Apple TV+ has ordered “Sago Mini Friends,” a new preschool animated series.
Produced by Spin Master Entertainment (“Paw Patrol”) and animated by Brown Bag Films (”Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” “Blue’s Clues & You!” and “Wild Kratts”), the series is based on the characters and designs featured in the Sago Mini World app, developed by Sago Mini.
The “Sago Mini Friends” series is a nod to gratitude, featuring Harvey the floppy-eared dog and his best friends Jinja the cat, Jack the rabbit and Robin the bird. The four friends play, explore, imagine and celebrate daily in their joyful town of Sagoville. In each episode, Harvey and all his friends express their true thankfulness for all things, big and small, through optimism, kindness, preschool-friendly humor and original songs.
The Sago Mini World app features more than 40 games for kids ages 2-5 and has been recognized by the Parents’ Choice Gold Awards, the Webby Awards, the Academics’ Choice Awards and the Kidscreen Awards.
“Sago Mini Friends” is executive produced by Jennifer Dodge (“Paw Patrol”), Ronnen Harary (“Paw Patrol”), Tone Thyne (“Wonder Pets!”) and Dustin Ferrer (“Esme & Roy”). Laura Clunie (“Paw Patrol”) and Toni Stevens (“Paw Patrol”) serve as co-executive producers, with Chad Hicks (“Kingdom Force”) as series director.
