STUDIO 100 MEDIA NAMES MACMILLAN CHILDREN’S BOOKS MASTER PUBLISHER FOR “VEGESAURS”

14 Sep - 2022

Studio 100 Media, one of the leading independent studios for kids & family entertainment, and Macmillan Children’s Books (UK) join forces on an exciting journey with the new preschool series ‘Vegesaurs’.

The publishing house has acquired all international rights (excluding Australia and New Zealand), in all languages for an extensive global publishing program, which will include a range of formats. The first publishing program is set to launch in Spring 2023 with two picture books, followed by two story board books in Summer 2023, with more to follow.
This agreement follows the recent broadcast deal with the BBC, which sees the launch of the CGI, comedy-adventure series (20 x 5’) on CBEEBIES and BBC iPlayer later this year in the UK. The series is produced by independent Australian producer Cheeky Little Media in association with the Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC), France TV and Studio 100.
‘Vegesaurs’ is an original take on the much-loved dinosaur genre, inviting preschool audiences into a unique and immersive world where healthy, natural foods come to life in the most playful and surprising ways. A unique cast of characters that promises to thrill young children includes Ginger the Tricarrotops, three baby Pea-Rexes, Broccolisaurus, Bananaraptors, and Chillipedes, among others. They all adventure through Vegesaur Valley introducing different fruit and vegetables to young children, building in comedy, imagination, and relatable preschool themes.

Nicole Pearson, Publishing Director, Brands and Media at Macmillan Children’s Books, says: “We are delighted to be working with Studio 100 Media on ‘Vegesaurs’ – the show is a fun and comedic twist on the beloved preschool topic of dinosaurs which will captivate young children with its engaging roster of characters and stories. We can’t wait to extend the adventures of Ginger the Tricarrotops and her friends into books.

Martin Krieger, CEO at Studio 100 Media, comments: “We are extremely happy to collaborate with Macmillan Children’s Books. As publishing partners, they are a perfect fit for this new brand. Macmillan shares a core ambition with Studio 100 Media to engage children with humorous stories and to offer support to families through soft learning and our publishing will reflect this. We look forward to developing our partnership in the coming years.
