Blue Ant Media will add YFE's original content to ZooMoo Networks, its interactive, children's nature broadcaster. ZooMoo's program portfolio combines spectacular wildlife footage with puppetry, animations and narration, providing a unique viewing and learning experience for preschool viewers. ZooMoo will feature select programming from YFE's award-winning library including animated childrens series Gloria's House, which features a strong-willed little girl and her cat and Albert Says: Nature Knows Best, which teaches kids about nature and the environment. ZooMoo's audience will also have access to kids comedic series Bob's Beach, which is about a city dog, shipwrecked on a deserted island and Urmel, based on the famous German YA novel.
Likewise, YFE will broadcast a great selection of ZooMoo's catalogue on its international kids- and family pay-TV channels, Fix&Foxi and RiC, including the award-winning, live action series, Kooki's Crafty Show, which will introduce YFE's audience to a wacky, peppy red panda who inspires kids to unleash the wild side of their creativity and the animated series Jelly Jamm, which celebrates music, fun and friendship. Additional ZooMoo series available to YFE through this partnership include: live action, puppetry and VFX series, Animal Alphabet, where kids have fun identifying which letter of the alphabet different animals begin with; Growing Up a live action and animated series featuring Flutter, a baby caterpillar, who likes to watch other animals grow up; and Move It, which inspires kids to dance like their favourite animal with catchy educational songs via puppetry and animation..
Through this partnership, YFE and ZooMoo leverage the strong synergies in their high quality standards as well as their philosophy for premium, educational and entertaining content aired on their respective kids and family channels.
Bernd Wendeln, COO of Munich-based Your Family Entertainment AG, is delighted about the new partnership: "We are proud to introduce the ZooMoo animal world to our international audience as it fits perfectly with our kids-safe ecosystem. We trust that this is the start of a long and fruitful cooperation and friendship!"
