HBO Max picks up US rights to pre-school adventure Love Monster

HBO Max has picked up the US rights to the new pre-school adventure Love Monster, from Boat Rocker Studios’, a division of global media company Boat Rocker Media.

A hit since it premiered on CBeebies in the UK in late January, the animated series is based on the award-winning preschool books of the same name by Rachel Bright.

Love Monster follows the exploits of one-of-a-kind, huggable hero Love Monster as he navigates the challenges involved in being a bit funny looking in a world of cute fluffy things. Every day provides Love Monster the opportunity to embark on all kinds of big adventures with his friends in Fluffytown, where, together, they learn all kinds of little life lessons.

Full of heart and helping preschoolers understand and manage different emotions, Love Monster showcases the importance of kindness, empathy, connection and instinct.

In addition to HBO Max, multiple other international broadcast partners have come on board since launch, including ABC Australia, CBC Canada, RTE Ireland, YLE Finland, TVNZ New Zealand, MBC Middle East, Canal Panda Spain and Viu TV Hong Kong.

Love Monster is a ground-breaking collaboration between BBC Children’s In-House Productions, Boat Rocker Studios, and Chinese entertainment company, UYoung.  Boat Rocker Studios is managing the global content distribution and consumer products program for the franchise.
