Daytime Emmys 2018: Guillermo Del Toro could follow his 2 Oscars for ‘The Shape of Water’ with 2nd Emmy for ‘Trollhunters’

Daytime Emmys 2018: Guillermo Del Toro could follow his 2 Oscars for ‘The Shape of Water’ with 2nd Emmy for ‘Trollhunters’
The Daytime Emmy nominations were announced on March 21, less than three weeks after the Oscars where “The Shape of Water” won Best Picture and Best Director, but already Guillermo Del Toro is eyeing more awards hardware. His Netflix animated series “Trollhunters” earned three Daytime Emmy bids, including Best Children’s Animated Series. As a producer of the series Del Toro would be a winner if it prevails. It would be his second Emmy in as many years.

The series follows a teenage boy who discovers a magic amulet that chooses him to become a Trollhunter who defends the world of humans and the world of trolls. It debuted its 26-episode first season in December 2016 and won six Daytime Emmys out of nine nominations in 2017. Those victories included a voice-acting prize for Kelsey Grammer and a directing award for Del Toro and Rodrigo Blaas. However, it ended up losing Best Special

Starz, HBO Lead The Way For Amazon’s Channel Subscription Service

Last December, Amazon launched an offering then known as the Streaming Partners Program, through which the digital retailers Prime members could add memberships to subscription-video on demand (Svod) platforms to their accounts by paying extra. A year later, that service is now known as Amazon Channels, and its users have delivered “millions” of subscriptions, according to a press release. The most-watched offering, per Amazon, is Starz, while HBO has been termed as Amazon Channels’ “fastest-growing” option.

These subscriptions aren’t free; to get Starz through Amazon, for example, Prime users must pay an additional $8.99 per month. That has not deterred customers, however, as they have signed up for channels to receive access to hit shows like Shameless (available through Amazon’s Showtime subscription) and the children’s program Wild Kratts (available through PBS Kids). Additional channels, such as BeFit and Acorn TV, have brought more niche offerings to Amazon’s package.

Amazon and PBS Come To Svod Deal

PBS and Amazon have come to a deal that will see Amazon Prime become the subscription-video-on-demand home for the bulk of PBS' kids programming. The companies did not disclose the terms of what they said was a "multi-year" agreement.

The shows will continue to air first on PBS stations, then be available on Amazon after a certain period of time. The new deal does not include future series that PBS may introduce, while some of the network's popular programs stream elsewhere such as "Super Why" which remains at Netflix and "Curious George" at Hulu.

The agreement gives Amazon streaming rights to nineteen series overall, ranging from relatively new launches like "Nature Cat," "Ready Jet Go," "Odd Squad," "Peg + Cat" and "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood"; to mainstays such as "Wild Kratts," "Martha Speaks," "Dinosaur Train" and "Cyberchase"; to classics including "Reading Rainbow," "Caillou" and "Fetch! With Ruff Ruffman." Also included in the pact are "Design Squad,

PBS To Launch New TV Channel, 24-Hour Digital Live Stream Exclusively For Kids’ Content

PBS said it is poised to launch a 24-hour kids-centric television channel called PBS Kids later this year whose content will also be livestreamed on a plethora of digital platforms. It’s a move by the public broadcaster to make it easier for children to consume content on their own terms -- including “during primetime and other after-school hours when viewing among families is high,” according to a press release.

In addition to on-demand episodes and clips, a stream of the forthcoming television channel -- provided by local stations -- will be able to be viewed on pbskids.org, the PBS Kids Video app and over-the-top platforms such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xbox One, and Chromecast.

The digital service will feature popular PBS shows like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Odd Squad, Wild Kratts and Dinosaur Train. Shortly after its launch, PBS says it will add

PBS Kids Launches YouTube Channel

We aren’t always big on pushing more screens on the young here, but PBS Kids has some great shows, and I’m good with spreading more educational programming options, and PBS Kids now has its own YouTube channel.

The channel, at launch, has tons of clips and videos from staple shows, but also has full episodes of webseries, including Fizzy’s Lunch Lab, and more. I’m hopeful that this will not only mean more exposure to all the great shows on PBS Kids, but that a whole new batch of webseries will show up over the next year and beyond.

Take a look at some more info below, and check out their channel, which as of this moment is rather awesomely pushing Odd Squad.

PBS Kids is now officially on YouTube! Today marks the debut of a new PBS Kids branded YouTube Channel, aimed towards children age 2-8 and their parents.

The "Wild Kratts" Have Very Tame Imaginations

Martin and Chris Kratt, otherwise known as the “Wild Kratts,” are brothers who love nature. In their new collection Wild Kratts Wildest Animal Adventures, the Kratt brothers explore and learn about animals from all around the world from great white sharks to platypus and birds of paradise. At the start of each episode, the real-life brothers introduce the animal they will be following in the episode, and then they transform into cartoon versions of themselves before setting off on their adventure. They also have a team of sidekicks to supply them with whatever they might need, including power discs that grant them powers based on whatever animal they are tracking, and they all together travel around in a giant flying turtle-like laboratory/flying machine.

