Genius Brands International’s hit preschool series, Rainbow Rangers is all set to launch across Latin america on Nickelodeon’s Nick Jr. channel and its Noggin mobile streaming app. Nickelodeon Latin America has licensed season one (52 x 11’) of the series to debut in August on the Nick Jr. channel, and available to stream beginning in June on its NOGGIN preschool mobile app. Rainbow Rangers will be dubbed in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.
Rainbow Rangers is a rescue-based series following the adventures of seven girls who are Earth’s first responders, protecting people, animals, resources, and the natural beauty of our world. Since premiering on Nickelodeon’s Nick Jr. in the U.S. in November 2018, the series, which airs Monday through Friday in the afternoon, and on Sunday mornings, has consistently retained its audience and grown from its lead-in shows across a variety of different time periods in which it has been placed for broadcast. Rainbow Rangers continues to garner top ratings in the key demos of girls and boys ages 2 – 5 and 6 – 11.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Nickelodeon beyond the U.S. to bring this much-loved series to children throughout Latin America for the first time,” said Andy Heyward, Chairman & CEO of Genius Brands. “Girls and boys across the U.S. are being entertained and inspired by our characters and empowering storylines, and Latin America is a first stop to deliver the fun and excitement of Rainbow Rangers to children worldwide.”
“We are excited to add Rainbow Rangers to Nick Jr. and Noggin’s roster of hit content,” commented Migdalis Silva, Vice President of Programming and Acquisitions for Nickelodeon Latin America. “This colorful and magical series is sure to captivate our preschool audience with its engaging characters and their thrilling adventures while creating awareness about environmental responsibility. We look forward to the success of the series on Nick’s platforms in the region.”
