Toronto, Canada – Tricon Films & Television has acquired Kavaleer Productions’ new animated preschool ecology adventure series Wildernuts (26 x 7′), produced in association with Bord Scannán na hÉireann / Irish Film Board, RTÉ (RTÉ Junior) and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland’s Sound & Vision fund.  This announcement comes as Tricon officially unveils its new Tricon Kids & Family division, which will feature both acquired content and new projects in development.  

“The launch of Tricon Kids & Family is a natural next step as we expand our children’s content in all genres, both in production and distribution,” said Jon Rutherford, SVP Distribution & Business Development. “Wildernuts’ charming way of exploring the wonders of the world will engage children everywhere and is a perfect fit for our new division.”
