Rescue Bots Academy Moves To Air Fall 2018 on Discovery Family, Targets (Even) Younger Audiences
has posted an update for Rescue Bots Academy
in their most recent Kids TV update, and we've got some new information: the series has been moved up, and will begin airing on Discovery Family in the US fall of this year! The series is described by Discovery Family VP Angela Sondon
as “the same concept as Transformers Rescue Bots but more skewed to a preschool audience," so be ready for an even younger version of the same show. Keep reading for a link to the original article!
Family co-viewing remains top of mind, Angela Sondon, VP at Discovery Family, tells CynKids. “Our biggest emphasis always is the type of content that targets the kids during the daytime but that parents will sit and watch with their kids,” says Sondon. “And then in primetime, we skew female so shows moms would watch and be perfectly comfortable if their kids came and watched with them.”
Season 8 of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic premieres Saturday, March 24 at 11:30a, with two back-to-back episodes. “We’re excited because this season picks up where the movie last year left off, and we have six new characters,” Sondon says. Up next is the newest incarnation of Littlest Pet Shop, A World of Our Own, bows April 14 at noon. Transformers Rescue Bots Academy – which Sondon describes as “the same concept as Transformers Rescue Bots but more skewed to a preschool audience” – is slated to bow in the fall.
