Toronto, CAN, July 15, 2021 – Things are about to get ODD…! Leading global kids’ entertainment company Sinking Ship Entertainment (Dino Dana, Endlings) has just released Season 1 of Odd Squad, the much-loved BAFTA Award-winning live-action comedy series co-produced by Fred Rogers Productions, on iTunes. The 10-episode first season is now available to download for £24.90. Odd Squad airs on the CBBC in the UK.
Designed to help kids 5-8 build math, problem-solving, and collaboration skills, Odd Squad centers on four intrepid young agents who are part of Odd Squad, an agency whose mission is to investigate strange happenings. Every episode features a math concept that the Odd Squad uses to set things right. To crack each case, the agents use deductive reasoning and logical thinking—along with teamwork and a hefty dose of humour.
Odd Squad won a BAFTA in the International Live Action category and was named one of the best kids’ shows of the decade by Common Sense Media (2019), among numerous other awards and honors. It has also earned 14 prestigious Daytime Emmy Awards including for Outstanding Children’s or Family Viewing Series (2018) and Outstanding Writing for a Children’s, Preschool Children’s, Family Viewing Series (2018).
Odd Squad was created by Tim McKeon (FosterÊ¼s Home for Imaginary Friends, Adventure Time, The Electric Company) and Adam Peltzman (The Electric Company, The Backyardigans, Wallykazam!) and produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment and Fred Rogers Productions.
