The series follows the adventures of a group of kids led by 8-year-old Rev and his best friend, Rumble — a rambunctious, powerful truck with a puppy personality — in the town of Fender Bend, where everyone has a four-wheeled buddy at their side. WildBrain inked distribution deals with more than 40 broadcasters to air and/or stream the series in more than 25 territories around the globe.
A toy line from Alpha Group is rolling out globally following an early debut in China. WildBrain plans to amplify interest in the toys with a series of stop-motion and play videos that will be created by WildBrain Spark.
The first season of Rev & Roll is available on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. and Canada. It streams in the UK via Prime Video Direct, and new deals will bring the series to SUPER RTL (Germany), TF1 (France), Turner’s Cartoonito (Italy), Karusel (Russia), TV Azteca (Mexico), and Channel 9 (Australia), among other top broadcasters. Audiences in China can find the series on CCTV-14, JiaJia Cartoon, Youman Cartoon, Golden Eagle Cartoon, Haxuan Cartoon, and on SVOD platforms including Tencent, IQIYI, YOUKU, and Mango TV. Additionally, kids can catch Rev & Roll streaming on YouTube, YouTube Kids, Tubi, Pluto TV, XUMO, Ketchup TV, Crackle, and The Roku Channel in select markets.
“The response to Rev & Roll from broadcasters and streamers across the globe has been outstanding,” says Josh Scherba, president, WildBrain. “This is a fantastic series for kids, filled with adventure, friendship, and fun, and we’re thrilled it’s rolling out in so many territories. Bolstered by its strong performance on our WildBrain Spark YouTube network, we think Rev & Roll has excellent potential as a global brand, and we’re equally excited about the toy program rolling out from Alpha Group.”
