TORONTO, FEBRUARY 27, 2023 – Get ready to GEAR UP and GET IT DONE! as new Treehouse original series Builder Brothers Dream Factory (40x11min) nails down its world premiere on Sunday, March 26 at 9:40 a.m. ET on Treehouse, and streaming live and on demand on STACKTV. Inspired by the acclaimed Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott, the cutting-edge animated series will be distributed by Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana and is co-produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment and Scott Brothers Entertainment. In the series, the brothers are a pair of regular kids who use their extraordinary imagination, creativity, grit and heart – coupled with a big dose of TWINSPIRATION to help friends and solve problems in the neighborhood by dreaming big, really big, sometimes too big! Along with best friends Mel and Ayana, the brothers navigate the highs and lows of trying to make their world a better place, one big dream at a time.
“We are so proud of this show and are excited for families to experience the creative world of the Builder Brothers,” said Amory Millard, Scott Brothers Entertainment. “Audiences can expect to see the same amount of wit, imagination, and creative construction as they always do from Drew and Jonathan.”
“We are thrilled that this project was able to attract such diverse talent, both emerging and established, who can authentically speak to the experiences of the characters in this community,” said Carla de Jong, Sinking Ship Entertainment.
“Builder Brothers Dream Factory is a welcome addition to our kids portfolio, and Treehouse and STACKTV provide the perfect platform to deliver this entertaining series to our Canadian audiences,” said Mellany Welsh, Head of Nelvana Enterprises. “Drew and Jonathan are world-renowned for making dreams come true and thinking outside the box, which are values we share at Nelvana. We are excited to collaborate with Sinking Ship Entertainment and Scott Brothers Entertainment and look forward to inspiring kids to dream big by embarking on an adventure with the Builder Brothers that is full of transformation, creativity, and resilience.”
Builder Brothers Dream Factory is inspired by the real-life, Canadian Screen Awards nominated hosts of Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott. Drew and Jonathan’s shows on HGTV Canada are beloved by families across the country who connect with the brothers’ can-do and always fun-loving approach.
“This series is one of our most personal projects to-date,” said Drew Scott. “Now that we have our own kids, we are more attuned to sharing the values our own parents instilled in us, but in a fresh and familiar way that resonates with families everywhere.”
“We were raised to believe that we can dream up any big idea, and there’s always a creative way to come together and solve any problem,” added Jonathan Scott. “We hope this series will inspire optimism and teamwork in every home and school across the country.”
It was recently announced that Nelvana signed on longtime partner Discovery Kids Latin America as part of its first major international distribution deal for Builder Brothers Dream Factory in Latin America.
Treehouse can be streamed via STACKTV, available on Amazon Prime Video Channels, FuboTV, Rogers Ignite TV and Ignite Streaming. The network is also available through all major TV distributors, including: Bell, Cogeco, Eastlink, Rogers, SaskTel, Shaw, Shaw Direct, Telus and Videotron.
