DeAPlaneta Entertainment and PBS, the American public broadcaster, have signed a deal to distribute Milo, the award-winning and successful preschool series co-produced by Fourth Wall (UK) and DeAPlaneta Entertainment. Milo, which is already broadcasted on more than 170 countries and has been dubbed into more than 20 languages, will arrive to PBS KIDS and its free streaming platforms on May 2024. Milo will also be available to stream on the PBS KIDS Prime Video Channel.


Diego Ibáñez Belaustegui, Chief Brand Officer at DeAPlaneta Kids & Family, has declared: “We can think of no better partner to bring Milo to U.S.-based audiences than PBS KIDS, one of the most relevant kids’ networks in the world, which shares with us the commitment to delivering exceptional content to young audiences and families. This is a key agreement for the global expansion of our beloved series Milo, which in 2024 will be on air in more than 170 countries, among other destinations yet to be announced.”


“We’re excited to bring the playful, curious world of Milo to our audiences at PBS KIDS,” said Adriano Schmid, Vice President, PBS KIDS Content. “We hope that Milo’s energy, sense of wonder, and desire to explore a variety of jobs will open up a world of possibilities for kids across the country, helping them discover new interests and passions along the way.”


Milo, whose second season is already broadcasting in the UK (Milkshake) and will be broadcasted worldwide in Fall 2024, is an animated series for preschool audiences with a bright, colourful look that brings a very contemporary graphic style to young children. Accompanied by his good friends Lofty and Lark, Milo uses role play to explore the wonderful world of vocations – from doctors and mechanics, to hairdressers, chefs and postal workers, introducing pre-schoolers to a variety of professions in a positive, fun way. The series’ underlying message is that all jobs are INCREDIBLE. The quality of the animation and relevance of its message helped Milo win the prize to Best Children’s series at the prestigious British Animation Awards in 2022, and Bronze at the New York Festivals TV & Film Awards that same year. This year, Milo is one of the finalists in the Best International Animated Series category at 2024 British Animation Awards, which will take place on March 7 at London’s BFI Southbank. DeAPlaneta Entertainment launched recently the official App of Milo, which is currently available worldwide in five languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian and Portuguese.
