Cynopsis: Kids!


Good morning. It’s Tuesday, December 5, 2006 and this is your first early morning Kids! briefing.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has released Children, Adolescents, and Advertising, a new policy statement published this week in the December issue of Pediatrics.  The AAP reports young people view 40,000+ ads on TV per year, and that this kind of exposure might be a significant contributor to obesity, poor nutrition, eating disorders, and cigarette and alcohol abuse.  The statements also points to other ways that advertisers are reaching young people including increased exposure to advertising on the internet, and in magazines and in schools, as well as looking to the coming of interactive digital TV, as other ways that advertisers are reaching young people.  In addition to pointing out the issues, the AAP also offers some recommendations to help alleviate some of the negative effects that advertising may be having on kids/adolescents people, including appealing to Congress:

  • Educate young people to be more media literate – better critical viewers
  • AAP points to evidence that birth control ads may lower teen pregnancy rates, without increasing the activity of the demo
  • Shift ads for Viagra and other ED medications until after 10p – the concept being that these ads make sexual activity seem like a “recreational sport.”
  • Pediatricians should work with parents, schools, community group and the like to “ban or severely curtail,” all in-school advertising
  • Pediatrician waiting rooms should feature no magazines that carry tobacco or alcohol ads.
  • Recommend patients watch two-hours or less of non-educational TV on a daily basis
  • Pediatricians should also work with parents, community and public groups to get Congress to
    •  Limit commercial advertising on kid’s programming
    •  Place a ban on junk food ads  primarily during kids programming
    •  Place a ban on tobacco ads in all media
    •  Regulate alcohol ads so that only the product is shown  no cartoon characters or female models
    •  Increase program funding for Public TV
    •  Establish a national task force on advertising

This week marks the re-launch of the AtomFilms website that now includes a broadband TV service, a syndicated video player, a high-resolution video playback option and customizable channels.  The new AtomFilms bows with the premiere of Hellholes, the pilot episode of horror-comedy series of the same name, developed by AtomFilms Studio and created by Kyle Rankin and Efram Potelle.  Also launching on the site is a new Comedy Central channel featuring episodes of the channel’s web shows including the new Good God.  Neither is for kids.  The newly re-launched AtomFilms website is supported by its exclusive mobile video partner Verizon Wireless, which offers an AtomFilms channel on its V Cast service.  AtomFilms is part of Atom Entertainment, which was acquired by MTV Networks earlier this fall.


Disney Channel Europe is teaming with Chorion for an animated adaptation of Famous Five, based on the book series of the same name by Enid Blyton, first published in the 1940s.  Set to premiere in the UK in 2008, the animated Famous Five will include 26-episodes and the language will be updated to reflect more modern times. Blyton is well known for her other stories including Noddy and The Secret Seven.  For Disney Channel, the Famous Five project comes as it plans to open up a UK office to develop and produce original programming.  To that end, Disney Channel Europe is also currently in development on two additional projects. The first is Bunny Town, a mixed live-action/puppet series developed with American Spiffy Pictures, which will be produced in the UK by Bakercoogan.  The second is Quelli dell’Intervallo (translates as Break Kids)  an Italian short-form project that catches kids through a classroom window talking about daily events.  Localized versions of Quelli dell’Intervallo are currently airing in France, Germany and Spain.


The World Series of Video Games (WSVG) has signed deals with broadcast, cable and satellite TV networks CBS, CSTV and VOOM HD Networks’ GAMEPLAY HD to air 20 hours of original programming coverage of the 2006 season for the US.  Presented by Intel, the World Series of Video Games is an international professional video game competition including multiple game platforms.  The agreement comes on the heels of the MTV, which premiered last month.  International distribution agreements are in the works.

  • CBS will air They Got Game, Stars of the World Series of Video Games presented by Intel, on December 30, at 3p.  Hosted by Quddus and produced by Juma Entertainment, the 1-hr special will feature the personal stories of up and coming competitive video game stars including Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, David “Moto” Geffon, Shannon “Mary Jane” Ridge, and Matt “Ballistics” Powers.
  • CSTV: College Sports Television is set to produce coverage of the WSVG Finals as part of a five-week series Sundays at 9p, beginning January 21, 2007.  CSTV’s 1-hr specials will cover a three-day competition, featuring 95 gamers who qualified on the WSVG Circuit in 2006, in NYC at Chelsea Piers Sports and Entertainment Complex. Additionally, CSTV will launch a new WSVG broadband channel on cstv.com, which will carry the live Team Sportscast Network streamcast of the Finals.  CSTV is a unit of CBS.
  • GAMEPLAY HD will cover the 2006 WSVG major tournaments, with episodes this month focusing on events in Kentucky, Texas and Sweden.  Additional episodes are slated to air in February.  Throughout the month viewers can log onto www.gameplayhd.com to view streaming online video of GAMEPLAY HD’s WSVG coverage, a new episode will be posted online every Friday at 8p and will available throughout the week.

