Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana and Discovery, Inc. officially launched redknot as their joint venture. The company appointed former Spin Master Entertainment exec Patricia Burns (PAW Patrol, Bakugan: Battle Plantet, Hatchimals) as executive manager and supervising producer. The first two series to receive a green light under redknot are The Dog & Pony Show and Agent Binky: Pets of the Universe.
According to redknot, The Dog & Pony Show (52, 11-minute episodes) focuses on the friendship between two very different best friends, Dog and Pony, who embark on hilarious and unexpected adventures when they move to the big city from Rainbow Fjord. As they embark on the adventure of growing up and exploring their new world, things in SimpliCity turn from ordinary to extraordinary. The series was created by Little Airplane Productions founder and CEO Josh Selig and is produced by Burns.
Agent Binky: Pets of the Universe (52, 11-minute episodes) is a new 3D-animated series following the adventures of Binky, a house cat with a curious and imaginative mind. Binky thinks he is a space cat on a mission to protect his human family from the biggest threat — alien attacks! With the help of his fellow P.U.R.S.T. agents (Pets of the Universe Ready for Space Travel), Binky will do anything to protect his humans from danger. The series is based on the acclaimed Kids Can Press graphic novels, written and illustrated by Ashley Spires.
Both series will air on Discovery Kids Latin America and Treehouse Canada.
