Entertainment One has announced that “Ricky Zoom” will air on Nick Jr. and Channel 5’s pre-school programming block, Milkshake!
The series will debut on Oct. 5 on Nick Jr. before speeding over to Milkshake! in May 2020. Both U.K. channels join previously announced broadcast partners for “Ricky Zoom” that include Minika Cocuk, Spacetoon and Nick in the U.S.
“The U.K. is an integral part of the international rollout of Ricky Zoom,” says Monica Candiani, executive vice president international content sales, family and brands, eOne. “Nick Jr. and Milkshake! have been our partners for 15 years with ‘Peppa Pig’ and 10 years of Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom and have a strong reputation for delivering top-tier programming in this crucial market. These new broadcast partnerships reflect our commitment to reaching audiences on the very best platforms, and we’re confident that the show’s themes of vehicles, adventure and teamwork will resonate strongly with British preschoolers.”
The preschool show follows red rescue motorbike Ricky Zoom and his bike friends Loop, Scootio and DJ as they race around sports tracks and experience adventures around the globe.