Concrete Pictures has produced a series of 30 second spots targeted to early elementary school kids for PBS Kids Go! on air and online site.  Together Concrete Pictures and PBS Kids Go selected 12 real kids from around the US who are doing unique and/or creative things to be featured in the short-form segments with the aim of inspiring kids to try new things as well as set goals.  Segments include an 8year old boxer; a girl who is an award-winning skier who also happens to be in a wheelchair; an 11 year old boy who creates art using Duct Tape; and a boy who scaled Mt. Kilimanjaro.

In January, G4 will launch a new online interactive platform when it premieres Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0 on its network January 15 at 9p. The interactive version will include Beam Me Up Chats – on-screen live chats, trivia games under Trek Facts, and other interactive elements that can be accessed at g4tv.com. Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0 will air Monday-Friday at 9p and is distributed by CBS Television Distribution.

Independent Film Channel is set to premiere a new 1-hr Friday evening anime programming block beginning January 5, 2007 at 11p.  The new block will feature two of FUNimation Entertainment’s anime series Basilisk and Gunslinger Girl.  The anime block will lead into IFC’s new line-up titled Grindhouse.  The anime block follows IFC success in spring 2006 when it debuted Samurai 7, an anime series from FUNimation.  Neither anime, Basilisk nor Gunslinger Girl, are for kids.


Take-Two Interactive and Double Vision, an in-game advertising company, have inked a deal for the sale of in-game ads in up to nine game titles from Take-Two’s 2K and 2K Sports publisher labels.  Under the deal, Double Fusion will serve as the exclusive North American and European ad opportunities in select 2K titles set for release in 2007 and 2008.  Double Vision will also serve as the exclusive representative and technology provider for 2K across all platforms (PC and console) with the exception of the Xbox and Xbox 360.  Some versions of the games will provide marketers with “deep integration” into game-play and storylines, reaching gamers whether or not they are connected to the internet, in addition to reaching gamers through real time media buys.

Nickelodeon and Viacom Consumer Products has entered into a multi-year international licensing deal with MEGA Brands Inc. to develop construction toys based on Nick Jr.’s preschool brands.  Under the pact MEGA Brands will create playsets and vehicles based on Go Diego Go!, The Backyardigans and Dora the Explorer.  The new licensed products will launch in 2007 rolling out first in the US and Canada followed later in the year by the UK, France, Australia, and Latin America and other regions in 2008.


JAKKS Pacific celebrates the Rocky franchise and the upcoming MGM feature film, Rocky Balboa, with the introduction of six series of Rocky action figures, toy boxing gloves and championship belts.  While I am not a huge Rocky fan (go ahead hate me) even I am tempted to buy the Training Rocky I action figure that comes with … you are going to love this … its own Side of Meat “figure”.  I just gotta have this – it will be perfect on the shelf next to my Vanilla Ice doll.  Rocky Balboa will be released nationwide December 20, 2006.


Ian Birch has been upped to EVP and Chief Content Officer, Gemstar-TV Guide.  He will work with the editorial and programming teams at the company’s businesses to develop and grow the cross-platform content efforts and will be responsible for overseeing the integration of these content opportunities.  Additionally, he will establish broad strategic deals with a range of content providers.  Birch will also retain his role as Editor-in-Chief, TV Guide magazine.  He will continue to report to CEO, Rich Battista.  Birch, who joined TV Guide in 2004, oversaw the editorial aspects of the re-launch of TV Guide in 2005.  Previously he was Editorial Director of two UK weekly entertainment magazines, EMAP’s heat and Closer.

Scholastic has appointed Seth D. Radwell as President, Scholastic at Home.  In his new role, Radwell will be responsible for Scholastic’s school continuity programs and the Back to Basics Toys division.  Additionally, Radwell, who currently serves as President, eScholastic, will retain that position and its responsibilities as well.  Radwell will report to Richard Robinson, Chairman, President and CEO, Scholastic.
