LOS ANGELES – Families with young children are spending more time with digital entertainment as the coronavirus pandemic limits many of the outdoor activities they used to have, spurring demand for kid-friendly programming. Increasingly, those households are turning to digital platforms like over-the-top and streaming services for shows they can enjoy together.
WildBrain Spark, the multichannel network that makes and presents videos for kids, is looking to help more marketers reach homebound families that are looking for shows that parents can feel good about.
