Paw Patrol to Have its Worldwide Debut on Nickelodeon on August 12th, 2013
Spin Master Entertainment, in association with Nickelodeon, launches its first solely owned intellectual property, Paw Patrol. Paw Patrol, based on a concept by Keith Chapman, (Bob the Builder) and with animation from Guru Studio (The Backyardigans and Justin Time), is set to premiere Monday, Aug. 12 on Nickelodeon in the U.S., followed by the Canadian premiere on TVO and Knowledge Network on September 2nd. The series will begin airing on Nickelodeon’s international channels in the fall.
Paw Patrol is a CG-animated series starring a pack of six heroic puppies -- Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma and Skye -- who are led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder. The series curriculum focuses on citizenship, social skills and problem-solving. The Paw Patrol work together to protect the Adventure Bay community believing that “No job is too big, no pup is too small!”
"With our new series Paw Patrol, Spin Master Entertainment is entering the preschool space in a big way. We've put together what we believe to be the best creative minds in preschool to bring our heroic puppies and the world of Adventure Bay to life.” Jennifer Dodge, VP of Spin Master Entertainment and Executive Producer of the series continues with, “We're extraordinarily excited to announce TVO and Knowledge Network as our broadcasters in Canada as well as our worldwide broadcast partnership with Nickelodeon.”
Keith Chapman, who conceived Paw Patrol states, "I am thrilled and honored to be involved in the creation of Paw Patrol with Spin Master. It is the perfect show for young children, who will love to follow the adventures of a heroic boy and his team of rescue pups helping those in need. It's aspirational, hi-tech, exciting, highly entertaining and the pups are simply adorable! Additionally, the animation, by Toronto based Guru Studio, is fantastic; beautifully observed and superbly crafted. The stories are timeless, wonderfully written and filled with humor and warmth. I think Paw Patrol has what it takes to become the next big breakout pre-school show.”
Spin Master is responsible for producing and distributing Paw Patrol in Canada through broadcast partners TVO and Knowledge Network as well as owning the worldwide toy rights. Nickelodeon licensed from Spin Master the global (excluding Canada) distribution rights for the show on behalf of Viacom International as well as all ancillary exploitation rights, including licensing and merchandising.
