TVOKids' Odd Squad honoured with five Daytime Emmys®

TORONTO, May 1, 2017 /CNW/ - Odd Squad, TVOKids' critically acclaimed live-action math comedy series for kids produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment in association with TVO, was further recognized for its excellence with five awards at the 44th annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards presented on April 28 in Los Angeles. The series features kid agents who solve math-related mysteries CSI-style.

"TVO is committed to helping kids succeed in school and in life with innovative educational content that parents and teachers trust," says Lisa de Wilde, Chief Executive Officer. "Odd Squad is a shining example of how, by collaborating with a partner like Sinking Ship Entertainment, TVO can offer television programming that helps Ontario children learn important skills while having fun at the same time."

Odd Squad received awards for Outstanding Performer in a Children's, Pre-School Children's or Family Viewing Program (Isaac Kragten) and Outstanding Writing Special Class for Odd Squad: The Movie (Tim McKeon, Mark De Angelis and Adam Peltzman). The series also received Emmys for Outstanding Costume Design/Styling, Outstanding Hairstyling, and Outstanding Makeup.

Earlier this spring, TVO received a record-setting 23 Daytime Emmy nominations – the most TVO has ever earned for its children's content by the National Academy of Television Arts & Science.

Odd Squad is available on air as well as on demand at tvokids.com and on the TVOKids YouTube channel.
