Bento Box Entertainment (BBE) and National Geographic Kids (NG Kids) have formalized an agreement to co-manage and program a three-hour Saturday morning block of Spanish-language programming on MundoFOX, the newly launched Spanish-language domestic broadcast network. The content is EI (educational and informational) compliant. It expands the original pact between the National Geographic Society and MundoFOX to brand the three-hour EI block “National Geographic Kids.” BBE and NG Kids will be partners in the venture.
NG Kids is providing over 70 hours of Spanish-language programming as well as the use of the NG Kids brand and the expertise of its creative team. BBE will bring project development, production services and creative direction to the deal. Together, BBE and NG Kids will manage and oversee all programming for the block and continue to build the content library through acquisitions and original productions.
