eOne has revealed that its new pre-school animated series, PJ Masks, will receive its broadcast debut on Disney Channel and Disney Junior in the US on September 18th this year.
The series is based on Romuald Racioppo’s picture book series Les Pyjamasques, which has seen 15 titles published in France to date.
Oliver Dumont, managing director of eOne family, comments: “Our new landmark property, PJ Masks, brings popular superhero themes to a pre-school audience and we’re incredibly excited about the upcoming premiere on Disney Junior and France 5.
This property exemplifies what we’re really trying to do with our overall offering. We’re creating highly sought-after original content with global multi-platform potential.”
Hélène Etzi, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Channels EMEA, comments: “Helping to bring this series to life in collaboration with Frog Box, eOne and TeamTO underlines our commitment to creating and sourcing the very best content for kids that not only works on a local level, but a global basis too, no matter where the ideas and stories are created.”
Following its US debut, PJ Masks will broadcast on France 5 in France later this autumn, and will roll out on the Disney Junior channels around the world from 2016.
