Vancouver-based Nerd Corps Entertainment, known for its action-adventure series such as Dragon BoostersStorm Hawks and League of Super Evil, is producing its first animated preschool animated series, a 26×22-minute CG show titled Kate and Mim-Mim. The show is created by the husband-and-wife team Scott and Julie Stewart.
Kate and Mim-Mim is a “character-driven comedy” targeted at kids aged three to six. The show show revolves around a five-year-old named Kate and a plush toy bunny named Mim-Mim, who can grow to ten times her size. Together, the duo travel to imaginary worlds.
Announced at the MIPCOM conference in France, Kate and Mim-Mim has a UK broadcast deal in place with CBeebies and FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) will coordinate the worldwide distribution and licensing rights outside of Canada.
Bob Higgins, FME’s Executive Vice President of Kids & Family Entertainment, said, “Nerd Corps are a hugely creative company and we’re thrilled to be a part of this series. Kate and Mim-Mim is the first of what we think will be many fantastic and fun preschool projects from Nerd Corps and we’re looking forward to introducing it to kids around the world.”
