Corus and Discovery announce new venture to produce kids content

Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana and Discovery Communications announced the formation of a new venture to produce a new pipeline of content for the kids’ market in Canada, Latin America, and around the world.

Based in Canada, the yet-to-be named venture is dedicated to the production of premium children’s content across linear and digital platforms. It combines the strength of the hugely successful Discovery Kids business in Latin America, and Corus’ high-ranking suite of kids’ channels in Canada, the companies explained in a press release.

“Corus and Nelvana are fantastic businesses with a venerable track-record of creating world-class properties. Together, this agreement furthers our role in the premium kids’ content creation business so we can co-produce and distribute fun and entertaining programs for kids and families across all screens,” said Carolina Lightcap, EVP & Chief Content Officer at Discovery Latin America.
