The three-hour block will feature programming tailored specifically to preschool age children and include series “The Wiggles,” “Noodle & Doodle,” Jim Henson’s “Pajanimals,” “Poppy Cat,” “Justin Time” and “Lazy Town.” The block is programmed in partnership with the Sprout, the 24-hour preschool TV network.

“Producing this new block for NBC will extend the reach of quality preschool programming beyond Sprout’s cable, VOD and digital platforms affording millions of families the opportunity to watch quality preschool series that promote active, healthy lifestyles,” says Sandy Wax, president, Sprout.
