WGBH Radio and Television Key Developments

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and WGBH Sign Co-Production Agreement for Gossie & Friends Television Series

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and WGBH announced a co-production agreement for the creation of a television and cross-platform series based on the Gossie & Friends book series, published by HMH and written and illustrated by Olivier Dunrea. HMH and WGBH will partner to pursue a domestic broadcasting arrangement for the series, as well as international co-production financing. The series will emphasize social emotional learning, which is a critical curriculum area for the preschool audience of two-to-five year olds. With more than one million copies sold globally across all formats, the Gossie & Friends series is the story of a band of inquisitive goslings who navigate common childhood concerns, such as new siblings, sharing, and lost toys. Launched in 2002 with the publication of Gossie and Gossie & Gertie, the series has since grown to nineteen titles, has been reviewed by People Magazine, the New York Times Book Review, and the Huffington Post, among others, and been recommended by Parenting Magazine as a "must have" book for babies. The Gossie & Friends television series will be developed by Carol Greenwald and Dorothea Gillim, executive producer of Curious George, with Gillim as executive producer.
