Jon Rutherford, managing director and president rights, Boat Rocker Studios, said: “We are delighted to be working with Disney on Dino Ranch as it is the perfect platform to help us launch this entertaining new show in the US. Matt’s unique vision of combining cowboys/cowgirls and dinosaurs has huge global appeal, and we look forward to building Dino Ranch into a global franchise!”
