to provide children throughout Mexico with a viewing experience unlike any other children's program. The team feels refreshed and vibrant, and so will the new season of 'Plaza Sésamo.'"

In related news, Sesame Workshop has paired with the Global Road Safety Partnership to create content and distribute material to promote positive behavior changes in road safety among young children and families.
