ABC Commercial reaches agreement with TVO to bring trio of ABC ME children’s series to Canada


ABC Commercial today announced it has reached a new agreement with TVO, an Ontario digital learning and media organization, to bring an exciting new range of Australian children’s series to audiences in Ontario, Canada.

The agreement will see a trio of acclaimed ABC ME titles exclusively join the TVOkids programming line-up later this year, including Create, What’s For Dinner and Pet Superstars. The three series will also be available to stream in Canada at and the TVOkids YouTube Channel.

Inspiring childhood inventiveness and imagination, Create (80 x 3’) follows a pair of expert hands filmed from a bird’s eye view as they perform various arts and crafts, with helpful tips provided throughout each episode for children to follow along at home.
Showcasing the significance of cultural diversity, What’s For Dinner (5 x 10’) sees Australian families from a variety of backgrounds each preparing a family dinner. Episodes offer children the opportunity to learn about different cultures and their traditions, celebrating the ingredients that make different families special.

With humour and heart, Pet Superstars (17 x 4’) goes inside the homes of kids to experience the love and chaos surrounding their relationships with their pets. Featuring domestic tabbies and miniature goats, the series explores the importance of unconditional love and companionship.

“ABC Commercial is excited to be working with the TVOkids team to bring these fun and imaginative children’s series to families in Ontario,” said Jessica Ellis, Head of Content Sales & Distribution at ABC Commercial. “ABC ME has had such great success with these programmes locally in Australia and we’re certain they’ll be just as eagerly received in Canada.”

“TVOkids is proud to present programming that helps young audiences to understand how children from around the world are just like their friends and neighbours here at home,” said Marney Malabar, Director, Kids TV, TVO. “It is fun series like these that help children to explore the importance of positive, loving relationships; the celebration of cultural differences; and the power of creativity and problem solving.”

Create, What’s For Dinner and Pet Superstars will premiere on TVOkids and later this year.
