TORONTO, Feb. 2, 2023 /CNW/ – Spin Master (TSX: TOY) (www.spinmaster.com) and Corus Entertainment announced today the premiere of Rubble & Crew on Corus’ top kids network Treehouse and STACKTV beginning Saturday, February 4 at 9:15 a.m. (ET/PT). Produced by Spin Master Entertainment, the highly anticipated spin-off series from preschool franchise PAW Patrol follows the adventures of fan-favorite English bulldog Rubble and his construction crew family.
“As a proud member of the PAW Patrol, Rubble has stolen the hearts of preschoolers around the world with his loyal, optimistic nature and penchant for treats,” said Jennifer Dodge, Spin Master’s President of Entertainment and Executive Producer. “Our new series expands Rubble’s world with storytelling that digs into amazing construction projects and the importance of family, combined with high-stakes action, fun adventures and messy demolition that preschoolers will love.”
Set in the community of Builder Cove, a neighboring town to PAW Patrol‘s Adventure Bay, Rubble & Crew centers on Rubble, the funny and optimistic leader of the construction crew. In the small, quickly growing town, lots of things are still needed for the community to come together, including a bigger airport, train station, bridges, tunnels, schools, fire stations, parks and more. Rubble and his construction pup family–his pup cousins Mix, Wheeler, Charger, Motor, along with Grandpa Gravel and Auntie Crane–must work together to tackle and build all the projects the town needs.
“For the last decade, PAW Patrol has won over the hearts of families everywhere and established itself as a beloved pre-school favourite,” said Jennifer Abrams, SVP Networks and Programming, Corus Entertainment. “As we warmly welcome Rubble & Crew to Treehouse, we look forward to continuing to showcase the best in Canadian animation for our viewers.”
Rubble & Crew is comprised of an all-Canadian voice cast for Rubble and his family of six pups that includes Luxton Handspiker (“Slumberland“, “Handmaid’s Tale“), Sabrina Jalees (“Search Party“), Martin Roach (“The Shape of Water“), Shawdeh Kapadia (“Odd Squad“), Liam McKenna (“Maleficent“), Alberta Bolan, and Alessandro Pugiotto. The series is animated by Toronto-based Jam Filled Entertainment.
Rubble & Crew is executive produced by Jennifer Dodge, Ronnen Harary, Laura Clunie, Toni Stevens and Bradley Zweig, and is directed by Dianna Basso and supervising director Joey So. Rubble & Crew was developed by Bradley Zweig based on the original PAW Patrol television series created by Keith Chapman.
This year marks PAW Patrol‘s 10th anniversary, and the pups are heading back to the big screen on October 13th, 2023, with the theatrical movie sequel, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie™, from Spin Master Entertainment, Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures and distributed by Elevation Pictures in Canada.
