Federation Kids and Family has inked a deal with WarnerMedia-owned HBO Max for children’s animated comedy series “Squish.”
All 52 episodes of the series have been sold to HBO Max. The series, produced by Cottonwood Media and Planeta Junior, was previously commissioned by Gulli and has sold to international broadcasters including VRT and RTBF (Belgium), Wow and Quebecor (Canada), Hop TV (Israel), Tooniverse (Korea), NEOX (Atresmedia in Spain).
“We are delighted to announce our first deal with HBO Max, a great partner and superb platform for ‘Squish,’” says Monica Levy, head, sales, Federation Kids and Family. “This unique slapstick comedy is perfectly timed as younger viewers try to navigate their way through this pandemic, especially as all the central characters in the series are extremely ‘endearing’ amoeba, viruses and bacteria.”
“Squish” is based on the original books by New York Times best-selling authors Jennifer and Matthew Holm. The series is about everyday school kids, their friendships, parents, and efforts to fit in, centering on twinkie-eating grade school amoeba and their various adventures.
