Multiplatform content company Skybound Entertainment and leading global childrenâ€™s entertainment company Spin Master Ltd. (TSX:TOY; www.spinmaster.com) will bring childrenâ€™s adventure series Super Dinosaur to Amazon Prime Video on October 6. All of season one part one, consisting of 13 x 30-minute episodes, will be available on the showâ€™s launch day.
Spin Master has also struck a raft of international broadcast deals, which include ABC Australia, Television New Zealand TVNZ, Discovery Latin America, iQIYI, and NOGA-Communications Israel.
Based on the Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard Skybound/Image comic book of the same name, Super Dinosaur follows 10-year-old genius Derek Dynamo and his T-Rex best friend Super Dinosaur as they protect the planet against evil. The series is produced by Spin Master Entertainment and Skybound North/Wind Sun Sky, the Vancouver-based division of Skybound. Season one previously aired on Teletoon in Canada.
â€œJason Howard and I created Super Dinosaur as something all kids would enjoy as much as our own kids do. In doing so we were able to craft a world as immersive and engaging as the world of The Walking Dead… but for kids! Our partners at Spin Master have helped Skybound prepare this world for a mass-audience and I’m so happy this series has landed at Amazon where I know it will thrive,â€ said Robert Kirkman, creator of Super Dinosaur and The Walking Dead, and Chairman at Skybound Entertainment.
â€œThese new sales agreements for China, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and Israel highlight the global appetite for Spin Masterâ€™s action-packed content. We are confident that children all over the globe will find the characters and storylines of Super Dinosaur exciting and hilarious,â€ said Thom Chapman, Senior Director, Sales and Distribution at Spin Master Entertainment.
In addition to the television series, Skybound and Spin Master will launch a toy line featuring key characters from the world of Super Dinosaur this fall, available on Amazon in the US and exclusively at Toys â€˜R Us in Canada.
