9 Story Media Group has entered a new content partnership with media conglomerate Beijing Sunshine Culture and Communication that will see The Fred Rogers Company/9 Story coproductions Peg + Cat and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood launch in China.

Sunshine Culture and Communication has acquired all rights within the region for the acclaimed preschool series.

Marking its first major foray into the territory, 9 Story will now look to bring its portfolio of kids content to China through Sunshine’s network of partners.

Peg + Cat launched on PBS KIDS in 2013 and has since been acquired by a number of global broadcasters, including a pick-up earlier this year by Discovery Kids for Latin America. The series also has a new licensing deal for publishing, and production recently started on the second season of the show.

Also a globetrotter, The Fred Rogers Company/9 Story Media/Out of the Blue copro Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood launched in 2012 on PBS KIDS in the U.S. and CBC in Canada. It continues to expand globally with new licensing deals, including five new licensees for its U.S. consumer products program.
