Another Spin Master property is getting animated.
Spin Master Entertainment (PAW Patrol: The Movie) and 9 Story Media Group’s Brown Bag Films – Toronto (Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Blue’s Clues & You!) are ramping up production on Sago Mini Friends, a new, preschool animated series for Apple Originals that will stream on Apple TV+. The series is based on the Sago Mini World app from Spin Master’s digital arm.
The new series follows the adventures of Harvey the floppy-eared dog and his best friends, Jinja the cat, Jack the rabbit, and Robin the bird. Sago Mini Friends will showcase the power of gratitude and thankfulness through optimism, kindness, humor, and original music.
Sago Mini Friends is executive produced by Spin Master’s Jennifer Dodge (PAW Patrol) and Ronnen Harary (PAW Patrol) alongside Tone Thyne (Wonder Pets!), and Dustin Ferrer (Esme & Roy). PAW Patrol‘s Laura Clunie and Toni Stevens serve as co-executive producers, with Chad Hicks (Kingdom Force) in the director’s chair.
Since its launch in 2019, Apple TV+ has been building a library of original kids and family content in partnership with several top studios and producers, including The Jim Henson Co., Sesame Workshop, Peanuts, and more.
