Big Idea Series Launch on NBC, Telemundo, and i network
Big Idea’s “VeggieTales” will launch this fall in a regular time slot on NBC, Telemundo, and the i network (formerly PAX) as part of the new qubo programming block. qubo is a new multi-platform television network for children that champions literacy and positive values through entertainment. qubo was created when NBC Universal, Scholastic, Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, and Classic Media/Big Idea joined forces in May with the national TV distribution systems of ION Media Networks, NBC, and Telemundo. “VeggieTales,” “3-2-1 Penguins!” and “2D LarryBoy Adventures” will be included in the programming block on NBC and i network, and will also debut in Spanish on Telemundo. “VeggieTales” creator Phil Vischer is producing the 30-minute “VeggieTales” episodes, which have been tailored to meet NBC’s programming guidelines and national educational and informational standards for children’s programming. The Big Idea programming will premiere on NBC and Telemundo on Saturday morning, Sept. 9, and i network on Friday afternoon, Sept. 15. Future qubo offerings include a 24/7 digital broadcast kids channel, video on demand, and a branded Web site.
