We are committed to creating creator-driven content that challenges, empowers, educates and entertains children – always grounded in answering… Why this show? Why now? We identify and collaborate with the best creative talent to ensure that each property is distinct, signature, breakthrough and resourced correctly.

Child Development Expertise

Working with expert consultants in their respective fields, we advise on all facets of content from curriculum development to scripting to production. Our signature formative research approach is fundamental in creating programming that is both appealing and beneficial for our young audience.

Creative Continuity

The Creative Affairs team serves as in-house creative executives in charge for each series, actively involved from pitch to post, to ensure all decisions align with and deliver on the overall vision and goals of the series, the network/ broadcaster expectations and connect with the intended audience.


With a strong creative vision, a creator forward approach, a kid-first mentality and a tested research process, broadcasters are assured that our series will have high benefit, appeal and engagement. We have a track record of hit properties with proven impact to both caregivers and kids.
