In a statement, the Canadian media company said it will premiere eight original productions across numerous platforms.
Vancouver-based Thunderbird is behind popular titles such as ‘The Last Kids on Earth,’ ‘$ave My Reno,’ ‘Highway Thru Hell’ and the award-winning CBC sitcom ‘Kim’s Convenience.’
The company creates award-winning scripted, unscripted and animated programming for the world's leading digital platforms, as well as Canadian and international broadcasters and streaming companies such as Netflix, Disney+, NBC Universal and Nickelodeon.
The new fall line-up is a result of the first phase of a strategic global development plan that the company initiated nearly 18 months ago, Thunderbird said in its release.
CEO Jennifer Twiner McCarron hailed the company’s record-breaking eight productions set to premiere this fall season and said there were several more in the pipeline.
"Whether it's breaking down barriers with shows like Molly of Denali, and Kim's Convenience, enthralling and educating like Highway Thru Hell, and High Arctic Haulers, or bringing smiles and excitement like 101 Dalmatian Street and The Last Kids on Earth, we are deeply proud of every person involved in these productions, and can't wait to see how they are embraced by audiences around the world," McCarron said.
Thunderbird operates three production divisions, including Atomic Cartoons, Great Pacific Media and Thunderbird Productions, which focuses on scripted content.
Thunderbird shares closed trading at C$1.17 on Tuesday in Toronto.
