3net keen on kids series

Young cabler orders two animated series for weekend

Fledgling 3D cabler 3net is stocking up on kidvid with several new programming deals.

The network, Discovery Communications’ joint venture with Sony and Imax, has ordered two animated 3D kidvid series for its weekend programming block that includes animated series “Bolts & Blip” and “Dream Defenders.” Those series will preem in primetime on Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. before moving to their regular time slot of 10-11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The net has ordered 26 half-hours for each show.

“Bolts & Blip” follows the titular pair of robot buddies, who are both anxious to become battle-bots so that they can play in the Lunar League of Robot Sports. Series is produced by ToonBox Entertainment in partnership with South Korean shingle Red Rover Co. Ltd.

Tiny Island’s “Dream Defenders” tracks the progress of Zane and Zoey, twins who defend the universe from the nightmarish creatures of Dreamworld and its ruler, Icela.

The network will also show Sony Pictures kidpics in 3D, though it did not say what titles or when. Along with the cartoon programming deals, the net will air live-action series “Feeding Time” and “Puppy Bowl,” as well as short-form content.
