Boat Rocker Studios’ #1 U.S. preschool series ‘Dino Ranch’ lassoed by Disney+ in the UK, Ireland, Australia & New Zealand
Boat Rocker Studios (a division of global entertainment company Boat Rocker Media) has announced that Disney+ UK, Ireland, Australia & New Zealand have picked up Dino Ranch.
These new deals follow the stellar ratings on Disney Junior U.S. that the 52 x 11’ 3D animated preschool show has garnered. Set in a “pre-westoric” setting where dinosaurs still roam, Dino Ranch was an instant hit with its target audience after its debut on Disney Junior and DisneyNOW in the US on 18 January and CBC (Canada) on 16 January. The series is set to launch on the Disney+ streaming platform in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand in April 2021.
Eventually, Dino Ranch became the #1 US cable series among kids aged two to five. Among Disney Junior repeats too, Dino Ranch retains its top position. Also available on DisneyNOW and VOD, Dino Ranch has been the #3 Disney Junior long-form series for three consecutive weeks. Two episodes that have been made live on Disney Junior’s YouTube channel – Big Jon, Big Trouble and Spookasaurus – have amassed over 1.5 million views collectively. In the six weeks since the launch on YouTube, the official Dino Ranch channel has accumulated over three million views.
Created by Matt Fernandes of Industrial Brothers and produced by Industrial Brothers and Boat Rocker Studios, Dino Ranch follows the action-packed exploits of the Cassidy family, ranchers with a difference – their charges are dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes who are also their best friends. As the three adopted young Cassidy rancheroos – Jon, Min and Miguel, learn the ropes, they discover the exciting adventure involved in ranch life, and tending to the dinosaur sanctuary, whilst navigating their ultimate playground – the great outdoors.
This thrill-a-minute series, packed with comedy, mischievous fun, and introduces preschoolers and their parents to a place where they can discover the exhilarating blend of dinosaurs, ranch life for themselves, set-in wide-open plains. The series also highlights the value of hard work, and commitment to teamwork as they pull together to look after the dinosaurs on the working farm.
The deals follow recent global sales of Dino Ranch to Super RTL/Toggo Plus (Germany), Gulli plus TiJi and Gulli Africa (France), NRK (Norway), YLE (Finland) and DR (Denmark).
Boat Rocker Studios is managing global content distribution and global merchandising rights to the series.