Netflix Beefs Up Kids’ Offerings In Licensing Deal With PBS

  • Deadline TV
This is the latest volley in the arms race by streaming services to dominate children’s programming — one of the biggest attractions for subscribers. Netflix says this morning that it has an “expanded multiyear licensing agreement” with PBS Distribution for the U.S. and Canada. Beginning in 2014 it will include exclusive digital carriage for PBS Kids’ Super Why! Other kids shows in the deal include Wild Kratts, Caillou and Arthur. It also covers Ken Burns documentaries such as Prohibition and The Central Park Five, past seasons of Nova and Secrets Of The Dead and all seasons of UK murder mystery The Bletchley Circle. “While PBS stations will always be the first place to see our programming, this agreement with Netflix exposes our shows to new audiences and further expands PBS’s presence across all media platforms,” says PBS Digital Gm Jason Seiken.

Amazon To Court Kids With Help From PBS

Children matter when it comes to money matters. If you don’t believe me, just check out which film was the highest grossing this week. That’s right, it was a kids movie. Netflix has made continuous strides to keep kids happy with their program offerings, but now their competitor, Amazon, is seeking to do the same. Amazon’s new deal with PBS will help.

A new multi-year deal between Amazon and some important names in children’s entertainment means that Amazon is well prepared to continue to compete with Netflix. The deal was struck with Nova, Masterpiece and Ken Burns documentaries and PBS Kids series. Some of the series include Caillou, Arthur, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train and Wild Kratts.

Netflix recently introduced Netflix Families, a new page on the Netflix site “designed to meet [your] family’s summer entertainment needs,” with “trusted recommendations of popular family TV shows

Amazon Beefs Up Kids Offerings With Streaming Deal For PBS Series

  • Deadline TV
The new multi-year deal includes Nova, Masterpiece and Ken Burns documentaries and PBS Kids series including Caillou, Arthur, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Dinosaur Train and Wild Kratts, the companies say. The arrangement continues the arms race with Netflix to land children’s shows — kids are a key market for streaming services. (Netflix recently announced a major deal with DreamWorks Animation.) Amazon says that the PBS Kids shows will be available on its Kindle FreeTime Unlimited service, which, paradoxically for a service that bills itself as being “unlimited,” is designed to help parents limit viewing time. The new arrangement along with Amazon’s recent deal with Viacom to offer shows including Dora the Explorer, Go Diego, Go!, and The Backyardigans ”brings some of the most popular kids programming to Prime Instant Video, making it the perfect place for the whole family to catch up on all their favorites,” says Director of

DVD Playhouse--April 2011

DVD Playhouse—April 2011

By

Allen Gardner

Hereafter (Warner Bros.) Clint Eastwood’s spiritual thriller follows a trio of characters whose seemingly disparate paths converge: Matt Damon as a blue collar Joe who tries to fight against his psychic powers that see “the other side,” Cecile de France as a journalist who somehow survives the tsunami that crushed Indonesia, and a London schoolboy (Frankie and George McLaren) who seeks answers after losing his twin brother. Like all of Eastwood’s films, the narrative construction is tight as a drum, with solid work by all involved. That said, “solid” would have to be the operative word to describe the proceedings here, as well as “unremarkable” and “uninvolving” on an emotional level. Perhaps we expect too much when we see Clint’s name on a film these days, but that’s the flip side of being one of the best. Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

Wild Kratts Earth Day Episodes And Giveaway

I hope you've been enjoying Wild Kratts, the new show from the Kratt brothers, who brought you Zoboomafoo and Kratts Creatures. The show really is fantastic, and is a huge hit with everyone in my family.

You probably know that I like to promote educational television as much as I can, and Wild Kratts has some special episodes coming up in support of the Earth Day efforts at PBS. While every episode might well count as helping to promote the general ideals of Earth Day, "Falcon City" and "The Blue and the Gray" have an extra focus on helping to promote the cause.

This show has proven to really be a treat already, and these two episodes look great. Not only does each episode showcase some great animals, but there is quite a bit of fascinating science thrown in, and now, Martin gets to check out life as... a tree.

Wild Kratts Review

If you have children, and haven't been avoiding television at all costs, you're most likely familiar with Zoboomafoo. The animal show with the crazy name featured brothers Chris and Martin Kratt, their hopping lemur friend, and animals galore. They have a new show that kicked off recently, Wild Kratts, and while very different, it's another great show focusing on animals and science.

This time around, the Kratts deliver a mostly-animated sort of adventure, which takes them around the world to explore the lives and habitats of various animals. Along with their team, they study the science of animal life, and create new suits to help them in their quests.

Wild Kratts takes kids on brilliant adventures, from zipping along with fireflies, to exploring the deepest part of the ocean with massive sperm whales, and the usual Kratt charm and fun is in every minute. Bouncing around in all the cool
