Nick US catches up with eOne’s Ricky Zoom

Ricky Zoom will launch on Nickelodeon next month

Nickelodeon has boarded Entertainment One (eOne)’s new animated preschool show Ricky Zoom as a US broadcast partner.

The CGI animated series, which follows the adventures of a little red motorbike, will make its debut on Nickelodeon stateside on September 9.

Transatlantic producer-distributor eOne, which is behind kids’ series including Peppa Pig and PJ Masks, will also launch an official app called Ricky Zoom: Welcome to Wheelford to allow fans to engage with the characters between episodes.

Super RTL in Germany, Clan TV in Spain and Chinese VoD platform Youku picked up the show from eOne in March, joining previous buyers Gulli in France, Rai in Italy and Discovery Kids in Latin America.

eOne recently hired former Disney Channels exec Kate Morton as director of content and strategy at its family and brands division, as revealed by C21.
