9 Story Distribution Licenses Animated Preschool Series Dylan’s Playtime Adventures to CBeebies

DUBLIN – February 14, 2024 – 9 Story Distribution International is pleased to announce that its new animated preschool series Dylan’s Playtime Adventures (52 x11 min) has been licensed to CBeebies, slated to air this fall. Produced by 9 Story Media Group and animated by its award-winning studio Brown Bag Films in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery and CBC Kids, Dylan’s Playtime Adventures is based on the Scholastic book series by bestselling author/illustrator Guy Parker-Rees. The series will premiere this spring on CBC Kids and is expected to launch on Cartoonito (US) in the near future.

9 Story Distribution International holds worldwide distribution rights for the series and 9 Story Brands has worldwide consumer products rights, excluding publishing.

Dylan’s Playtime Adventures features both 2D and CG animation and follows a highly imaginative, multi-colored striped dog who is eager to role-play every career, from a doctor to a hair stylist to a sea captain. With just some basic props and some great friends, Dylan transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary, jumping feet first into every adventure that comes his way.

“We are thrilled to see Dylan’s Playtime Adventures join the BBC Children’s lineup,” said Joss Duffield, VP Distribution, EMEA. “Fueled by creativity, this highly interactive program empowers and encourages kids to trust their hearts, imaginations, and each other. We look forward to seeing Dylan delight and captivate CBeebies’ viewers later this year!”
