Scott Brothers Entertainment partners with Sinking Ship Entertainment on animated pre-school series Builder Brothers’ Dream Factory

From a media release:

Sinking Ship Entertainment and Scott Brothers Entertainment are pleased to announce a deal to co-develop a new preschool animated series, Builder Brothers’ Dream Factory, based on HGTV stars and New York Times bestselling authors, Drew and Jonathan Scott, or as they are most commonly known, the Property Brothers. The series will be distributed by Sinking Ship Entertainment’s growing distribution arm.

Builder Brothers’ Dream Factory centers around 10-year-old twins, Drew and Jonathan. A pair of regular kids whose extraordinary imagination, creativity, grit and heart – coupled with a big dose of “twin-spiration” – help solve problems in their neighborhood by dreaming big…..really big…sometimes too big! Along with their dog Moose and best friends Mel, Cee-Cee and Aiden, the Builder Brothers navigate the highs and lows of trying to make the world a better place – one big dream at a time.

Though it’s a character-driven comedy series at heart, the series doesn’t shy away from real kids’ issues and what they go through in navigating life’s ups and downs. It encourages kids to share their ideas, dream big, and not to be disheartened. That element of resilience and problem-solving is what sets the show apart.

Sinking Ship Entertainment in production on Season 2 of Endlings

From a media release:

Sinking Ship Entertainment announced today that it has launched production on season two of the highly anticipated sci-fi adventure series Endlings.  Season two will consist of 12 all-new episodes, with creator J.J. Johnson returning as director, writer and executive producer, alongside writer and executive producer Christin Simms.

The second season of the action-packed, intergalactic show for families is currently filming on location in Guelph, Ontario.  Set to return are stars Cale Thomas Ferrin, Edison Grant, Kamaia Fairburn, Michela Luci, Lisa Ryder, Neil Crone and Oyin Oladejo.

In Endlings season two, Johnny (Edison Grant), Julia (Kamaia Fairburn), Tabby (Michela Luci) and Finn (Cale Thomas Ferrin) face the fact that while their past cannot be changed, their future is still within their grasp. They learn to face their fears, and together they fight to change the future. It’s a fight that if they win, will save their lives and the planet as well.

About Endlings Season One
Set 20 years in the future, Endlings is the empowering story of four kids in foster care who discover they’re not alone in the universe, even though sometimes it can feel like they are.

Halfway across the world, following the death of her mate, Tuko becomes the last elephant in existence – what biologists call an Endling. Her endling status summons to Earth a mysterious Alien who is on an intergalactic quest to save the last member of near-extinct species. After Tuko is collected, the Alien’s ship malfunctions and sends it on a crash course with the farm where Julia (Kamaia Fairburn), Johnny (Edison Grant), Tabby (Michela Luci) and Finn (Cale Thomas Ferrin) live with their foster dad, Mr. Leopold (Neil Crone). Before crashing, the Alien releases all of its cosmic collection into the fields and wilderness surrounding the property. This kicks off a high-action life-altering mission to retrieve these fantastical creatures before the local police, Tuko’s caretaker (Oyin Oladejo) or a secretive industrialist (Lisa Ryder) can. Along the way, four discarded kids discover that “endling” doesn’t have to mean the end. It can also mean a new beginning.

The first season of Endlings will launch with nine international broadcast partners including Hulu and Universal Kids in the US, CBC and SRC in Canada, CBBC in the UK, NDR in Germany, ABC in Australia, SVT in Sweden, NRK in Norway, and Gloob in Brazil. The first season of 12 X 22’ will be available for international broadcasters in 2020.
