CBS All Access announced new plans to bring children’s programming to the service. The expansion into kids’ programming will include original series and more than 1,000 episodes of library programming. Up until now, CBS All Access has focused on teen and adult series, like “Star Trek,” “The Good Fight,” and “The Twilight Zone,” but now the service is ready to expand.
The company stated that the new rollout will begin later this year, which is when the Disney+ streaming service is scheduled to go live. CBS All Access may be buffing up its children’s content before parent’s start trimming their subscriptions to make way for Disney+, but either way, the new schedule will include old favorites and new shows.
The new shows include “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” and new a season of “Danger Mouse.” The classic original programming we mentioned earlier will include the original “Danger Mouse” series, as well as “Inspector Gadget,” “The Adventures of Paddington Bear,” “Madeline,” and “Heathcliff.”
“Based on the age and demographics of our subscriber base, with an average age of 44, we see a significant opportunity to invest in children’s programming and provide even more value for subscribers with new originals and a world-class library of programming, specifically catered to our subscribers’ children,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and COO, CBS Interactive. “We have already acquired two originals and look forward to adding even more prior to launch to further expand our children’s library. This is the latest addition to our expanding content offering at CBS All Access, following our recently announced plans to further diversify our original programming with documentary and unscripted content in addition to our growing roster of flagship series like Star Trek: Discovery, The Good Fight and The Twilight Zone.”
