MEDIA RELEASE

GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU TO HAVE ITS WORLD PREMIERE ON DISNEY JUNIOR IN NEW ZEALAND AND AUSTRALIA THIS FATHER’S DAY

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, July 18, 2011...
The much anticipated preschool animated series GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU — The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare from SLR Productions will have its world premiere on Disney Junior in New Zealand and Australia this Father’s Day, Sunday, September 4, 2011, at 4:30 p.m, exclusively on SKY Television in NZ and on the FOXTEL and AUSTAR platforms in Australia.

The animated series, featuring 52 11-minute episodes, is the first-time adaptation of the best-selling classic, “GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU”, and relates the adventures of the Nutbrown Hare family and their friends with the same endearing simplicity and love that has made the book timeless. For over 15 years, this memorable picture book about a father and son’s efforts to measure how much they love each other has enchanted children and adults the world over.

“We are extremely proud GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU — The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare will have its world premiere launch on Disney Junior in New Zealand and Australia this Father’s Day. The series has a beautiful message of love between a father and son and is filled with friendship, laughter and discovery, making it an ideal fit for the channel. We are thrilled the show will be in the hearts and homes of Kiwi and Aussie families”, said Executive Producer, Suzanne Ryan.

“Disney Junior’s programming features unparalleled storytelling and timeless characters, while also blending learning and developmental skills, and GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU — The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare, with its heart-warming stories and classic animation, sits perfectly on the channel”, said Leisa Sadler, General Manager, Branded Media Content, Disney Channels New Zealand and Australia. “In addition, we’re very excited to be involved in such an important local production and to see it premiere globally in our market”.

Always ready to play and laugh, Little Nutbrown Hare bounds through his days with a twitching curiosity. The ever patient Big Nutbrown Hare lovingly leads his son on journeys of discovery about the joys that nature holds. Inquisitive Little Field Mouse and mischievous Little Grey Squirrel often join them on adventures and not too far away they might encounter clever Little Redwood Fox or Little White Owl with her tall tales of mystery and magic. Together they explore the meadows, forests and streams, playing, laughing, and discovering the wonder that the world holds.

GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU — The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare keeps love as the major theme and each adventure in the series has a particular season as its backdrop -—the wildflowers of Spring, the long, lazy days of Summer, the brilliant colours of Autumn or the frozen landscape of Winter.

The picture book, written by Sam McBratney, illustrated by Anita Jeram and published by Walker Books, has become an international publishing phenomenon, selling more than 26 million copies worldwide.

To coincide with the broadcast Walker Books New Zealand and Australia will release an exquisite keep-sake Guess How Much I Love You ‘The Pop Up Edition’ in October ($29.95).

To date, the animated series has been picked up for broadcast in Germany, Canada, Finland and Sweden. The series will also be seen on Disney Junior in the United States.

GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU — The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare is co-produced with Scrawl Studios in Singapore and German broadcaster, KI.KA and ARD’s HR (Hessischer Rundfunk). CCI Entertainment holds the worldwide distribution and licensing rights in Latin America, Asia, Middle East and Africa for the series.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
