Pocket.watch unveiled plans to expand kids’ television series “Ryan’s Mystery Playdate” to international markets, beginning with Amazon FreeTime Unlimited in Germany. The show has been picked up for a fourth season by Nickelodeon amid strong ratings throughout the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia.
“We’re thrilled to be deepening our partnership with Amazon to bring ‘Ryan’s Mystery Playdate’ to kids and families on a global level,” says Thanda Belker, senior vice president, distribution, pocket.watch. “As we continue to further our mission to be everywhere kids and families are, ‘Ryan’s Mystery Playdate’ has continued to prove the success of a creator-focused franchise, with unlimited viability across platforms including TV and games.”
“Ryan’s Mystery Playdate” seasons 1 and 2 will be available for the first time in Germany starting July in English and August in Germany on the Amazon FreeTime Unlimited streaming services, with season 3 becoming available in October.
“We are excited to bring ‘Ryan’s Mystery Playdate’ to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, our service that delivers premium, fun and educational content for kids,” says Kurt Beidler, general manager, Amazon Kids & Family. “Kids around the world love following along on Ryan’s adventures, and we’re pleased to offer more of that content to families in Germany.”
In addition, pocket.watch’s gaming division, p.w Games, will also be launching a new “Ryan’s Mystery Playdate”-themed mobile game called “Blast,” which allows fans to join Ryan in discovering the next mystery playdate by solving puzzles. The game will tie in familiar elements of the TV show such as unlocking mystery boxes, spinning the mystery wheel and dropping the “hintamajig.” It will launch this fall through pocket.watch’s gaming division p.w Games.
